Wednesday, June 14th, 2017

Article source: gmp · Architekten von Gerkan, Marg und Partner

What could a natural history museum of the 21st century look like? The special exhibition of the Academy for Architectural Culture (aac) in the Zoological Museum, Hamburg, provides some answers. In the context of the Evolutioneum workshop, scholarship students of the aac have produced designs in two parts, which are on display at the Zoological Museum, Hamburg, until 27 August. The Evolutioneum is a museum concept which builds a bridge between science and the public, and which also provides space for natural science collections and exhibitions.

Superbude 2 in Hamburg, Germany by DREIMETA GmbH & Co. KG

Wednesday, May 24th, 2017

Article source: DREIMETA GmbH & Co. KG 

With its dual concept between a hostel and a hotel the Superbude I in Hamburg attracts a broad-range target group. Its location in the centre of the hip district „Schanze“ enables a surprisingly unconventional design.

Our task:

Our task was to further develop and design the successful concept „Superbude“. This included designing the „Buden“, a colloquial word used for the rooms in this hotel, as well as the public areas such as the lobby, bar and shop etc. The hotel / hostel is in a listed building, once a Deutsche Post switching centre at the turn of the century. For this reason the staircases were restored true to the original.

ADA1, “An der Alster 1” in Hamburg, Germany by J. MAYER H. Architects

Tuesday, April 18th, 2017

Article source: J. MAYER H. Architects 

The building site is situated at the intersection between Hamburg’s lively downtown and  its urban landscape that is rich in water and mature trees. It is at the transition from city  to nature, and the gateway building to the bustling metropolitan core.

The horizontal striped facade with its floating “eyes” celebrates the view onto this unique  context. A public park in front of the building continues the design strategy of the facade  into the landscape. The “eyes” in the facade and the platforms in the park enable the  places to meet and contemplate.

Directly on the Elbe, commanding a prominent position in the HafenCity, stands the Marco Polo Tower right beside the new Unilever headquarters, also by Behnisch Architekten. The 55 m high tower punctuates the end of the route from the inner city out to the new attractions, the Cruise Ship Terminal and the Promenade on Strandkai. In its form and arrangement, it is a unique and remarkable sculptured building, adding to Hamburg’s silhouette on the Elbe. Its 17 above ground levels, each turned a few degrees on their axis, allow all 58 apartments spectacular views over the harbour and the city.

The Japanese corporation Olympus is planning a corporate center in the Hamburg district of Hammerbrook for the economic zone in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA). Von Gerkan, Marg and Partners Architects (gmp) were successful in winning the bidding process for the design of the new office building with medical engineering faculty in the City Süd neighborhood, and was commissioned with the project.

BSU Hamburg in Germany by Sauerbruch Hutton architects

Thursday, January 5th, 2017

Article source: NBK Keramik GmbH

The second largest city in Germany is often referred to as the “gateway to the world”. The Free and Hanseatic City has the largest and most important commercial port in the country and acts as a transport hub for ships from all over the world. Important sea routes to the North and East open out from Hamburg, and major import and export companies, forwarding and shipping companies are based here.

The city on the river Elbe with its green areas and bodies of water, its architecturally impressive cityscape and its Hanseatic flair is also one of the most beautiful cities in Germany. A lively art and cultural scene, shopping and entertainment districts and not least the lively, cosmopolitan atmosphere explain its appeal. And Hamburg is growing – for years its population has been on the rise, and the forecasts suggest a further increase, which needs to be reflected in the city’s building and transport infrastructure.

Cinnamon Tower in Hamburg, Germany by BOLLES+WILSON GmbH & Co. KG

Tuesday, December 20th, 2016

Article source: BOLLES+WILSON GmbH & Co. KG

The Cinnamon tower was conceived as freestanding campanile – a pin on a piazza was the concept behind the premiated competition design by BOLLES+WILSON for the existing 19th century Harbour Masters Building.

A tower was not anticipated in the competition programme, but the jury agreed that a tower anchors the public functions around the only remaining historical building to survive between the megablocks of the ‘Overseas Quarter’ master plan. The historic building would thus be more autonomous.

Kinderkreisel, nursery in Hamburg, Germany by KRAUS SCHÖNBERG ARCHITEKTEN

Tuesday, April 19th, 2016


The nursery on Hamburg’s northeast side occupies a large site where the children can play amid mature trees. The relation­ship to nature is an important part of the school’s pedagogic concept. The building integrates in the small-scale fabric of neighboring sin¬gle-family homes: the build¬ing mass has been apportioned in smaller subunits which are linked by open courtyards. Each of the classrooms has an adjoining quiet room and lavatory.

Quarter of Nations in Hamburg, Germany by Gerber Architekten

Thursday, June 11th, 2015

Article source: Gerber Architekten

The ‘Quarter of Nations‘ in Hamburg’s Wilhelmsburg district was created in connection with the IBA 2013 – a model intercultural housing project intended to house more than 1,700 inhabitants originating from 30 different nations. Gerber Architekten extended a traditional workers’ housing development with two new buildings that respond to the most fundamental elements of the existing architecture and reinterpret them by incorporating sculptural head-end volumes, whilst simultaneously reconciling them with the high energy efficiency requirements of a passive building. There are a total of 75 publicly-funded housing units, of different sizes and offering different forms of accommodation; they combine accommodation types suitable for single persons, couples and families, thereby ensuring an appropriately-mixed social profile for the ‘Quarter of Nations‘.
