Spiegel Grundstück, Hamburg

The central idea behind the design lies in the combination of the seemingly contradictory, of classic modern and traditional urban design, to form a symbiotic ensemble. The listed high-rise buildings are incorporated in a kind of urban redensification into a block shaped like a ship, which clearly reasserts the identity of Hamburg’s Old Town. The ultimate shape of the block evolved sculpturally and picks up on the existing lines and associations of the city.
