Elbschau

Project type: Condominium

 

Location: Hamburg, Germany

 

Time:  2012

 

Status: Design Study

 

Client: DESIGN Bau AG

Between the oldest and the newest park of the city of Hamburg lies a commercial zone at the river Elbe in the district Rothenburgsort. In this area the design “Elbschau” suggests a large housing unit with a view above the river, right behind the Elbpark Entenwerder.  It would take up several local traditions and structures in order to really tie the project to the location. At the flood line we would develop a levee, onto which six of the nine structures could be set. The bank construction would hide all necessary storing and parking positions as well as all side rooms of the buildings.
