Combining residential, commercial and office functions at Hamburg’s prime HafenCity location, the project divides into two separate volumes that share a ground floor of two separate entrance lobbies for the offices and the apartments. The residential units are located in the tower building that offers outstanding views of the adjacent green park. On the topmost level, two penthouses with terraces enjoy a panoramic view of the whole city.

The sharp look of the tall residential volume with large sheets of sandstone arranged in an irregular pattern contrasts with the dark reddish clinker of the office building’s horizontal facade. The discord is broken by the shared bronze tone of the windows.
