HafenCity

HafenCity Hamburg

Although this grand and challenging project is still under construction for the next years, the character of HafenCity is clearly discerning. A unique combination of recent building history and nowadays architecture. Completely renovated Speicherstadt, adapted to the present requirements for work environments. A hotbed of diverse business. Adjacent to ultramodern structures of residential blocks in a wide diversity of architectural styles with an ‘overhanging’ similarity. The interwoven new office buildings reflects old school dullness, that’s too bad for this ‘new life environment’. The Elbe Philharmonic Hall will become the focal point. Depending on your position, it shows a different look. From overwhelming huge to ‘it fits in her surroundings’. A brilliant piece of design. For sure, I’am going to follow the developments in HafenCity. As I do with ‘Kop van Zuid’.

I love Rotterdam. I love Hamburg.
