Caruso St John has won an invited competition for the new headquarters of publishing house Gruner+Jahr which will be built in Lohsepark in Hamburg’s Hafen City.
The 60 000 m² of accommodation is organised around three courtyards. The main entrance is through the first of these courts, which is covered and gathers together the public and social spaces of the building. The ground floor accommodates places to eat, television studios and co-working spaces, as well as a contemporary art space for the city. Offices are accommodated in the upper floors of the building and culminate in a series of roof gardens and associated social spaces that afford views over the city. The stepped volume of the building is clad in specially made glazed terracotta.
Enormous steel roof trusses are being craned into position at the Swiss Life Arena in Zurich. The roof structure will be in place within the month and the building will top-out before the end of Summer. Construction is set to complete in Spring and the building will open to the public in Summer 2022.
