Office Building, Grosser Burstah

Hamburg, Germany 2014–present (under construction)

Client: Bilton Real Estate GmbH

This commission was won in an invited competition organised by the city. The new office building for the developer Bilton Real Estate GmbH is part of a wider project to rearrange the shape of the city streets to the north of St Nikolai Memorial, which were lost in the post-war development of the site. The wider master plan re-establishes a scale of city block that is more consistent with the older streets in this central quarter of the city, making it more permeable. The new building will provide 13,700 square metres of offices and retail space, over ten floors.
