Office building „ADA 1“
An der Alster 1, Hamburg - first prize
The building site is directly located at the fascinating intersection between the lively downtown of Hamburg and its urban landscape rich of water and old trees. It is the transition from town to nature, and the gate building to the busy innercity. The horizontal striped facade with its floating eyes celebrates the view onto this unique context. In front of the building lies a public park which continues the design strategy of the facade into the landscape. The „eyes“ in the facade and the plattforms in the park form places to meet and contemplate. The office spaces serve both a generic spatial layout and specific moments related to the „eyes“. Large spans provide various possibilites of office layouts in combination with balconies and climatically tempered outdoor spaces of the „eyes“.
