HAMBURG - first prize
The design contest NEUE HAMBURGER TERRASSEN has been promoted by the IBA HAMBURG (Internationale Bauausstellung) an International exhibition that will take place in 2013 with the purpose to rehabilitate the industrial district situated on the south of the river Elbe in a residential area and to integrate it to the city of Hamburg. In the NEUE HAMBURGER TERRASSEN project LAN Architecture makes reference to the typology of the social and workers residences (Terraces Houses) to restore a contemporary version. The studio develops a plan integrating different typologies from individual houses to collective residences. The street becomes a further space to “live”. Particular attention was paid to neighbourhood relations and to create collective “sociability” spaces. Buildings façades are very homogeneous, classical and regular creating a unitary image for the whole district.
