Campustower

Campustower

Competition – residential and office complex,
Baakenhafen, Hamburg
2015

In the immediate vicinity of Lohsepark and HafenCity University, GARBE Immobilien-Projekte GmbH is developing the "Campustower" project with approximately 22,000 sq.m of floor space. Office concepts are planned for start-ups and founders, as well as space for scientific institutions, retail and gastronomy. In the residential building, subsidised rental apartments and owner-occupied apartments are planned with views towards Baakenhafen (port).

The façade of the high-rise structure and the adjoining office building are designed as a ribbon façade. A play of light and dark surfaces picks up on the alternating light and shadow of the water surface. The façade appears articulated and homogeneous in itself. On closer inspection, the fine bottom rails between the light and dark surfaces on the parapet become more clearly visible. Looking even closer at the façade, you can see horizontal aluminium profile walls that further differentiate the parapet areas. The 1.35 m grid of the office façade is homogenised to the outside by the impact discs – the vertical elements are visually pushed into the background.

The frontage of the residential building also thrives on a strong horizontal structure. Slim horizontal panels along the floorplates shift across the façade and thus connect the individual elements with one another.
