For a site in Hamburg, at Baakenhafen -Hafen City, we developed in collaboration with Frantzen et al a scheme for a highly sustainable housing blok for ‘Baugruppe Tor zur Welt‘. The project brief asked for an innovative, creative, sustainable and family friendly wooden building for 28 households. View to the river Elbe, noise influence of the harbour activities, flexibility of the floor plans up to the last moment, were to be integrated in a building with a maximum use of wood as the main building material. An 8 storey high wood-building with its own characteristic identity.
