Mixed Development | Elbberg Campus Altona | Hamburg | ART Architekten

Situated between warehouses, industrial buildings, and green areas, the Elbberg Campus in Hamburg’s Großen Elbstraße, Altona, combines living, working and relaxation with another. The design is based upon the remains of existing buildings: newly designed offices, apartments and lofts are located within a newly designed park landscape, following the contours of the slope. New footpaths, staircases and terraces connect the areas above the Altonaer Balkon, to the harbour. The office building is is orientated towards the public spaces: the roof of the base of the building serves as an extensive terrace, offering a wonderful view over the harbour.
