Residential High-Rise Holzhafen Hamburg

The re­vi­tal­i­sa­tion projects line up along the edge of the harbour like a “string of pearls” in Hamburg-Altona, and they have been created as a result of the re­struc­tur­ing ongoing since the mid-1980s. The 21-storey glass res­i­den­tial tower at Holzhafen is an eye­catch­er amid the rhyth­mi­cal jux­ta­po­si­tion of flat harbour buildings and vertical cranes between two brick-faced office complexes. This landmark stands on a plinth of black natural stone above which 37 apart­ments are arranged boasting a 270 degree panoramic view in the towers with their total focus on the Elbe. The flat glass façade with casement windows lends the tower which divides into two in the upper stories, crys­talline lines. The parts of the building designed as an irregular pentagon and rectangle are connected by a glass lift.

As a town by the water, Hamburg possesses many at­trac­tive locations which leads to hot com­pe­ti­tion in the high-priced res­i­den­tial segment. Since its com­ple­tion in 2011, this crys­talline res­i­den­tial tower with its ex­cep­tion­al position in the Holzhafen does full justice to these exclusive as­pi­ra­tions. ASTOC produced high-tech apart­ments with open floor plans, high ceilings and glazed corners with panoramic views which were designed by different interior designers with a high standard of fittings. In the prismatic structure, the apart­ments in the area of the plinth, each of 60 - 100 sqm, as well as those in the towers measuring 120 - 360 sqm each, possess large outdoor areas with deep, wind-shielded loggias and terraces. The res­i­den­tial tower has been carefully embedded in the harbour’s edge in order to open up a view of the water from the districts behind.
