KPTN, Hamburg

The building ensemble KPTN in Hamburg captures “city” in all its diversity in very limited space. Behind the facades there is a sophisticated mix of urban housing, a hotel, a top class cinema, a public underground car park, restaurants and shops. The approx. 220 residential units, which include private housind and subsidised apartments, are spread across five buildings. This inner-city, mixed-use concept benefits from generous landscaping and rooftop gardens.

Edge Elbside DNA - Vattenfall Headquarters

blauraum designed the new Vattenfall Headquarters in Hamburg's HafenCity as a sustainable wood hybrid construction. Its complex DNA takes into account the interests of the many stakeholders: It provides modern and open working spaces grouped around a large sun atrium. The city gains a lively and public ground floor zone, while the owner can respond flexibly to possible changes in use.

Living at Hubland

Simplicity and durability characterize the nine buildings in Würzburg's new district Hubland. Energy consumption is kept low due to reduced technology and durable materials. The comfort and well-being of the residents are the focus of the massive construction. The outer wall construction consists of thermally insulated perforated bricks. These buildings are durable - the maintenance of the houses can be ensured with little effort.

News & Innovations

Innovative high-rises designed as wood hybrid constructions
blauraum engages in the design of innovative wood hybrid buildings. In Berlin at the entrance of the City West, the architects have designed a new high-rise based on the CREE system, a simple module-based support system – sustainable, flexible and light. Next to the existing buildings of the 60s and 80s, the newly planned office and residential building impresses with a transparent appearance. In the gap between the office and the residential part, a lobby is created, which acts as both a connection and a separation and opens to the vertical.

Another high-rise intended as headquarters for Vattenfall has been designed for a central location in Hamburg’s HafenCity. The wood hybrid construction takes into account the interests of the many stakeholders: It provides modern and open working spaces grouped around a large sun atrium. The city gains a lively and public ground floor zone, while the owner can respond flexibly to possible changes in use.

New hybrid city block completed in downtown Hamburg
In downtown Hamburg, a new hybrid city block has been completed. The quarter KPTN, planned by blauraum Architekten, combines a variety of uses under one roof. From the outside you can hardly detect its functional diversity – but behind the facades there is a sophisticated mix of urban housing, a hotel, a top class cinema, a public underground car park, restaurants and shops. The approx. 220 residential units, which include owner-occupied, rented and subsidised apartments, are spread across five buildings. This inner-city, mixed-use concept benefits from generous landscaping and rooftop gardens. This city within a city constitutes a key hybrid city component of HafenCity and the Überseequartier.

Reference to the nearby UNESCO World Heritage Site „Speicherstadt“ is made not only with the varied brick facade, but also with the open and flexible construction concept, which is modelled on the typical warehouses – creating an urban city warehouse. Sustainable building is defined as long-term adaptability.
