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.
