New Apartments and the New Engel & Volkers Headquarters in Hamburg’s HafenCity
- Richard Meier & Partners Architects
- HafenCity, Hamburg, Alemanha
The mixed-use building is the most recent development in Hamburg’s HafenCity by the Firm and it will combine the new Engel & Völkers headquarters, luxury condominiums, and rental apartments.
Behind the project stands a joint venture between the renowned property developer Quantum Immobilien AG and Engel & Völkers AG named Quartier am Strandkai GmbH & Co. KG.
The exclusive “STRANDHAUS by Richard Meier” condominiums have been conceived of as a 16-storey residential tower with its own separate entrance. The third to 15th floors will consist of 66 unique apartments while the 16th floor will offer two large penthouses at the top.
In addition to the building structure, Richard Meier & Partners has also designed significant interior details. These include open and spacious, light-flooded interiors with ceiling-height doors and floor-to-ceiling windows open to the city, the Elbe River, and the city port. Residents of these apartments will also enjoy access to a private gym situated on the 16th floor with panoramic views of Hamburg.
The 16-storey ensemble is expected to be completed in 2018, and it aspires to contribute to the redevelopment of Hamburg’s HafenCity district and to the skyline of the city. Richard Meier & Partners has designed over 20 buildings in Germany, including the recently completed Arp Museum in Rolandseck and the award-winning Coffee Plaza in Hamburg.
