Favourite projects

Your favourite building: Jarrestadt Winterhude
because: Housing project of the 1920s and 1930s,
Central block and row houses by Karl Schneider and school by Fritz Schumacher.

Your own favourite project from your office: Spiegel Island
because: it was possible to transform an ensemble of the 1960s that was intended purely for office use
with three new buildings into an open, mixed-use quarter. Werner Kallmorgen’s two office high-rises from 1967 and 1969 were renovated in line with the requirements of a listed building and equipped with modern building services, fire and noise protection. The three new buildings have a design that is restrained by their equal height and their elegant façade language. The skyscrapers that characterise the cityscape have thus been given a new, connecting base that links Speicherstadt and HafenCity with an outdoor space that is open to the public.
