Oval, Hamburg

Living in first row

This eleven-storey residential tower is situated on the northern bank of the Kaiserkai in Hamburg‘s HafenCity. This exposed location offers a beautiful view of downtown Hamburg, the Speicherstadt and the harbour. Following an analysis of the site-specific wind conditions an elliptical building form was selected as the most suitable.

The wave form of the glass façade and balconies was optimised according to views and sun altitudes. Each floor level can provide up to three apartments with sizes varying between 60 and 125 m². The apartments can be combined. The tower and the adjacent six-storey office building were completed in 2008.
