The Campustower apartment block is currently under construction on Baakenhafen dock, the largest and most easterly of Hafencity’s harbour basins. Directly overlooking the water, the structure, which took first prize in a 2014 design competition, forms an ensemble with the adjacent Delugan Meissl office tower. With a gross floor area of some 9,400m², the 8-storey new build will comprise 40 privately owned and 24 low rent apartments for 2 to 4 people.
The southern face features floor-to-ceiling windows and glassed-in balconies whose glazed parapets accentuate the lightness of the bright, maritime façade. A combination of strongly marked and more understated separating elements together with the discreet projections and recesses of the façade create a striking meander effect. Each apartment has its own balcony, supplemented in the case of the 7th-floor penthouses by roof terraces. On the northern side of the building lies a landscaped courtyard space. A two-storey basement garage connects the new building with the existing office tower next door. The building is expected to achieve Hafencity Hamburg’s Gold environmental standard.
