Built with St. Pauli

St. Pauli in Hamburg is a district with strong contrasts: sex shops along the Reeperbahn, occupied houses in Hafenstrasse, music clubs, expensive starred restaurants, and Turkish cafés are typical of the neighbourhood. It is a thoroughly lively district, which is particularly popular with young people. The “Built with St. Pauli” office building stands as an “urban shelf”, reflecting the surrounding cityscape. Shared facilities such as meeting rooms, kitchenettes, a library, a showroom etc. create a miniature version of St. Pauli in vertical form in the facade.

Behind this, a modern office environment unfolds in triple-loaded form, with the space between the two corridors taken up by service functions. The 18 m wide and 120 m long block functions as an intermediary between heterogeneous large buildings – the Rindermarkthalle, the stadium, the Bunker air raid shelter – to the east of the site and the small-scale buildings to the west.
The facade is a transition zone because the building is bordered by two busy roads, to the south and west. The second building layer in front of the main building serves as a shield to protect the building from the noise of the roads, and also acts as a thermal buffer during the hot summer months. Conservatories and double facades create buffer zones for the internal climate. Terraces, staircases and planting provide shade.
