Text description provided by the architects.

The building site is situated at the intersection between theHamburg’s lively downtown and its urban landscape rich in water and mature trees.
It is at the transition from city to nature, and the gateway building to the bustling metropolitan core.The horizontal striped facade with its floating ‘eyes’ celebrates the view onto this unique context.

A public park in front of the building continues the design strategy of the facade into the landscape.
The ‘eyes’ in the facade and the platforms in the park form places to meet and contemplate.The office spaces serve both a generic spatial layout and specific moments related to the ‘eyes’.

Large spans provide for various office layout configurations in combination with balconies and climatically tempered outdoor spaces of the ‘eyes’.The office building ‘An der Alster 1’ links interior and exterior spaces to the public park in front of the building and to the city context of Hamburg, becoming a new anchor at the prestigious Aussenalster waterfront..
