Quartier Elbbrücken


  • “Long Lines” mark the site.
  • Elbbrücken quarter marks the apex of Hafencity Hamburg.
  • An outer ring of buildings performs as noise barrier.
  • Housing blocks are located at the Harbour Bassin.
  • Every building has a view connection to the water.
  • A public space networks marks the area.

Hafencity Hamburg is the largest urban development area in the north of Germany. Elbbrückenquartier thereby forms the apex. Marked by heavy noise emissions – from both the harbor and the bridges – special requirements to protect the housing and public spaces must be taken. On the other hand, the proposal provides ample opportunities to interact with the water.
