This project won the IBA competition, focused on the transformation of ‘interior outskirts’ spread out on the islands of the Elbe river. In this context, the reconversion of harbour grounds in south Hamburg creates the context for the introduction of 15 volumes adapted to the scale of their surroundings in the original plot. The buildings, which hold a mix of housing, business and offices, are laid out to create a network of small public spaces integrated into the fabric of existing free spaces. The project explores the volumetry of traditional harbour warehouses, sculpting it according to conditions regarding noise, sunlight and views. The resulting formalisation determines typological variations of the housing units.
