23.05.17 Deutscher Architekturpreis 2017
The Harbour Masters Building Ensemble has been commended at this years Deutscher Architekturpreis.
BOLLES+WILSON originally won the 2006 competition for the HarbourCity quarter with an unexpected idea: a freestanding Campanile amid the urban landscape. This spectacular tower – as the jury put it – integrates perfectly in the surroundings and creates a stage for the historic Harbour Masters Building.
The whole ensemble – consisting of the Cinnamon Tower (residential, 2015), Harbour Masters Building (converted hotel, 2016) and the Info Pavilion for the Überseequartier (2009) – has recently been completed and brings a vivd urban plaza to the mega blocks of the HarbourCity.
The Deutscher Architekturpreis is presended by the Federal Institute for Research on Building, Urban Affairs and Spatial Development.
