The winner project has been announced for the construction project which is soon to take place on the banks of the ‘Kaufhauskanal’ at the inland port of Harburg, a suburb of Hamburg. In cooperation with the Berlin landscape architects Topotek1 the Danish architects from BIG have planned a residential development which will create 80 housing units in this former industrial area of the city.

“The typology for the overall plan for the Kaufhauskanal Metrozone is designed as a series of new “Kaufhaus Hybrids””. The scheme is meant to accommodate the existing quarter so that all the new buildings slope downwards and outwards to meet the heights of the existing buildings. The roofs are angled and inclined to maximize views to the sky and at the same time minimize the noise from the surrounding streets, roads and railway.”
