New London Architecture

PianoBau HafenCity

Proposed

Fletcher Priest won an invited competition of seven international architects for a mixed-use building on site 84b of the ambitious HafenCity masterplan in Hamburg.
Fletcher Priest won an invited competition involving seven practices on site 84b
at HafenCity Hamburg for a mixed-use building for Patrizia Deutschland GMBH.
PianoBau was commended for its striking yet simple black and white aesthetic.
It comprises 120 rental, co-living and affordable apartments, co-working space,
neighbourhood shops, a restaurant, and a piano-bar on the dockside walkway.
The design achieves HafenCity’s high sustainability/ environmental ambitions.
Particular attention to detail was applied for enhanced residential and
commercial design value. Working remotely from London during COVID-19, our
bi-lingual team alongside our local partners co-ordinated this technical design
to stage 5 of the HOAI.

Resilient London: confronting climate change

PianoBau forms part of the wider redevelopment of the former HafenCity dockyard site. Embodying the principles of the 15-minute city and divided into four interconnected blocks, the mixed tenure scheme contains market-rent apartments, co-housing units and affordable flats, while the ground floors provide retail, co-working and hospitality uses. The building also includes facilities for shared 
e-mobility, a district heating system using residual heat from a nearby copper processing plant, solar panels on green roofs, and landscaped courtyard spaces to increase biodiversity.
