MVRDV with co-architects morePlatz have won a competition to design the masterplan of the Hamburg Innovation Port, a new 70,000 square meter waterfront development that will add to the high-tech hub of Channel Hamburg in Hanse City, Hamburg. The plan for the mixed-use development uses a fusion of existing port typologies and dynamic architectural interventions to create a network of buildings containing hotels, laboratories, research facilities, offices for start-ups and a conference center.

Located on the site of the old Harburger Schloss waterways, the planned development has been organized around a system of alleys between the street and harbor basin. A three-story plinth containing a variety of public spaces borrows from the harbor typology, and in a later phase, will connect to surrounding buildings via a series of skybridges. On top of the plinth, increasingly glazed facades provide light and views to laboratories, and higher up, flexible office spaces. In the building’s center, special program volumes will contain restaurants, cafeterias and libraries.

On the building roofs, occupiable green spaces have been arranged to create a park-like atmosphere linked by the skybridges, while arrays of solar cells will help provide energy to the complex. The interiors of the bridges feature flexible space that can be adapted to create large office areas. Parking, meanwhile, has been placed underground and out of sight, and is accessible through one communal entrance.

Most of the complex will be ground-up construction, but one existing hall on site will be transformed to be used for temporary activities and to support construction of future phases. An additional floating building accessible via a jetty with contain a hotel.

“Part of the plan is the idea of a diverse public space in which each part has its own strong character,” explain the architects in a press release. “There is a park, a boulevard, a square, shared spaces and a waterside promenade featuring wide stairs towards the water that invite the office workers to have outside meetings and al fresco luncheons.”

“At Hamburg Innovation Port we envision a very high density to create a vibrant neighbourhood and to make the best use of this fantastic location at the waterside, a former cattle food factory site,” says MVRDV founding partner Jacob van Rijs. “The density is FAR3.3, comparable to a typical Berlin city block with its courtyards and outhouses, but designed in a way to offer daylight and vistas.”

The plan is designed to be built in stages with the flexibility for possible program changes as the construction progresses. This will allow each of the five buildings to be realized independently.

The competition was organized by Hamburg construction company HC Hageman. Hadi Teherani Architects have also been selected to build one of the architectural projects. The total budget for the project is estimated at 150 million euros.
