Text description provided by the architects. In the Hafen City of Hamburg, the largest transformation of a historical port in Europe, the Brooktorkai 22 building combines residential, commercial and office functions at a favorable location, in two separate volumes that share a glazed ground floor which contains a restaurant, a bar and the separate entrance lobbies for the offices and the apartments.

The residential units are in the tower building, offering fine views of the future open space of the LohsePark. Each apartment has a loggia; to further increase the comfort of the rooms facing the recently constructed urban fabric, the windows are fitted with sound-absorbing panels, to permit opening of the windows without reducing the soundproofing effects obtained when they are closed. The living areas have views of the water and the future linear park. On the upper level, two penthouses with terraces enjoy a panoramic view of the whole city.

The two portions of the project face the city with two autonomous facades, joined by the glazed ribbon of the ground floor and the chromatic coordination of the facing materials, which convey an elegant, welcoming image. The severe look of the tall residential volume, with its large sheets of sandstone in an irregular pattern, and the dark reddish clinker of the horizontal facade of the office building have the shared feature of the bronze-tone sections of the windows and glazings.

The upper level of the office building is made lighter by the continuous glazing that echoes, with the vertical pacing of its sections, the alignment of the windows of the other floors and the glazed ground floor, facing the Brooktorkai, where a portico turns onto the Poggenmühle and joins the two volumes, then terminating under the residential tower.
