Atlantic House, in Hamburg’s St. Pauli district, has been a part of the new skyline between the Reeperbahn and Landungsbrücken since 2003 and now offers a spectacular view over the harbour from the conference level of its 19th floor, where almost 100 m² of lounge space is today waiting for spontaneous meetings and evening events to be etched into its memory.
Visitors to MAKK will get an inside look at key moments in Diez’s development processes of furniture, luminaires and accessories. Spanning 15 years, the exhibit showcases international award-winning projects as well as ongoing projects like the Guise luminaire for Vibia and the D1 and D2 chairs for Wagner.
In the café, a muted palette of sea-greens and blues is punctuated by dyed Italian veneer and solid brass inlay, applied throughout the space by master craftsmen. Above, a sea of aquamarine balloons lower the ceiling, creating an intimate space for guests to relax, reflect, and re-energize away from the cacophonic surroundings.
The space is split into a variety of areas – a reception, waiting area, sales and meeting rooms, an area for sampling and selecting materials, a world of living and a bathroom exhibition. Dirk Hollweg’s design is based on visual perception hierarchies: bright-dark contrasts or graduations in brightness establish a sense of drama, specifically emphasise individual areas in the space and enable these to visually come to the foreground.
The Campus Restaurant caters to three different user groups: It is designed as an attractive restaurant and bar location for hotel guests and visitors, while also serving as a canteen for staff. The restaurant extends upwards over two storeys. The entrance from the lobby is set within a large glass wall, which stretches from floor to ceiling and makes an inviting gesture.
“This is the apartment of Allard Pierson, an abstract artist who doesn’t exhibit his sculptures because nobody’s interested in abstract art anymore, so he lives at home with them and occasionally invites people to dinner, to show them his new work,” Morrison said. The presentation features a living room split up into a studio and office.
The aim of the project was to create an inspiring platform with an open and communicative space in order for WFP to host a vast diversity of projects and initiatives. The open space concept balances the requirements of the projects as well as the needs of the people for more spaces and spots designed for work in concentration and silence.
