Coffee & Showroom – Hamburg

Coffee & Showroom Hafencity
Area 100 m²

In the very heart of Hamburg´s largest development area the task is turning a conventional double height commercial space into a local hotspot that is perceived on a rather city-wide scale. In close working relation with the client a concept is being developed that fuses a coffee shop anchored in the very neighborhood with multifunctional exhibition spaces. Elementary to the idea of a simple but highly flexible space is the central positioning of the bar and the construction of a wall that serves as a huge display and stretches from the front to the back of the building. By using the entire given height as well as by incorporating the service area of the bar the wall sets up a sequence of different spaces with very individual qualities. Doing this the potential of the space as a whole is never jeopardized and always allows for an individually scaled spacial exploitation of any kind.
