Altstädter Strasse 3-7 in Hamburg (rear of Steinstrasse 5-7)
The Bartholomayhaus is part of the Kontorhouse district in the heart of the city of Hamburg located right next to the world wide known historic „Speicherstadt“, an assembly of storage buildings for coffee, teas and spices next to the Elbe river. The city of Hamburg applies for these districts to be listed in the UNESCO world heritage site.
With this pretension the historic façade will be kept with the old awning to be reconstructed and attached to the facade. In addition, new windows will be embedded in the facade, meeting all new technical requirements, but adopting the form and shape of the historic windows.
The reconstructed building will consist of two single shops in the ground floor and two office floors in the upper floors.
The new multi storey car park garage in the inner courtyard contains the original number of parking spaces, but is, compared to the existing one, reduced in its external dimension. The reduction enables day light and natural ventilation of the ground- and intermediate floors of the surrounding main building. A complete green roof improves the sustainability with retaining rain water, providing a more pleasant visual optic and a better local climate for the offices aligned towards the inner courtyard.
