An der Alster 1
The new office complex by J. Mayer H. Architects sits on the edge of downtown Hamburg, bordering the Aussenalster waterfront.
Horizonal window bays form protruding oval-shaped “eyes” that intermittently protrude from the facade, peering over the public park below. A pure white interior reflects the abundant daylight pouring in from all sides, making the space largely shadowless. Open floor plans and spare furnishings meet the increasingly common desire for flexible workspace.
