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 whiteinterior 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.
