The project is based on the brief from the idea competition “Hamburg Hybrid Housing Competition” presented by CTRL+Space in 2015, that deals with the combination of a high density building and the existing urban environment in St. Pauli, Hamburg. The scope of the project is to create different types of housing units that can attract both elderly, couples, couples with children and students. Furthermore, different types of commercial spaces, such as shops, entertainment and offices will be included to ensure that the project will adapt to the surrounding urban fabric and bring life into the site.
Within the project, environmental and social sustainable parameters will be included, by combining these parameters with both urbanity and living a highly holistic design solution will be achieved. To deal with the challenge, the initial program investigates the three terms of sustainability, urbanity and living as a method for thinking hybrid architecture.
The proposed design solution deals with the notions of public and private and how the building can position itself in this field, going from the public nature of the urban environment to the privacy of home.
