BDA Award for the Hamburg Süd Headquarters

The administrative center of Reederei Hamburg Süd has been awarded BDA Hamburg’s 2018 architecture prize. The heritage high-rise by Prof. Cäsar Pinnau dating from the 1960s was completely renovated and has had a new seven-story office extension plus a two-story underground parking garage added to it. The renovation project included, amongst other things, improving energy efficiency and replacing the façades. Awarded only every three years, the BDA award is of particular importance to us. At its meeting in May this year and after several tours, the jury awarded three first prizes, five second prizes and another nine third prizes from the total of 89 entries submitted. The other first prizes are nothing to be sneezed at either – Herzog & de Meuron’s Elbphilharmonie and the Gebr. Heinemann HQ by gmp. >>> further information

Siemens’ Campus Erlangen holding a topping-out ceremony

Siemens’ new Campus Erlangen is taking shape. At what is currently northern Bavaria’s biggest building site, Siemens AG is holding a topping-out ceremony for the first module, together with representatives of the city, the developer, Siemens Real Estate, and the construction company. The complex comprises not only eight office buildings but also three parking garages and a bicycle parking garage. Some 7,000 employees will be working here, spread over an area of more than 100,000 m². The buildings will be occupied gradually as of mid-2020. Then the second module will follow, with the new and prestigious reception building for the Siemens Campus. An entirely new urban district is being constructed in the south of the city of Erlangen, on a land area of some 54 hectares. The new campus with office, research and laboratory workplaces, along with hospitality and service businesses, will open out onto the city, interlinking the company with its surroundings. The design by KSP Jürgen Engel Architekten, which won first prize at the architecture competition in 2015, combines the preservation of a number of existing Siemens heritage buildings with a great many new buildings. As well as being responsible for the masterplan, KSP Jürgen Engel Architekten was also commissioned with the general planning of the construction work for modules 1 and 2.

Gold FIABCI Prix d’Excellence real estate award for UPPER WEST

<xml> </xml> The UPPER WEST high-rise in Berlin has won the Gold FIABCI Prix d’Excellence real estate award. At 119 meters in height, this hybrid high-rise located next to Berlin’s Gedächtniskirche is one of the German capital’s tallest buildings. With its impressive height and its elegant lines, the 34-story UPPER WEST erected for Strabag Real Estate GmbH marks the beginning of the Kurfürstendamm on Breitscheidplatz. Together with its neighboring high-rise Zoofenster, the tower forms a gateway and a landmark visible from afar. Its uses are manifold – offices, a Motel One, a sky bar and retail units. The architecture by LANGHOF® and KSP Jürgen Engel Architekten allows for all units to have their own unique address thanks to separate lobbies. Along with prizewinner UPPER WEST in the commerce section, the upTOWNHOUSES in Hamburg received an award in the residential section, with the jury commending not only the successful overall concept which comprised architecture, logistics and economic viability, but also aspects such as sustainability and integration into urban planning. The competition was organized by BFW Bundesverband Freier Immobilien- und Wohnungsunternehmen and FIABCI. >>> to the project
