Astra Turm, Hamburg

Astra Turm, Hamburg

The 18-story office tower stands on the former site of the Bavaria brewery in the St. Pauli district of Hamburg and is divided into a pedestal, shaft, and crown. The building’s rounded corners and the rhythmic alternation between surrounding balustrades and slightly projecting strips of windows emphasize the elegant shape of the tower. A striking roof crowns the 19,000-square-meter standalone.
