Office right at the sea: a 1000 sqm office space in the heart of the beautiful Hamburg Speicherstadt district. It doesn’t get more Hamburg than that.
In the beginning, the office space was still in it’s in raw condition. Besides bare walls and dust there was little to see of the great location. This not so appealing look demanded a great deal of imagination from future tenants, which made it difficult to rent out the space.
The estate manager of Mr. F. Spratte of Dundee International contacted me to change that. What could have been an assignment for a standard office space, turned into a very beautiful project. Mr. Spratte desired to bring the atmosphere of the harbor and warehouse district into the interior. At the same time the potential of the spaces had to be displayed.
In the implementation, we have combined raw materials with clean design furniture. With small areas of space, each demonstrating a possible use in an abstract fashion, we structured the large empty area. The precious carpet which runs through the object as a straight line, serves as a visional mark.
For example a lounge was created from just a few elements:
A podium with a rough beam construction decorated with finds from shipping and storage, plus a few Swanchairs.
Elsewhere, a suggested work situation with office furniture, boxes and color charts replace an expensive furniture and still gives an idea of how these spaces would look like furnished.
After two viewings, the office space was already rented.
