ST. PAULI Exposed high above the "Landungsbrücken", a new high density city quarter has been built on the former site of the Bavaria Brewery. Within the masterplan of BRT different architects realised a new high rise hotel and two office towers which together form a new city crown in the silhouette to be seen from the river. Apartment buildings enliven the area at night as well. North of the site the "Spielbudenplatz", the central space of the Reeperbahn, has been redesigned as a flexible event space. It also forms the forecourt of the "Tanzende Türme" (the dancing towers), two office towers which prominently mark the beginning of Hamburg's entertainment district as well as the change the area is undergoing.

Architecture designed by BRT, Coido, David Chipperfield, Jörg Friedrich, Thomas Herzog, KSP Engel Zimmermann, Steidle + Partners.

KONTORHAUSVIERTEL AND CHILEHAUS Planned by Fritz Höger and built 1922-24, the "Chilehaus" is certainly the most extraordinary historical example of Hamburg's brick architecture. It is located in the southern part of the city centre. Together with other commercial buildings it forms an impressive quarter of big scale urban brick blocks which in the beginning of the 20th century replaced the narrow "Gängeviertel" (mews district).

HOUSING ESTATES IN THE NORTH EAST OF HAMBURG - In Barmbek the historical pioneers of the co-operative housing estate culture such as Dulsberg and Jarrestadt can be found. This tradition in housing development was initiated by Fritz Schumacher and is still followed and referred to in many contemporary developments in Hamburg, especially in the North East of the city. Successful interpretations are for example the estate Buchenkamp which continues the idea of cooperative housing. " 3 Höfe" offers new neighbourhood life around three courtyards in a compact setting and vacant former hospital sites form the basis for the new estates "Quartier 21" and "Parkquartier Friedrichsberg". Also existing postwar estates are significantly improved by renovation, refurbishment and extension. Attention is paid in these projects as well to sustainable building, smart energie concepts and living concepts for different interest groups (more generation living etc.)
