Caruso St John has won an invited competition for the new headquarters of publishing house Gruner+Jahr which will be built in Lohsepark in Hamburg’s Hafen City. The 60 000 m² of accommodation is organised around three courtyards. The main entrance is through the first of these courts, which is covered and gathers together the public and social spaces of the building. The ground floor accommodates places to eat, television studios and co-working spaces, as well as a contemporary art space for the city.

The stepped volume of the building is clad in specially made glazed terracotta. Continue reading Caruso St John

The hexagonal layout of the buildings and the façades of galvanized sheet steel give the three multi-family dwellings a striking appearance on a site bounded by mature trees. The three or four-storey dwellings comprise a total of 41 apartments. Continue reading baumschlager eberle
