This construction is absolutely striking thanks to its completely futuristic style with spacious and open spaces in which every detail is done with a unique modernism in mind. It’s one of those designs that definitely draw a reaction from the spectator.
This glass structure is built on the base of an old warehouse and rises 37 meters above ground, offering its visitors magnificent panoramic views of Hamburg, the German city where it is located. It was officially inaugurated on January of 2017 after nine and a half years of construction.It was designed by the architectural firm Herzog & de Meuron and it is located on the banks of the Elbe River.
The scheme’s centerpiece is a 2,100-seat arena positioned at a height of 50 meters, which makes it really imposing to look at.
The structure also boasts on-site restaurants, cafes, bars, and a hotel which is now open to the public.
Its walls have been coated with highly dense and extremely heavy engineered gypsum fiberboard panels that reflect sound.
Its interior is really impressive, with transparent, wavy glass walls, wide stairs that take us from one level to another, ceilings full of lights that reflect throughout the space, and an open terrace. Every detail adds up and gives a spectacular result.
