HAMBURG | Elbe Philharmonic Hall (Elphi) | 110m | T/O

The Elbphilharmonie (Elbe Philharmonic Hall) includes 2 concert halls, a 5-star-hotel and appartments on top of an old warehouse from 1961 (Kaispeicher A). The construction has already begun, at the moment the warehouse is cored.
completion: 2010 / architects: Herzog & de Meuron / cost: 322 million €

In the guise of the Elbe Philharmonic Hall, Hamburg is acquiring a new and impressive concert house, one that seems destined to house one of the world's ten best concert halls. This should be an outstanding location for performing classical music as well as jazz, world music and pop music. The Elbe Philharmonic Hall will become a new landmark for the city and, at the same time, a place for everyone. The new building complex will comprise two concert halls, an hotel with an international conference area, apartments, a plaza at a height of 37 meters, a wellness area, a nightclub and a large number of parking spaces in the Warehouse (quayside warehouse). The complex was based on designs by renowned Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron.




The new building is a resplendent glass body, whose surface is formed differently in certain sections. The single-shell glass facade thus shows the three internal uses of the building. In the hotel, the air vents become wave-like hatches, while the balconies of the apartments, horseshoe-shaped recesses in the glass, guarantee spectacular views, protection from the wind and lateral ventilation of the connecting rooms all at once. The concert auditorium, which faces inwards, shimmers with its amber-coloured foyer through the glass wall. A grid of white dots will also be printed on the facade to provide protection from the sun. The density of the grid will be individually calculated, with the aid of a computer, so that each room has appropriate protection depending on its function.


The Elbe Philharmonic Hall aims to be one of the best concert auditoriums in the world. It will be an outstanding venue for classical music, as well as jazz, world music and Pop. The large concert auditorium, with approx. 2,150 seats, will take pride of place in the Elbe Philharmonic Hall. It does not follow the orthogonal concept of a so-called shoebox stage. The orchestra and conductor are situated in the centre and the audience seating sections rise up in interlocking irregular terraces to form a steep-sided cauldron. Light is reflected from the bright surfaces. The reflector in the sharply pointed ceiling is a striking feature. It ensures outstanding acoustics and is also part of the lighting system.


In addition to the three concert halls, the Plaza also forms the heart of the Elbe Philharmonic Hall. It will resemble a market place where concert-goers and casual passers-by, residents of Hamburg and tourists can meet. The outdoor terraces offer a unique panorama with views of the city centre to the North, HafenCity to the East, and the Elbe and the harbour to the South and West. There is hardly anywhere else in Hamburg where the relationship between the city and the harbour can be seen in such an impressive way. The interior of the Plaza is dominated by the curved ceiling with its varying geometrical shape. It affords spectacular views of the city and the harbour. Deep recesses are cut into the building above the Plaza, offering varied views between the Plaza and the different levels of the foyer. On the Plaza itself, there are a number of restaurants and bars, and also the entrances to the hotel lobby and the residential complex. Sculptural staircases lead to the foyers of the Philharmonic Hall.


Visitors can reach the foyer of the large concert auditorium by passing through the staircase sculpture below the auditorium. The foyer spreads out upwards to the facades and leads the visitor further and further into an unmistakable architectural landscape. A sweeping three-storey staircase leads up from the Plaza to the level of the small auditorium, which is a completely separate area with its own infrastructure.


The Elbe Philharmonic Hall will be more than just a concert hall – it will form an entire residential and cultural complex. In the West, the residential section towers up to as high as 110 meters above the Elbe. The apartments offer impressive views out over the city and the port, and have a separate entrance. Plans foresee a hotel with conference facilities on the East side – in at least the 5-star category. The spectacular highpoint: a stroll in the wavy roof area. The hotel rooms offer a view out over HafenCity, the largest downtown urban development in Europe. The plaza is a freely accessible zone 37 meters above the ground. It is positioned like a radiant joint between Warehouse and the new building. The idea: to create a new meeting point for all Hamburg residents and the city’s visitors. The Warehouse itself will primarily be used as a carpark for some 570 vehicles. Next to it there will be high-end uses, an education area, additional backstage, wellness facilities and hospitality.

The Elbe Philharmonic Hall will occupy a historically important spot. Sandtor harbour, at the tip of which the Elbe Philharmonic will be built, is Hamburg’s first industrial dock. The landmark of the harbour, the “Kaiserspeicher” with its ball clock, stood there until it was destroyed in the Second World War. Every ship that entered Hamburg harbour headed towards it. Yet as much as the place is steeped in history, it remained unknown for many years. Ever since Speicherstadt and HafenCity were excluded from the free port, people have started rediscovering this prominent part of the city. In the West, the Elbe Philharmonic extends into the Elbe, as a hinge between the city and the harbour. The Elbe Philharmonic Hall also has a central function for HafenCity. With the “Internationales Maritimes Museum Hamburg” and cultural establishments planned for the Überseequartier, it will be the cultural heart of HafenCity and contribute to the further regeneration of this inner city urban development area, the largest in Europe.

The old building wasn't bad as it was... but this is indeed a great transformation and it will definitely become a landmark.
