A new Chilehaus is certainly not in the pipe for now, but hopefully it will stand at the end of this current wave of a modern interpretation of old school Brick-Expressionism

Its only a concept for now, but where else should it be taken into consideration if not for a project in Hamburg ;)

Involved Architects:
ACME , Rund2 and Knippers-Helbig
This existing five-level department store in the centre of Hamburg is located on one of the busiest shopping streets which links the central railway station with the city’s main square. Built in the early 1960s, the existing store is an example of postwar modernist department stores in Germany, with its typical façade of small ceramic modules forming the outer façade layer which has now reached the end of its lifespan. The proposed new façade is inspired by the city’s century-old brick tradition in general and in particular by the adjacent 1930s-era Kontorhäuser, built in the style known as Brick Expressionism. The façade plays with three-dimensional large-scale surfaces, lending the building a sculptural quality, as one’s perception varies according to distance and location. Different types of brick bonds are used to generate differentiated degrees of perforation and transparency, allowing the building to receive natural light during the day and to glow at night. Using advances in building technology, the façade is designed to be a self-stabilising 25m-tall brick wall with a façade depth of one standard 9cm brick. The prefabricated glued contruction makes sole use of the standard brick format and will be assembled offsite by robots controlled by computer scripting. This will enable the façade to be extremely economical and sustainable – keeping the use of materials to an absolute minimum, reducing embodied energy and minimising construction energy and wastage.

Absolutely love all of these! If that last project gets done, it might just as well become a classic the day it is opened.
I don't know why, but I like the violet-ish color of Waterlofts the most, but Stadthaushotel has the best design overall. I wish we got more of that and less of boring glass boxes.

Its unlikely to happen at this project since the 1960ies facade of the Electronic-Department-Store enjoys monument conservation

But thats not to bad at all. I don't want this new brick-facade realised there. The buildings directly south of it are about to get demolished - here the four domino-blocks at the right hand side of the picture


Those domino blocks boarder the Kontorhausviertel -

and the new building would face the Chilehaus but in a respectful distance -


Maybe the perfect location for such an experiment

Mario Botta should do something there, he used bricks to build some nice things (imo). It would be interesting to see what he would do there.

Anyway, brick is fantastic for those details and variations it allows.
