The perspectives here looking up and down the River Elbe are simply one of a kind – with Hamburg’s landmarks and city centre to the east, the “Köhlbrandbrücke” bridge to the south, and Elbe Estuary, port and Elbe Beach to the west. The outlook makes this an utterly unique property high above the rooftops of Hamburg.
Thanks to the vast interior space on offer, Antonio Citterio was able to divide up the floor plan into living and sleeping quarters, planning the layout with generous dimensions set over the entire horizontal projection of the “Kristall” building.
The living quarters impress here with the sheer space on offer, as well as the light-flooded interior concept. The bedrooms meanwhile are inspired by hotel suites, with en suite bathrooms. Set over 70 m² encompassing half of the eastern wing, the master bedroom boasts a walk-in dressing area, a large bathroom and a spa area, as well as a sensational outlook that overlooks the entire city centre. The adjoining dining area, the Bulthaup kitchen fitted with Gaggenau appliances, and the southwest-facing loggia form suitably elegant finishing touches to the east tower.
The west wing of the property hosts a welcoming living area with a second loggia and two more en suite bathrooms for family or guests. The design of the floor plan means that this wonderfully spacious apartment could be divided up and used separately, as the concept was originally envisaged for two apartment units.
