Germany’s first wooden high-rise, the “Wildspitze,” is being designed by Störmer Murphy and Partners. At 18 stories and 64 meters high, this residential tower will be one of Europe’s largest urban development projects.
Located in Elbbrücken, a peninsula neighborhood within Hamburg‘s HafenCity, Wildspitze will add 189 residential units on its riverside site. Each apartment will feature a loggia behind a double glassfacade.
In addition to residences, Wildspitze will house the two-level German Wild Animal Foundation exhibit space. The exhibit will be a 2,200 square meter, multi-media experience. “Augmented reality,” and a nature film cinema will help visitors understand more about German wildlife.
Sustainability is a priority. Developer, Garbe Immobilien-Projekte GmbH, will use primarily raw, renewable materials, to reduce energy consumption and carbon dioxide emissions during construction. Prefabrication and short construction time will help achieve these sustainability goals.
