Fernbahnhof Hamburg-Altona Outdoor Spaces Design

C.F. Møller Architects has been chosen to design the urban spaces that surrounds the new train station in Hamburg-Altona, Germany, which is also designed by C.F. Møller Architects.

Three teams were invited to compete for the public spaces surrounding the new long distance trains in Hamburg-Altona and C.F. Møller Architects has now been announced as the winner. The win follows a previous win with the proposal for the new train station itself and ensures a perfect relation between buildings and landscape which C.F. Møller is renowned for.

“We are very pleased with this win since integrated design, where we see landscape and buildings as a united whole, is such a big part of our DNA. We are looking forward to continuing our collaboration with the client team Procom and Haspa PeB, as well as Deutsche Bahn and the City of Hamburg.” says Julian Weyer, partner and architect at C.F. Møller Architects.

Green and connected urban space

The outdoor areas and front plaza of the new station are an important part of the placemaking strategy of the large-scale neighbourhood transformation, and offer the chance to reconnect and strengthen urban and green areas formerly separated by infrastructure.

The urban spaces tie in seamlessly with the station’s inner passages, and creates visible address points for the major new facilities that make up the station complex: A hotel tower, office tower, retail units and gastronomy. At the same time, the front plaza become a pivotal point in the wider area regeneration including a concert hall, sports stadium, creative workplaces and housing.

Biodiversity and stormwater handling

The design is primarily shaped by the intense flows in and around the station, combined with sustainability features such as a strengthened local biodiversity, integrated stormwater handling on and under the surfaces, and priority for cyclists and pedestrians. Dense and varied tree plantings that provide splashes of colour changing with the seasons structure the simple and continuous plaza “floor”, and contain pockets for sitting, dining and local community events such as markets and concerts. The topography of the site is turned into an advantage, combining full accessibility with sitting steps and discreet zoning.

“The design finds exactly the right answer for the multi-layered environment at Diebsteich. The balancing act between recreational space and transit space is solved brilliantly: many trees, many benches and a lot of freedom of movement for people. A nice idea is to bring vibrancy and colour into the cityscape through diverse tree species.” says Franz-Josef Höing, Chief Building Director at the city of hamburg.
