haascookzemmrich STUDIO2050 won the 3rd prize in the international competition for the conversion of the former Holsten Area in the city of Hamburg - Altona. The new district Holstenareal in Hamburg is the missing link in the development of Altona. Our focus is on creating attractive streets, lanes and paths. The Holsten Plaza around the Julius Tower becomes the central district square at the end of the new park with the conveniently located hotel, grocery market, cafe, micro brewery, trade and craftsman's workshop. A second district square built with a Boccia field, children’s playground, cafes and stored is proposed as well. The new district center is connected to the proposed urban center through a “green” lane with rich vegetation.
