With an exhibition centre featuring nature and wildlife themes, Hamburg gains a significant venue that will generate enthusiasm for nature and diversity and raise awareness for the preservation of both. The HafenCity makes a significant contribution to a lively urban development by adding a new tourist attraction. The project presents the current state-of-the-art timber construction - the use of the material is carried out with the latest know-how in structural engineering, sound and fire protection and a healthy interior climate is achieved. The lower and ground floors, staircases and elevator shafts will be a reinforced concrete construction, all upper floors will have solid timber floors and interior walls. With the use of timber as a building material, a high level of prefabrication reduces time and raises the quality of the construction. A second façade made of glass ensures the fire, UV und moisture protection of the timber and protects the loggias from wind and weather.
