The design is based on the theme "all aboard!”, caused on the exposed and widely visible position of the new hotel building and the quay facilities. They anchor like a cargo ship at the harbor in Hamburg-Harburg. The focus of the newly designed waterfront promenade, and the quay is the use of authentic materials utilized within the former industrial port. Materials like raw wood planks, concrete and used natural stone pavement. This radical authenticity is the guarantee for this specific atmospheric. Gentle grass plantations that seem to grow out of the over-sized pavement joints contrast the pre-industrial materiality and accompany visitors into the now.
