Empire Riverside Hotel in Hamburg
The hotel complex consists of three different staggered volumes: the 20-story hotel tower, the L-shaped base of the hotel and the Brauhaus, a retail and office building. Situated on the former Bavaria brewery grounds, the 74-meter-high hotel tower rises above the city, creating a new visual landmark in Hamburg’s skyline. The three structures convey the transition between the different areas of the city. The hotel building is divided into a publicly accessible and a private area. The public area with conference rooms, a restaurant, a breakfast room, a ballroom and a lounge positioned around a four-storey high reception lobby is in the low-rise section. A public bar on the 20th floor offers panoramic views of the city. The 17 floors in the high-rise section constitute the private area.
