Description:

Based on historical river baths, “Flussbad” as well as traditional Islamic baths, “Hamam” and within the conversion of Hamburg’s harbour area, we propose a harbor bath on a former wharf site on the Elbe River. The aim is to revitalise the industrial harbor for the citizens of Hamburg. Terminating a large green strip through the harbour, the project provokes a new urban process of continuity; connecting the port and the, “Wilhelmsburg” quarter across the river and back to the inner city.

The building is woven into this new landscape. Approaching from a sea bridge the visitor reaches a lawn and open air bathing ships. A theatrical stair guides the visitor to the main plaza. Here, one can choose to visit the machine hall containing the water filtration and a cafe or enter the tower to reach the Hamam or a multi-purpose space.

The Bath in the sub-level is a mix of the two main historical typologies – the Roman bath and the Islamic Hamam. The Roman bath is referenced by the large flooded central space. The visitors are guided through the surrounding arcade to the changing rooms, relaxing areas and classic Hamam chambers.

The main goal for our project was to create a new identity for this post-industrial area and make statement for a symbiosis of the public city and the non-public harbor. For optimum success the project could be realised in steps, starting with the most flexible spaces to the waterfront.
