Infrastructure and innovation, trade and port, research and growth – all of these factors define the Hamburg metro region. The Inner Alster Lake has always been at the heart of this vibrant economic centre.
Its shore has traditionally been fringed by large enterprises with resonant names. Some refer to the blue centre of the Hanseatic city as the “Wallstreet of Hamburg.” The area is also home to upscale high-street retailers. Thus, the place is characterised by the proverbial Hanseatic business acumen like no other part of town. In other words, a special place that calls for special architecture: Alstertor 21.
The 10-storey office building is dominated by classic materials such as glass, natural stone and copper. These interact with a state-of-the-art language of form. The attic floor of glass and patinated copper serves as eye-catcher and connecting link between the period buildings in the neighbourhood. It houses the glassed-in conference area – which is automatically shuttered with copper blinds after dark.
This way, the building accomplishes the seemingly impossible: While blending harmoniously with its historic setting in Hamburg’s financial district, it manages to stand out.
But the brightly day-lit office building also meets high-end expectations in terms of interior decoration. The rooms benefit from a unique lighting concept. The sophisticated system of slats on the roof provide the optimal amount of light and shade. The occupiers of the top floors have an incomparable view across the Inner Alster Lake.
CAT7 cabling, concrete core cooling, flexible room partitions, modern safety engineering including emergency power supply, passenger lifts and an underground car park are part of the standard fit-out. The interaction of design and technology create a place that is both representative and inspirational.

This makes the office accommodation highly sought. Buildings here are meant to impress. And yet Altertor 21 stands out in a special way. Few other buildings combine modern forms and classic materials in such an elegant way.
The office accommodation of around 4,500 sqm spreads across eight floors. The ground floor is taken up by retail units – that attract both the employees of the local companies and pedestrians from the high footfall locations downtown and from the lakeside promenades.
