CF Møller wins two contracts in Germany

Danish architect CF Møller has won two contracts in Germany, one for a train station in Altona, Hamburg, the other for a campus masterplan for the University Hospital of Heidelberg.

The station in Hamburg will aim to link "nature and city life", according to the firm. The design contains three primary elements:

  • The Altona North station, which will come with cafes, restaurants, shops and gymns
  • Two towers, which will house a hotel and office spaces
  • A roofscape to will bind the two together

Other architects shortlisted in the competition included UNStudio, MVRDV and Schmidt/Hammer/Lassen.

Mads Mandrup Hansen, CF Møller partner, said: "We are really proud that our design has been selected. The project will be a beacon in the future development of the Diebsteich quarter.

"Our vision is to connect the station, city quarter, hotel and office building with a distinctive green profile, which reflects the green focus of Hamburg."
