PROF. CARSTEN ROTH LECTURE ARCHITECT@WORK HAMBURG TRADE FAIR HALLS

19. Juni 2019

“When I design facades plastically, then I interlock thus making the gap much stronger with the buildings and their inner life. On the other hand, the open space often ends abruptly and finally on a smoothly cut façade. But for me, there is not really an indoor or outdoor space, but there is only one big space continuum that runs through the whole world and is filled with light.”

In his lecture, Prof. Carsten Roth will explain his architectural credo based on projects developed throughout Europe with unique façade solutions.

ÜBERSEEQUARTIER SOUTH – DEEP VIEWS!

20. July 2018

The facade construction offers good visibility for all apartments and ensures optimal noise protection. A bar with five floors completes the space inside the U-shaped building to the south. In this way, adequate privacy is created in the open quarters, especially through the green roof landscapes with partly private roof terraces, loggias and balconies.

The construction of the building with around 310 apartments on a gross floor area of approximately 31,500 square meters started in the spring of 2018.

Today, the oversized excavation pit for the entire district, cut by the subway station “Überseequartier” that is already used. Now initially around 300,000 cubic meters of soil are being moved.

With a total area of 209,500 m², Überseequartier is the largest inner-city project in Europe. There will be around 90,000 m² of retail and leisure space, 50,000 m² of offices and 30,000 m² for 3 hotels.

TOPPING-OUT CEREMONY FOR A VILLA WITH A VIEW OF THE ELBE

10. July 2018

The topping-out ceremony for the villa of a hamburger couple was celebrated in the most beautiful weather with a view of the Elbe. In the immediate vicinity of the former Villa Jako (once fashion czar Karl Lagerfeld) is created until the beginning of 2019 a villa with a view of the Elbe. The architecture with its precise and distinctive roof construction and an open light room inside, which opens from the basement to the roof, blends in elegantly with its brick façade. The views of the Sülberg and the Elbe are varied arranged, the light and its reflections are captured inside the house through narrow opening and large windows.

CARSTEN ROTH ARCHITEKT PLANT DAS ERSTE SOS-KINDERDORF IM HAMBURGER STADTGEBIET

28. March 2018

The SOS KINDERDORF will support children and families in the future with even more space and offers – the construction of the "Port for Families" on Straßburger Platz in Hamburg Dulsberg has been initiated.

CARSTEN ROTH ARCHITEKT is planning the new building, where from 2020 onwards both children's village families will find a new home and the Hamburgers will find another place of encounter, education and support.
On a plot of approx. 1,000 m2, a new family center is being planned in addition to apartments for children's Dorff families. This public area includes a family café, a children's clothing store and several classrooms.

The apartments of the SOS Kinderdorf families will be located at the rear of the "Port for Families". The building fits in along Straßburger Platz and Weißenburger Straße.

Weiterlesen

The building itself is divided into three parts: The three upper floors in the northern part of the building and the four upper floors opposite the church end at the height of the neighboring residential buildings. So that the landmark of the church of the Good News Dulsberg, the church tower, can function in its function as the visual axis and reference point of the Dulsberg-Residents, the connecting structure in the middle is single-storey.
The varying facade of the building scales according to its use. The façade side facing the church is covered with plants over two storeys. The façade itself is a terracotta façade made of baked clay that picks up the brick color of the nearby buildings. On the ground floor of the main entrance facing Straßburger Straße, the building offers more space for a large family café and several course rooms.

A PIECE OF HAMBURG IN BERLIN

27.March 2013

The area between Berlin Central Station, Northern Harbour and Hamburger Bahnhof gets reinforcements:  Along Heidestrasse an office, residential and gallery building. The jury, chaired by Regine Leibinger awarded the following prizes:

First Price: Carsten Roth Architekt, Hamburg

Second Price: Baumschlager Eberle, Lochau / Berlin

Second Price: Sauerbruch Hutton, Berlin

Third Price: Brandlhuber +, Berlin

Carsten Roth convinced the jury with a striking and sculptural building whose outline levels are arranged mutually twisted. According to the jury the facets of the architectural sculpture follow “prosaic considerations” because the floor plan levels are based on the environment. The ground floor adopts the property form, the three office levels are determined from the buildings of the neighborhood, and the two residential floors follow the flight of the channel.
The ground floor area was rated as achieved: This is designed to be particularly generous with movable partitions and allows various uses (from Baunetz).
