kempertrautmann.haus is located in the heart of Hamburg, close to the prestigious Jungfernstieg quarter and the Inner Alster Lake. The nine-storey building accommodates offices and shops on a prime site that had stood vacant for years. It thus fills a gap in the inner city's business and shopping heartland. The developers have created a transparent building that affords fine views of the Alster Lake from its upper floors. The offices are open-plan, allowing the flexible positioning of desks and workstations appropriate to the communicative character of advertising work. The reflections off the movable glass walls create the impression of space.
