The ‘Veddel Gateway’ is a response to the current migrant crisis in Europe. The ambition of this project was to create a place that accommodates refugees from the moment they first enter Hamburg, providing emergency measures, and then helps them settle and integrate into existing communities. This requires the creation of suitable residential capacity in the city, with Veddel being one approriate location.
With adjustments to the street pattern and improved accessibility Veddel can accommodate additional development comfortably, development which sensitively integrates into the established local neighbourhood.
The proposal includes new residential blocks, a ferry terminal, retail spaces and cultural buildings. These are all connected by a new strengthened pedestrian route that guides people from the north of the site to the south.
