Bridging the Gap

Bridging the Gap

The project tackles the permeability of the site as the existing infrastructure network together with the bodies of water currently form a restrictive collar, segregating the site from the surrounding areas. The project suggests a pedestrian link over the railway connecting through high rise towers to bridge the gap between Veddel and HafenCity, as well as the Olympic waterfront park. Utilising the existing dormant dock as a focal point and amenity location, the project proposes a social hub equipped with cafes, restaurants, bars and outdoor terraces.
