      Gastwerk Hotel Hamburg

      Seasoned hotelier Kai Hollmann turned Hamburg's 19th-century municipal gasworks into Europe's first loft-style hotel, instantly transforming the red-brick industrial complex into a one-of-a-kind hotel. Natural light floods the atrium lobby through two enormous arched windows and a glass roof. A gigantic, green industrial machine and an old tower clock serve as reminders of the building's days as a power station. When visiting Mangold, the in-house restaurant, guests will enjoy a creative cuisine composed of the freshest ingredients from around the globe. The Moroccan-influenced Gastwerk spa offers a sauna, steam bath, massages, beauty treatments, yoga, and pilates. Neutral light and soothing textures soften the rough industrial structure, giving its once purely functional form new life.

      Klaus Peter Lange

      Given that Gastwerk’s redbrick shell and a monstrous green industrial machine from the building’s bygone days as a power station were both under a strict preservation order, a sensitive conversion to a hotel was required of Hamburg architect Klaus Peter Lange. Rising to the occasion, he integrated the green monstrosity into the design of the 600 square meter atrium lobby, in which a bridge leading to the guestrooms is suspended overhead. Natural light bathes the atrium and gold leaf adorns the front desk, above which an old tower clock has stopped telling time. Sheer curtains on either side point the way to the bar and restaurant or to the ten conference rooms, which cater not only to guests but to grateful local professionals who regularly migrate to this one-of-a-kind hotel.

      Interior Design

      Regine Schwethelm & Sibylle von Heyden

      Designers Regine Schwethelm and Sibylle von Heyden set about contrasting the building’s rough edges with soothing textures, slick and simple furniture, and touches of Asia. Finest walnut wood trimmings, tall casement windows, and unmasked concrete walls, garnish lofts and suites, while propeller-headed ceiling fans pay homage to the many mechanical devices once whirring away in the power-station.
