DRDH makes it to final seven for Hamburg

Up-and-coming London practice DRDH Architects has been shortlisted alongside six other young firms to design a residential scheme in Hamburg, Germany.

The office will face competition from Love Architecture of Austria, Onix, from Holland, and four Hamburg practices.

The seven will battle it out to design a scheme for the city's Dalmannkai Quarter, the home of several other residential projects by names such as David Chipperfield and Philippe Stark.

The site is adjacent to the new Elb-Philharmonie at the Kaispeicher - a Warehouse, which is being redeveloped by Herzog & de Meuron.

Unusually for a competition, the seven shortlisted offices have been invited to Hamburg at the end of October for a three-day design workshop, where they will exchange ideas before further working up their final submissions.

'The key on this project will be to ensure that our scheme does not become part of an area which is in danger of becoming an architectural zoo,' DRDH's David Howarth said.
