Opera storage Hamburg State Opera

Hamburg, Germany, 2018

The new building houses the storage rooms and workshops of the Hamburg State Opera, which had previously been spread over three sites.
The opera storage is divided into several functional areas which require different supporting structures. The use of the construction materials concrete and timber allowed to merge the buildings into one mixed-use design. The floor slabs and foundation structures of all buildings were economically constructed in concrete. In the area of the repertoire fundus, which allows small spans, a column-concrete slab construction was established, which is stiffened over the walls. The workshops and the large storage building were unified under a long framework structure.
In spite of difficult conditions for the foundation and at the same time strict stiffness requirements of the buildings, the compact and dense design allows for optimal use of space. Refinements in proportion and shape give the mixed-use design an unique character creating a high recognition value.
