Building of the Year

Hamburg 12/2015
The former coffee exchange and new home of the AMERON Hotel Speicherstadt Hamburg was nominated Building of the Year after its restoration and remake that were implemented with much love for detail. A jury of twelve experts from the Architecture and Engineering Society of Hamburg elects the winners of the much desired award.

“And now this gem, accurate in every detail to the original by Werner Kallmorgen, stands before us again – not as a museum-like place of pilgrimage for a few enthusiasts like me, but as a mundane and simple room for hotel guests with a unique genuine atmosphere.” Mathias Hein, freelance architect in Hamburg, Bauwerk des Jahres AIV Hamburg
