If Kontore, with its mix of business and warehouse space, was the answer to the Hanseatic working world at the turn of the century, then Domkontor provides a contemporary equivalent. The building is an intelligent combination of old and new, an adaptation of historic office space to the requirements of modern office and retail environments.
D10 IN DETAIL
The mix of two classic, listed facades and the modern glass front sets the framework for seven floors of modern offices and retail space – a total of 6,300 sqm. Plenty of natural light, sound and sun protection provide the setting for a pleasant working atmosphere – and anyone stepping out onto the approx. 200 sqm roof terrace on the 7th floor will find themselves in the spectacular company of a magnificent view of the Domplatz.
All roads lead to the destination
The Domkontor on the Domplatz topographically connects not only history and the future, but also, due to its location, the city center, and the port. Returning Hamburg to the Elbe is a motif of current urban development, but due to the excellent connections by subway, bus and individual transport, all routes from Domplatz lead quickly to all destinations in the Hamburg metropolitan area.
The Catholic heritage
The Domplatz is Hamburg’s primeval land. This is where the Catholic bishops celebrated mass in the Mariendom until Martin Luther arrived – and Hamburg’s citizens quickly embraced the Reformation. The extraterritorial cathedral grounds in the heart of the city were a thorn in the side of the Protestant councillors. After Napoléon had transferred the cathedral to the city in 1806, nothing stood in the way of its demolition – and the neighboring tower of the Protestant St. Peter’s Church henceforth had sole air sovereignty.
