SPIEGEL Publishing House, Hamburg, Germany

Modern media building: light and transparent, this striking building made of steel, glass and concrete rises from the Ericusspitze in Hamburg’s new HafenCity. The new SPIEGEL headquarters unites print, online, TV and digital media under one roof for the very first time. Inside, the perfect combination of Hanseatic reserve and Scandinavian nonchalance. The building’s atrium is as high as the building itself and, with its bridges and staircases, provides plenty of room for both communication and concentration. A symbol of transparency in times of multimedia communication and networking.
