The design of the new Fern- und Regionalbahnhof Hamburg Altona will turn a busy railway station in northern Germany into a vibrant urban transport hub with an eclectic mix of functions for travellers and local residents alike. The project will play an important role in the development of the district of Hamburg Altona, and will face the challenge of embracing a variety of needs with a single, visionary concept. The full scope of the project includes the redevelopment of the old train station, and the addition of parking facilities, a fitness centre, shops, cafés, office space, and a 216-room hotel with a sky-bar, rooftop garden, and restaurant.
