Kickstarting the Revitalization of the Domachse

Hamburg, DE

On March 5, the first steps were taken in the revitalization of the Hamburg Domachse area. The city began installing over 100 flower pots with flowering trees and green plants to integrate with the surrounding built environment. West 8 was tasked with designing a compelling temporary installation that will guide people along the axis and creating a more engaging, green public space where people feel free to linger and enjoy their surroundings. 

The planters frame the public space along a central axis and will be complemented by new benches and playground equipment in the square behind the St. Petri Church and on St. Annenplatz Square. This new space will create a more inviting area for people to come and spend time together. 

The temporary installation will be completed by the time the shopping mall Westfield Überseequartier opens on the 25th of April and will be in place for the next three years. The installation is intended to kickstart the transformation of the street in the future.
