Jenfelder Au awarded for Excellence by IBA Hamburg

On the 31st of October over 60 exemplary projects, valued at more than one billion euros, were recognized by the IBA. West 8 was awarded a Certificate of Excellence by IBA Hamburg for their work on Jenfelder Au.

According to the IBA “the concept of the project meets the criteria of excellence established by the international building exhibition, IBA Hamburg and is characterized by outstanding quality, innovation and sustainability.”

Meanwhile, the development of the first phase of Jenfelder Au continues to progress smoothly. The central pond area is currently under construction and will act as a water retention basin, with all rainwater flowing into this central pond area via a romantic water cascade.

The ponds are the first step to defining the public realm within this 29 ha site, which will become a complete new quarter for sustainable living and working over the next few years.
