Hamburg would like more Wilhelminian-style architecture

In a recent online survey carried out by the Hamburger Abendblatt newspaper 91% of Hamburg citizens polled, would like more new buildings in the city to be in the traditional Wilhelminian style of the late 19th century. The Hamburger Abendblatt cited FRANKONIA Eurobau’s Sophienterrassen as a modern example of this kind of Hanseatic architecture.

Frankonia is developing a new city quarter directly on Harvestehuder Weg on the banks of the Alster lake, which includes the Alster Villas with uninterrupted views of the lake, townhouses and Sophienpalais. It is not only the architecture that is reminiscent of the outstanding building quality of the Wilhelminian period. Highly specialised craftsmen – masters of their trade – painstakingly build every detail and element of the quarter by hand, whether it is the wrought iron balustrades, the individually crafted stone staircase or the interior design of the exclusive apartments.
