HFBK studio house in Hamburg completed
The long-needed extension to the Hamburg University of Fine Arts HFBK was realised by Winking · Froh Architekten after winning the competition in 2017 and completed in January 2022. The studio building was created as a free-standing cube next to the main building by Fritz Schumacher from 1913. The clinker facade covers the cube like a buoyant fabric. In their layering, the diagonally cut window reveals arranged in opposite directions create an image rich in tension. The handover of the studio building to the users will also mark the opening of the annual exhibition for 2022.
