Your stylish new home in Germany's tallest wooden high-rise
ROOTS in Hamburg’s HafenCity exemplifies the highest standards in residential design, using 5,500 cubic meters of renewable softwood to create a graceful, 18-storey, 64-meter building. Never before has so much wood been used anywhere in the world to construct a single residential high-rise. ROOTS is Germany’s tallest wooden high-rise building, home to 128 exclusive condominium apartments that satisfy the overwhelming desire of many city dwellers for a more sustainable way of life. The unique timber construction not only contributes to reducing the building’s CO2 footprint, it also reduces noise and creates an added feeling of warmth and closeness to nature. Sheltered behind movable exterior glazing, each floor features stunning loggias and wraparound galleries, extending the interior living space into the outdoors and offering sweeping views of the Elbe River and HafenCity. The stunning glass facade also serves to protect the building from the elements and external noise. ROOTS embodies an attitude to life at the heart of us all: a yearning for nature and authenticity, freedom and quality, warmth and a feeling of security.
