German studio PARAT designed the Hypermarché Hafencity in Hamburg.

Hypermarché is the attempt to attract young locals (like us) to Hafencity Hamburg. Because Hafencity is a special place in Hamburg. It is an impersonal developing area. On weekdays there are just businessmen, at the weekend the promenades are full of tourists.
