Montblanc Haus, Hamburg

Nieto Sobejano Arquitectos 

On the outskirts of Hamburg, in the Altona borough, this exhibition building dedicated to the art of writing offers a voyage through the history of pens manufatured by the firm Montblanc, founded in 1906. The outcome of a competition held in 2016, the design of Fuensanta Nieto and Enrique Sobejano drew inspiration from the cases of writing instruments. Rising close to the old Montblanc factory and respecting the scale of the surroundings, the linear construction stretches 100 meters along the width of the plot. The main facade of of black texturized concrete evokes the massif that gives the company its name. Inside, three levels are organized around a unique foyer lit from above. The spatious outdoor area is marked by a green hill that protects the building from wheeled traffic.
