As the headquarters of the world’s largest producer of consumer goods, Unilever’s old offices in a highrise building on Dammtorwall simply weren’t cutting it anymore. Since 2009, the company has made its home in HafenCity. Unilever-Haus houses 1,100 employees, as well as the flagship store of the personal care brand Dove. Nearby, visitors will also find the Marco Polo Tower, the Traditionsschiffhafen (lit. 'traditional ship harbour'), the Störtebeker monument and the Elbphilharmonie.
Designed by a team from Stuttgart, the futuristic Unilever-Haus is a model of sustainable architecture, and has received several awards, including the ‘World Architecture Festival Award 2009’. The inviting, freely accessible atrium features, among other things, a company shop, an ice cream parlour (much sought after by HafenCity visitors during the summer months), and a stunning view of the Elbe and the Hamburg port. The Unilever-Haus also boasts a conference centre, the Elbkantine dining hall and an event kitchen, all of which can be rented.
