At Unilever's corporate headquarters, you can stroll through the building and experience sustainable architecture.


The house was developed as one of the first buildings in HafenCity. It floats like a cloud in front of the banks of the Elbe. A foil wraps the building, gives it protection from wind and weather and at the same time provides ventilation for the interior. Together with the neighbouring Marco Polo Tower, the building lies on an urban line of sight that leads from the town hall to the water edge. The building is crowned by a green roof measuring over 2,000 square metres, which provides additional protection against cold and heat. In summer, bees and other insects enjoy the green oasis. In 2009, the Unilever House won the World Architecture Festival Award for the best office building.

Ice licking, coffee drinking and spa magic in the Artrium

The spectacular architecture is continued in the interior. Glass walls also provide transparency here and give an impression of the working environment of the large corporation. The Artrium invites you to stroll around. Coffee and ice cream invite you to linger and the spa provides pampering.

Tango dancing in front of the river Elbe

In summer, the promenade in front of the building is transformed into a place to go for tango lovers. On Sundays Argentine guitar sounds are heard regularly and the dancing leg is swung in front of the Elbe. The event is free of charge.
