Karlstrasse 47Back to Projects list
- Munich, Germany
This six-story office building stands on a triangular lot in Munich’s central Maxvorstadt district. Independent yet integrative, it is a solitary structure that fits flawlessly with its surroundings. In echoing the unusual shape of the site, it is a singular structure with three facades fluidly joined by rounded corners. Two important sight lines – one running northwest from the center, the other northeast – are emphasized by the new building. Light-colored stucco and big windows that wrap around the curves of the building, make for an elegant and striking facade. The ground floor offers a large open space with direct street access for retail or restaurant use. The structure is clearly divided into core and shell, allowing the office spaces on the upper floors to be freely subdivided. The top two stories are stepped back and can also be rented as spacious loft apartments.
