This project relies on precise construction measures to renovate, expand and upgrade a listed historic townhouse in the heart of Munich’s Old Town that was built in 1834.
This dormer loft conversion creates a residential unit with a bright, spacious mezzanine level. Due to building preservation laws, the construction and structural framework of the original 1912 dormer loft must be taken into account in the reconfiguration of the floorplan. The design was able to reuse most of the roof timbers dating back to even before 1912. In addition to inserting eight new dormer windows in the roof plane, a recessed balcony was added at the back of the building. The renovation of the stairwell and the addition of an external elevator improve accessibility for the entire house. In consultation with historic preservation authorities, all skirting boards, skirting tiles and floor tiles were restored and/or renewed. Repair of the plaster and stucco façade, in some cases quite extensive, as well as the use of pre-weathered titanium zinc sheets on cornices, window sills and jutties round out the renovation works.
