This centrally-located building complex in the St. Vincent quarter of Neuhausen has a mix of residential and office units. This new build is designed to be high-quality, sustainable and cost-effective, setting a new trend for wood frame construction in the urban context. As one of the first of its kind in Munich, this complex enhances the perimeter block with its timber-concrete composite construction.
The timber-clad façade, which is featured on the buildings facing Gabrielen Strasse as well as Rupprecht Strasse, is a logical expression of our hybrid construction method and uses different colors and textures to distinguish between the offices and apartments behind them. Façade greening with integrated planters underscores the development’s commitment to sustainability and enhances the streetscape. The solid plinth and horizontal banding are in dialogue with the neighboring architecture from the Wilhelminian Era. There is ample space for several rooftop terraces thanks to the staggered rooflines and extensive landscaping on all of the flat roofs. The elevated corner unit creates a network of tectonic elements in the neighborhood, while also drawing attention to this new urban landmark. Additional space for networking in the community sense is found in the all-day café on the ground floor that houses a kiosk and a co-working space.
