The new construction of this residential and commercial building is an important gesture in Munich’s up-and-coming neighbourhood Westend. The bulding, with its bright red façade occupies a prominent urban location on a busy street. The building replaces five old buildings whose conservation was no longer economical. Seven stores, a common room and 23 apartments of different sizes were created. 17 apartments with loggias and six maisonette apartments with double story spaces and roof terraces. The load carrying structure of the house is reduced to exterior walls and stairway cores. The entire interior construction consisting of lightweight walls allows for adjustment according to the resident and coming changes in the housing market. The house is fully wheelchair accessible.
