New York-based architecture firm Hollwich Kushner continues planning Die Macherei, its first European project. The effort is a mixed-use business district based in Munich, Germany.
HWKN, reports Inhabitat, collaborated with German firms msm meyer schmitz-morkramer and OSA Ochs Schmidhuber Architekten to design the new financial hub that will bring together offices, retail and hospitality spaces.
Art-Invest Real Estate and Accumulata Immobilien developed the new business district, which will total 64,000 square meters (15 acres) of rental space. Out of the six new buildings, HWKN designed the hotel and two adjacent office buildings on the eastern quarter of the site.
The hotel will feature an elevated bar with a series of outdoor terraces that offer views of the surrounding mountains. The office building will accommodate a two-story gym, while the third building will guide pedestrians toward the public plaza, which will function as the heart of the development.
“Designed not just as a series of buildings but as an exploration of the spaces between the buildings, Die Macherei is an innovative design for a new way of working and interacting, integrating social activity and behaviors to promote a sense of community,” Matthias Hollwich said.
