Landau & Kindlbacher



Competition Housing Development, Lipperheidestrasse, Obermenzing

On the basis of the urban development competition and the resulting building development plan, the size and arrangement of the buildings varies: the three-storey blocks are restricted in length and end with four-storey end buildings on the west side (the "Grünanger"). The slightly rotated position of the end buildings thereby accommodates the city's intention of a more casual arrangement of the buildings. Between the building plots and on the west side of them, this results in a playfully attractive perspective. To the east, quite clear reference is made to the existing houses. The proportional scale of the buildings with their strongly structured cubature harmonises naturally with the surrounding development. The arrangement of the buildings and the alternating access from north and south give rise to numerous entrance situations that guarantee an unambiguous address for residents and visitors. The layouts of the flats are functional, easy to furnish, and well planned for flexible usage. A large number of apartment types were developed, covering a wide range of prospective tenants. Every flat has a generously sized free space allocated to the living area. Invited competition of a private developer Task 199 flats, 100% barrier-free, of which 10 are suitable for wheelchairs Area: ca. 14,200 sq. m. living area, Mixed flat types with 1 to 4.5-room flats, size: ca. 30-120 sq. m.

Completion Residential complex in Munich Bogenhausen

Old Bogenhausen has always been considered as Munich’s best residential area. The quarter is particularly characterised by representative villas and residences and is interspersed by a large number of green spaces. The new residential complex will consist of a three-storey standalone building with ground floor, upper storey and penthouse, plus a basement with an underground garage. In the design of the apartments, the architects have paid great attention to generous floor plans, providing for one flat per storey. The largest possible open spaces in the form of terraces, balconies and loggias enhance the living quality. Living Space: 775 m2, 3 living units Date of completion: 2017[more]

Completion New Office Design Signa Zürich

The “Hochhaus zur Bastei”, designed by the famous Zurich architect Werner Stücheli and completed in 1955, is considered as the first high-rise building in the city of Zurich. Situated directly on the “Schwanzengraben”, the tower block sets an urban development accent and a “gateway” to the city. As an example of high architectural quality, the “Hochhaus zur Bastei” was placed under a preservation order a few years ago. For the Swiss branch of the Signa Holding, the interior design for the new office concept was developed in consideration of the preservation of historical monuments. Elegance and generous proportions, together with an unusual and high-quality material mix and accentuated lighting, distinguish the office areas and conference zones in a total of about 1000 sq. m. on four floors. The furniture and fittings were mostly designed and individually installed on site by Landau + Kindelbacher. With regard to the architectural quality of the Bastei tower and the representative demands of the customer, a special material combination of black marble (polished Nero Marquina), brass, carbon and glass was chosen for the floors, walls and ceilings. As a reminiscence of the architecture of the 1950s, the classical materials are newly interpreted in their use, colourfulness and gloss value. Like a passe-partout, the resulting spatial effect frames the view and allows the low room heights of the existing building to retreat into the background.In contrast to the black space continuum are the high-gloss furniture (highly polished brass) and the golden lighting channels. A speciality is the floor pattern with the brass seams as a visible, high-quality separation. The subject of ‘seams’ is mirrored again and again in the whole design – from the integration of direct and indirect lighting in the cooling ceiling to the special furniture.

Project presentation: residential complex in Friedrichstrasse

Schwabing has always been a popular residential district whose old building structure – particularly from the time when it was an art nouveau artists’ quarter – was its special charm. The decorative façades with their fine ornaments and floral motifs, plus the generously sized studio windows in the attics and in the studio buildings hidden away in the courtyards, so popular at the end of the 19th century, characterise the streets of Schwabing. The construction of this residential complex as a city block of high-quality design is the start of activities in Friedrichstrasse. With its classical division into a base storey in natural stone and a finely punctuated façade with several floor-to-ceiling studio windows, the building offers high-quality living space and at the same time isolates the city building situation with a block perimeter development. In scale, materiality and façade structure, the new building is perfectly integrated in the area of tension between the Wilhelminian-style buildings of the area and the neighbouring functional, glass-and-balcony façade from the early 1950s by Sep Ruf, and nevertheless has a striking corner effect. The flat roof with a stepped-level storey was deliberately chosen as a reference to Ruf’s design. But as a bridge to the modern era, the decorative findings from the art nouveau era in the form of ornaments were taken up in the plaster façade and the design of the balustrades. A central representative entrance hall with two lifts continues the outstanding ensemble into the interior. In addition to the representative new building at the corner of Friedrichstrasse and Franz-Joseph-Strasse, a modern patio house in the rear courtyard completes the ensemble. Just as in the typical Schwabing district blocks, a generously planted inner courtyard is the core of the development, while Habsburger Platz and Leopold Park offer recreation within walking distance. The particular location in the heart of Schwabing provides different space qualities and perspectives – towards the listed ensembles and historical monuments of the surrounding area and up into the treetops of the nearby green spaces. Precise details and the use of contemporary materials characterise the modern interpretation of the Schwabing block. Client: Legat Living Living space: 70 residential units, 1- to 5-room flats from 22 to 149 sq. m. Penthouses and a town house from 233 to 427 sq. m. 2-level underground garage with 73 parking spaces Building start: 2018 Date of completion: End of 2019 [more]
