Haus Königswiese in Old Bogenhausen, Munich
Bad Brunnthal – a name that exists only as a street name today – used to be a popular destination with its spa and sanatorium, particularly in the Biedermeier era. Today, this location on the green banks of the Isar is ideal for a break from the hustle and bustle of the city. This is namely the location of the classically designed housing development, consisting of an L-shaped main building and a town house.
The ensemble in its building volume and design presents a restrained link between the neighbouring development and the bordering green spaces of Maximilian Park. The floor areas of the upper storeys decrease upwards as far as the recessed penthouse with its surrounding roof terrace. This allows room for generously sized terraces, and simultaneously the main building gains in formal lightness through the staggering graduation. On the ground floor, a communal area complements the private gardens.
The new construction meets all requirements of modern living. With an airy ambience, long visual axes and large, sun-drenched areas, this character effectively comes into play. The connection to the exterior is created by the floor-to-ceiling windows and the numerous balconies, loggias and partly surrounding terraces. Outstandingly unusual geometric façade details such as the horizontal bossage structures on the ground floor, refined window surrounds in the upper floors and elaborately worked metal railings give the façade a particular optical charm.
The town house continues the architectural language of the main building while emphasising other features: the details of the façade design are more reduced and the design language concentrates on strong, horizontal accents.
