By 2020, the listed office building will be renovated and brought up to the current state of the art. In addition to these renovations, the interior will also be reconstructed to form a new working environment, an office structure adapted to today’s needs and requirements.
The representative commercial and office building in Ottostrasse in Munich has been the property of the Bavarian notary account ever since the construction of the six- to seven-storey building complex in 1951 by the architect Emil Freymuth. The block, situated in an important urban corner location, is characterised by prominent balconies and a flat roof, which protrudes on slender supports. As an office building of the first post-war modernist era, characterised by the grid-like façade, the particular value of the building can be attributed to the natural stone façade of limestone from Marching (a town in Lower Bavaria) and the relief of the artist Louis Robert Lippl over the main entrance, despite material shortages and a reduction of funding.
The challenge will be to preserve the key elements and create a contemporary reinterpretation of the office spaces for the benefit of contemporary workplace concepts.
