First documented in 1521, the residential and office building at the southwest end of the Viktualienmarkt is a typical relict on the mediaeval plot structure of the old centre of Munich.
The new part of the building is intended to distinguish itself from the existing building fabric by its modern form language, thus creating a new city component. A successful symbiosis in which the new ‘Schiffmacherhaus’ fits into the ensemble with restraint but also with a certain grandeur.
This building project – the addition of two further storeys – is an upgrading in terms of heritage protection for the building and its usage on the one hand and for the urban space situation on the other.
