DESCRIPTION
 
The hotel complex is situated in the newly developed Schmidt Hammer Lassen Schwabinger Tor Hotel Municharea, along the northern part of the Leopoldstraβe. The challenge in the competition was to bring the architectural characteristics of Munich into this new and modern part of the city. schmidt hammer lassen architects’ design concept has its origin in three themes: the analysis of the historical city with its arches, vaults and arcades; a close relation to the masterplan with its boulevards, plazas and narrow streets; and a focus on human beings as well as the overall experience offered to the hotel guests.

Schmidt Hammer Lassen Schwabinger Tor Hotel Munich“The arcade motif is well known in Munich and emphasizes the passage from a public plaza to the more private urban spaces. The arcade creates a semi-public space where people can sit and observe the urban life. We want to integrate this architectural feature into the ground floor level of the hotel,” says partner at schmidt hammer lassen architects Kim Holst Jensen.

North and south of the building complex, two new urban plazas form natural entry points to the hotel and the conference centre. The entrances are accentuated in the building design by two impressive, golden vaults. “For the hotel guests and the passers-by these very unique spaces offer a feeling of being part of something special. The vaults are fascinating, spacious and luxurious,” says Kim Holst Jensen.

The hotel rooms have been designed to become one-of-a-kind. By integrating large and luxurious bathrooms – as a kind of private spa-rooms – with daylight and visual connection to the outside greenery, the atmosphere in the hotel rooms becomes relaxing and impressive. According to Kim Holst Jensen, the use of daylight is a general theme throughout the building complex. It offers the hotel guests a unique experience and sets a whole new standard for high-end hotels in general.

The building facades with their poetic rhythm of vertical lamella and the open ground floor level add something to the urban spaces of the city. With reference to the Scandinavian architectural tradition of working with daylight, transparency and simplicity schmidt hammer lassen architects has created an outstanding and expressive building complex. The classic values are combined with a modern design and the result is a unique and exclusive hotel with its very own style.
