THE NEW GATEWAY TO MUNICH

The future is starting right here, right now: Bavaria Towers, Munich’s most forward-looking real-estate development, looks set to redefine the east of the city and create a striking new gateway to the Bogenhausen district. Ideally located, the building ensemble is comprised of four spectacular high-rises with inclined roofs and gently curved forms, which make a striking addition to the Munich skyline. The mix of three office towers and a hotel offer the perfect environment for discerning companies looking for stunning architecture, premium fixtures and fittings, and a high-end look and feel – with a first-rate infrastructure to boot.

Covering a total area of approx. 23,000 square metres, the plot is the property of Bogenhausener Tor Immobilien GmbH, jointly owned by the Von der Heyden Group and an institutional investor. The Munich-based development company Bayern Projekt GmbH is tasked with project development and representing the interests of the owners.

INNOVATIVE DESIGN

Bavaria Towers makes an architectural statement that will be felt far beyond the city where it is located. In and of themselves, each of the four towers is a design triumph: featuring a pentaganol floor plan, a slightly inclined mono-pitch roof, and a two-storey base building with a layout extending beyond that of the structure above. Together, they form a harmonious ensemble; a striking landmark that truly is one of a kind. A central plaza between the towers is home to a selection of eateries, attractive green spaces and water features – drawing tenants to this outdoor space and inviting them to stay a while.

NEW HORIZONS IN MUNICH

With its soft, flowing lines and transparent facades, the ensemble creates a striking impression from all angles. By keeping the slightly inclined mono-pitch roofs free of any additional structures, the seamless continuity of the innovative design language is maintained. The architectural concept aims to counterbalance the complexity of the structures through recurring elements and variations on a theme. The pentagon is a shape often found in nature – in the formation of mineral crystals, for example. Intelligent elongation of selected sides of the floor plan maintains the basic pentagonal shape throughout while allowing visual proportions to vary, creating a unique architectural gem.

NIETO SOBEJANO ARQUITECTOS

Few international architects have made a name for themselves as quickly as Fuensanta Nieto and Enrique Sobejano. With offices in Madrid and Berlin, the star duo from Spain already have an impressive portfolio of renowned international projects under their belt – from museums in their home country to plans for entire city districts in China. Their Munich office is currently working on the renovation of the Königshof Hotel. Many of the couple’s award-winning designs aim to integrate contemporary architecture into complex urban contexts. Bavaria Towers will be another fine example: the striking silhouette of the ensemble will beat a new path, while still slotting seamlessly into its surroundings. The towers’ organic shapes and striking façades represent the very best modern design has to offer, creating a welcome exception to the everyday monotony of conventional utilitarian architecture.
