Herzog & de Meuron. Five courtyards. Munich

The renovation of this block, in the heart of Munich, is a work of composing in-fills and voids in which that already existing is submitted to the new order, based on the use of the entire ground floor as retail space.

A series of passageways links up with the surrounding streets, each one having a distinct character. In the project several studios took part, within the general urban concept designed by H&dM.

Photos taken by a+t, available under request.

Herzog & de Meuron
Five courtyards
Theatinerstrasse, 13
Munich 2003



Facade on Salvatorstrasse


Salvatorpassage is the main axis of the block




Suspended frame from which the plant pots rest


Pavement of pressed stone slabs, with printed photos by Thomas Ruff


The system of imprinted concrete or pressed stone has been used by H&dM on several occasions (see a+t 14 sensitive materials)


Viscardihoh, with the office units openings on the upper storeys




Portiahof, where the same facade design as that used in Theatinerstrasse appears




The outer skin is similar to that used in the rue des Suisses project in Paris, folded aluminium sheet, precursor to the copper skin of the de Young Museum in San Francisco (see post November 10, 2009)
