Paulaner Headquarter Munich Building
The still existent substance of the listed Zacherl brewery consists of the exterior façades up to the central buttress, the gate hall – thought to have been influenced by Leo von Klenze – and the cellar vaults.

House V in Munich
House V is a large house on a small plot of land and an even smaller budget. On the outside it is very red and on the inside very raw. The house is well insulated and includes a geothermal pump and air-handling system minimising operation and maintenance costs. House V is not specifically an “Environmental” house but rather just simple and smart.

Ben van Berkel: “In the design for the facade of the building we chose for an articulated sobriety, incorporating contrasting scales of detail. The horizontal bands which wrap and organise the building present a sober articulation from a distance, however as you get closer to the building you discover a refined scale of intricate, complex detailing.”

Lenbachhaus Museum
The Museum’s historic buildings have been restored and the exhibition spaces augmented by a new wing. The 1972 extension has been removed to reveal the wall of the original villa. As well as radically improving the buildings’ environmental performance, the remodelling has created a new entrance, restaurant, terrace, education facilities and a full-height atrium. The project improves circulation and allows access for all.

Allianz Arena
Dramatic, exciting, and iconic architecture enhances and amplifies everyone’s experience. In the modern world, where image is critical, it can also significantly increase the brand values of a stadium and its sporting team. Modern stadia have become complex and sophisticated buildings, providing a range of facilities for spectators, the media, participants, and operators.
