Location: Munich, Germany
The maisonette apartment covered the lower and ground level of a 1930 mid terrace house in Bogenhausen, Munich. When our client decided to move back into it after the last tenancy ran out the apartment was in dire need of refurbishment and modernisation. The brief was to reinstate the original character and to add some glamour and elegance. The building is listed but many of the original features had been removed.
Our approach was sensible and with attention to detail. We spent time developing a beautiful interior, refurbishing the original built-in furniture and designing new pieces. Originally the main reception and living spaces were situated at the rear with a view to the lovely garden. We re-established this layout while inventing a home office area and guest rooms in the front. In addition we chose natural materials and pale colours for the walls that boldly contrasted with the rich oak parquet. This made spaces brighter and full of light.
