GERMANY: An exciting new flagship property for the redeveloped Werksviertel quarter – a 24-storey hotel tower featuring 234 studios and apartments – is under construction on the site of a former potato silo in Munich. On completion, it will be the highest hotel in the city, an architectural milestone, a striking landmark and a multifunctional building in the heart of the Central Haidhausen neighbourhood.
The composition of the WERK4 building is already unprecedented. The existing potato silo building - a part of the old Pfanni potato dumpling plant - is integrated into the overall design and the new building on top of the silo will be over 86 metres high. The multifunctional utilisation concept of WERK4 is typical for the whole redevelopment area, Werksviertel, however the combination of a four-star hotel built on top of a climbing hall in a former silo is unique.
Developer Werner Eckart and Architects Steidle Architekten say the building’s unique design will ensure it attracts a diverse stream of visitors. It is expected that more than 1,000 people - including business people, concert hall guests and tourists from all over the world.- will explore Munich from WERK4 every day. AFK design studio, of Melbourne and London, have designed the generous yet cosy rooms - all of which have city or alpine views. And, in a TFE Hotels’ first, some rooms will even have views of the flock of sheep grazing on the rooftop of neighbouring businesses. Designer Michaelis Boyd‘s for the public areas is a space filled with high-end timber, marble, terrazzo, soft fabric and leather to compliment the raw concrete columns and steel façade.
