HOTEL KÖNIGSHOF

Munich, Germany 2013-2021

The project is located in a prominent location in Munich, directly at “Karlsplatz”, also called Stachus, and is conceived to plan a completely new five-star hotel in the same place. For over 60 years the “Königshof” has been ranked among the most exclusively hotels of the Bavarian state capital. Behind the family-run private hotel company Geisel stands a long tradition of an innovative family and the deep relationship of the company with Munich.
In the proposal by Nieto Sobejano, the fact that the building dominates the imaginary line between the “Karlstor” and the “Neuhauser Straße” was the central idea of the urban planning concept. The frontality of the façade underline the independence of the building from its surrounding area, in which the building however wants to fit in at the same time. In direction to “Karlsplatz” a bend reacts to the geometry of the adjacent city blocks. The vertical cutting in the façade facing the square emphasizes the frontality, axiality and autonomy of the draft. The building joint becomes visual for the architectural confrontation with the limits between the interior space and the public space.
