schmidt hammer lassen architects vinder prestigefyldt hotelprojekt i München, Tyskland

Blot en uge efter offentliggørelsen af vinderprojektet til den Internationale Straffedomstol i Haag markerer den danske arkitektvirksomhed schmidt hammer lassen architects sig igen ved at vinde arkitektkonkurrencen om at tegne et ca. 40.000m2 stort 5-stjernet hotelprojekt i den sydtyske by München. Konkurrencen er den tredje store internationale arkitektkonkurrence, som schmidt hammer lassen architects har vundet i første kvartal af 2010.

Hotelprojektet er placeret i den nye bydel Schwabinger Tor, langs den nordlige ende af Leopoldstraβe. Udfordringen i konkurrencen var at bringe Münchens byarkitektoniske karakteristika, med det liv og den atmosfære, som det historiske centrum er kendt for, med ind i den nye og moderne bydel. schmidt hammer lassen architects’ arkitektoniske koncept tager udgangspunkt i tre elementer: En analyse af den historiske by med buer, hvælv og arkader; et tæt samspil med masterplanens boulevarder, pladser og stræder; og et fokus på det enkelte menneske og hotelgæstens oplevelse.

”Arkademotivet er kendt i München og er med til at formulere en overgang imellem den offentlige plads og det private rum. Der opstår et semioffentligt rum, hvor folk kan opholde sig og betragte livet i byen. Det er denne værdi, vi ønsker at tilføje hotellets stueetage,” siger partner hos schmidt hammer lassen architects Kim Holst Jensen.

Mod nord og syd danner to nye bypladser et naturligt ankomstområde for hotellet og konferencecenteret, som schmidt hammer lassen architects yderligere har understreget med to markante, gyldne hvælvede rum. ”Disse helt unikke rum giver følelsen af at være en del af noget særligt for både hotelgæsten og den forbipasserende. Det er betagende, storladent og luksuriøst,” siger Kim Holst Jensen.

Hotelværelserne er ved et enkelt arkitektonisk træk gjort helt specielle. De integrerede, store og luksuriøse badeværelser – en form for private spa-rum – med dagslys og visuel kontakt til det grønne, giver en afslappet og karakterfuld atmosfære i alle hotellets værelser. ”Brugen af dagslys er et gennemgående tema, som vil give hotelgæsten en udsøgt oplevelse og sætte helt nye standarder for top-hoteller,” forklarer Kim Holst Jensen.

Bygningsfacaderne giver med deres poetiske rytme af lodrette lameller, og den åbne stueetage, et tilskud til byens rum. Med udgangspunkt i den skandinaviske tradition med fokus på lys, åbenhed og enkelhed har schmidt hammer lassen architects skabt et markant og karakterfuldt bygningsværk, der forbinder det klassiske med det moderne, og skaber et unikt og elegant hotel med sin helt egen profil.

Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architects wins prestigious hotel complex in Munich, Germany Just one week after winning the design of the new permanent premises for the International Criminal Court in The Hague, schmidt hammer lassen architects wins the architectural competition to design an approx. 40,000 m2 5-star hotel complex in Munich, in the southern part of Germany. This competition is the third large international competition won by schmidt hammer lassen architects in the first quarter of 2010. The hotel complex is situated in the newly developed Schwabinger Tor area, along the northern part of the Leopoldstraβe. The challenge in the competition was to bring the architectural characteristics of Munich into this new and modern part of the city. schmidt hammer lassen architects’ design concept has its origin in three themes: the analysis of the historical city with its arches, vaults and arcades; a close relation to the masterplan with its boulevards, plazas and narrow streets; and a focus on human beings as well as the overall experience offered to the hotel guests. “The arcade motif is well known in Munich and emphasizes the passage from a public plaza to the more private urban spaces. The arcade creates a semi-public space where people can sit and observe the urban life. We want to integrate this architectural feature into the ground floor level of the hotel,” says partner at schmidt hammer lassen architects Kim Holst Jensen. North and south of the building complex, two new urban plazas form natural entry points to the hotel and the conference centre. The entrances are accentuated in the building design by two impressive, golden vaults. “For the hotel guests and the passers-by these very unique spaces offer a feeling of being part of something special. The vaults are fascinating, spacious and luxurious,” says Kim Holst Jensen. The hotel rooms have been designed to become one-of-a-kind. By integrating large and luxurious bathrooms – as a kind of private spa-rooms – with daylight and visual connection to the outside greenery, the atmosphere in the hotel rooms becomes relaxing and impressive. According to Kim Holst Jensen, the use of daylight is a general theme throughout the building complex. It offers the hotel guests a unique experience and sets a whole new standard for high-end hotels in general. The building facades with their poetic rhythm of vertical lamella and the open ground floor level add something to the urban spaces of the city. With reference to the Scandinavian architectural tradition of working with daylight, transparency and simplicity schmidt hammer lassen architects has created an outstanding and expressive building complex. The classic values are combined with a modern design and the result is a unique and exclusive hotel with its very own style.
