BMW Classic Café
On the listed BMW site on Moosacherstrasse in Munich, CBA planned the redesign of the existing Classic Café. The elongated space, to which a small museum is also attached, extends from Moosacherstrasse to the inner courtyard.
BMW internal and external visitors are offered breakfast and small meals here in addition to the café operation. The small café is also the end point of the guided tours through the archive halls of BMW Classics.
The center of the room is formed by the bar and sales counter, which is clad with reflective surfaces. This visually breaks up the massive block. The distinctive polished stainless steel edges on the fixtures in the existing building are retained and, as a recurring element, form an important part of the material concept of the interior.
The long, continuous wall creates a reference to BMW Classics. The repeating, oversized black and white photo of a BMW 3.0 CSL is the defining element of the interior design, which radiates through the large arched windows into the exterior space, especially in the evening. A glass exhibition showcase was integrated into the wall, displaying various BMW art cars.
