A vacant, former barracks area in Munich was to be converted into a day bar and cooking lounge. To achieve this, the single-storey, listed building basically had a new construction “implanted”. The volume placed into the existing shell remains readable through the protruding vestibule and the reveals of the new windows. The sobriety of the white interior stands in stark contrast to the property’s fragmented brick facade.
