General renovation of Münchner Stadtmuseum

The major challenge in the general renovation and conversion of the Münchner Stadtmuseum is reconciling the protection of a historical monument with the future requirements of a modern museum building. The focus is on the respectful handling of the historically evolved existing building and the careful addition of new elements.

The new heart of the ensemble will be the northern inner courtyard, which will be upgraded to a multifunctional museum lobby through the installation of a full-surface glass roof. A new main entrance at Rindermarkt will open up this lobby to the city and at the same time integrate it into the network of paths in the city centre as a public passageway.

The museum's eye-catcher will be a new cube set in the inner courtyard, connected to the existing exhibition areas on the upper floors via walkways. Primarily visible to passers-by on the ground floor will be the cube's metallic shell and graphic LED displays. The redesign of the exhibition areas, with the cube as the new focal point, will enable the flexible spatial and functional reorganization of the museum.
