The Stadtpalais Widenmayer, a unique building project underway in the traditional Lehel quarter of Munich, is redefining the concept of exclusive living in Munich. Situated between the Isar and the Englischer Garten in the centre of the metropolis on the Isar, this elegant building project together with its location unifies Munich’s most beautiful aspects. The classical Art Nouveau building ensemble is being completely modernized and revitalized with modern-day building technology which preserves the architectonic details of the heritage building. With its magnificent entry portal and peaceful French-style courtyard, the Stadtpalais provides its residents with generously proportioned living space and its owners with value which will remain stable in the long term for generations to come.
Das Stadtpalais Widenmayer liegt im Stadtbezirk
Das Lehel steht für gelebte Münchner Stadtgeschichte. Es wird aufgewertet durch ortsprägende Adressen wie
Durch die nur 100 Meter entfernten Bus- und Trambahn-Haltestellen, die U-Bahn mit den Linien U4 und U5 in der Nähe und die optimale Anbindung an das Fernstraßennetz ist der Standort verkehrsmäßig hervorragend erschlossen.
The Stadtpalais Widenmayer is to contain exclusive owner-occupied flats of between 45 and 450 sqm, which will more than do justice to the location, the heritage status of the site and the expectations of its future residents.
The property consists of three building sections which frame the French-style courtyard with its fountain. The completely modernized building presents its historical facades to the Isar and Eisbach. The middle building is being constructed anew, and its modern facade harmonizes with historical structures. Thanks to the demolition and reconstruction of the middle building, it is possible to build a garage for the residents – a unique feature in Widenmayerstraße. The utterly prestigious 6-metre-high entry portal hints at the generous proportions of the building.
The construction is protected as a heritage site on account of its many historical details, e.g. the stucco elements in the facade of the front and rear building as well as the pillars of the loggias facing the Eisbach. Inside as well, numerous historical details provide for the special flair of the heritage building: the mosaic floors in front of the lift, stucco elements on the ceilings, the heavy door of the entry portal – all of these are features of the historical site and will be treated with great care during the modernization work so that they can be retained.
Discernment and quality mark every detail of the Stadtpalais Widenmayer, bearing witness to the top-class character of the building and its flats. Albeit, the historical foundations and retained appointments such as the stucco elements and natural stone or parquet floors require particular finesse. The restoration of existing elements worth retaining as well as minute coordination of required additions to the historical details involve a great deal of effort.
But the results are well worth the effort: history is rendered tangible in the interior, and the appointments make it possible to experience the grand character in the historical parts of the buildings and as well as in the new constructions.
The Stadtpalais Widenmayer is being implemented with the objective of setting new standards in the exclusive Lehel quarter. This objective is pursued further on the inside.
