Geier Maass Architects together with Stefan Bernard Landscape Architects and Phillip Sattler, Berlin, were honoured for their design of the Hall of Residence Agnes-/Adelheidstraße and International House at the Bavarian competition “Wohnungsbau Bayern 2019”. The focus of this Bavarian competition named “Lückenfüller – Besser Wohnen durch Wachstum nach innen” (Eng. Filling the Gaps – Better Living by expanding inwards) was on successfully increasing the amount of living space available in desirable urban areas with high-quality housing.
Students were able to move into the newly built Hall of Residence “International House” in December 2014. It does not only contain accommodation for students, but also classrooms for the German lessons of the Munich University. The original idea of Gottfried Pflüger, the founding father of the International House, was to accommodate students with entirely different nationalities in order to encourage intercultural communication and integration. In 2016, the first students moved into the newly constructed neighbouring building Adelheidstraße 15.
We are very pleased about this honour and would like to congratulate the architects!
