Redevelopment concept for under-utilised department store in central München.
The Concept involved the addition of accommodation modules to the existing structure. These student housing facilities are encapsulated within an undulating canopy roof structure. The roof structure is specifically designed to control and enhance the environmental conditions. The modular units are self supporting and loaded onto the existing structure. Small modifications are made to the existing structural framework with strengthened columns to support the new loads and a false floor to encase the services for each of the modules.
