The former Allianz building in München-Neuperlach needs a holistic redevelopment. The highly representative building - designed in the style of Richard Meier‘s architecture in the 1990s - no longer meets today‘s requirements for economy and adaptability. The building was planned as a representative company headquarters for a single user. Oliv proposes a complete reorganization of the building with the aim of improved usability and a significant increase in space. In the future, the building will work for a single tenant as well as for many different users and types of use. The design is essentially based on a combination of four ideas.
„Fritz Hall“ is the new central access between the main building and the satellite buildings. This allows for an easier orientation and the shortest routes between the building parts and usage units. The passage extends over the entire length of the building with a floor height of more than 11m. Internal stairs and galleries connect the old and the new parts.
The main building is characterized by three large atriums / air spaces today, which makes the building inefficient and it is not possible to divide it into different usage units. The reduction and partial closure of the air spaces in the main building - „Fritz Eye“ - enables flexible, contemporary and open office floor plans. The restructuring of the access to building parts and rooms forms the basis for the division into independent units.
„Fritz Fill“, a two-storey densification between the satellite buildings and Fritz Hall, which enables the horizontal combination of office spaces and an area gain of approx. 1,900 m². As a result, FritzNeu presents itself as a maximally flexible building with contemporary floor plans. Multiple users and different uses can coexist, making the location to a lively, urban place.
The striking architecture of the entrance rotunda - Fritz Head - on the southern corner of the building is extended by another floor. In the course of the revitalization, the space is conver- ted into offices. Essentially, the high-quality architecture of the existing building will be retai- ned and continued in the newly created areas. FritzNeun becomes FritzNeu.
