5 Höfe, Munich

The construction of the City Arcade FÜNF HÖFE (FIVE COURTYARDS) enabled the architectural redesign of a historic area where no-one would have expected it – in the heart of Munich.
The international architects Herzog & de Meuron, Ivano Gianola and Hilmer & Sattler were responsible for this.
Transparency, generosity and rich variety characterise the passageways and inner courtyards. Places where people not only want to shop and enjoy themselves but, above all, also to relax.
The shop windows protrude from the walls like glass cabinets. In the Salvator passage, which is covered with a wavy grid, plants hang well down into the passage. Daylight reaches the floor through the gaps.
