Revitalization of the former Beck department store in Munich

Tenant fit-out Expedia

The revitalization of the former Beck department store in Munich-Laim was designed by Oliv Architects and implemented with the general contractor hagenauer GmbH.

After 25 years of vacancy, the steel frame construction was converted into a mixed use of retail and office. In terms of urban planning, Fürstenrieder Strasse was upgraded by closing two vacant lots. The appearance changes from a post-war building to a modern architecture with shimmering metal accents. A premium supermarket is located on the ground floor and first floor. The addition of a terrace floor provides space for offices. Green roof areas, high-quality materials and an atrium create an unobtrusive and timeless design that blends in with the surrounding area.

Part of the office space is occupied by the online travel agency Expedia. The successful tenant fit-out realizes modern work and office environments with the filigree T50 all-glass partition wall system, room-in-room solutions with round glass corners, integrated LED lighting and drywall bulkheads up to the raw ceiling. The partition wall system T46 was used for the fire protection walls around the inner stairwells. In addition to the fire protection requirements, this also scores with fall-proof glazing. The visible supply lines support the trendy loft character of the rooms.
