On 74,400 square meters in the Berg am Laim district, "Die Macherei" gives people who want to contribute something a place to live. New life is breathed into an urban area, where work is rethought, and spaces are created for people and companies that continually reinvent themselves.
The six buildings of the Macherei inspire with their post-industrial loft architecture as well as their clinker facades and thus span a fascinating arc from the past into the future. The overall concept fulfills the high demand for flexibility, individuality, architecture, and style. Hence, the Macherei stands for the future working world and is a forward-looking impulse for Munich and the surrounding area. During the planning of the Macherei, a modern mobility concept was already developed. In addition to connections to public transportation and the highway network, this includes car and bike-sharing services directly in the neighborhood, bicycle parking and charging stations in the underground parking garage with around 800 spaces. Monitors in the lobbies provide information at all times on the fastest and best means of transport to reach the destination.
"New Work" thrives on cooperative and agile forms of work and requires variable office spaces, such as cells, open or multi-spaces, which adapt to the individual projects and their teams. The Macherei offers flexibility, presents new synergies, and thus a corporate culture that can be experienced. On the roofs of the Macherei, tenants explore a workout area, green retreats with plenty of seating, a running track for joggers, and gardens to grow their own fruit and vegetables.
The Macherei offers various possible uses: In addition to a large grocery retailer and a gastronomic variety, Gold's Gym attracts visitors with an exclusive fitness offering. From March 2022, the four-star Scandic hotel will bring the Scandinavian and sustainable hotel industry to the Bavarian capital. Guests can expect 234 rooms, a restaurant, and an exclusive bookable rooftop bar at over 33 meters with views of the Alps. Munich-born New York architect Matthias Hollwich created the hotel's novel design with high standards and sustainable influences. Additionally, he developed an eye-catcher in the making: Ten floors in the design of stacked and interlocking cardboard boxes that perfectly match the brick look of the Macherei.
Design Offices provides unique working environments with a high-quality service for all the makers of tomorrow. From co-working workplaces to pfully equipped individual or team offices with flexible terms, private office floors for companies, and bookable rooms for meetings and conferences. Furthermore, Design Offices offers its customers trendy locations on various roof terraces, including perfect service, for customer events or a company party under the open sky.
The district and its architects are already an attraction that is considered a new impulse generator in Munich's east. In addition, the non-profit Munich Art District (MAD) is making a name for itself as a lighthouse project supported by various players in the east of Munich, such as the initiators Art-Invest Real Estate and ACCUMULATA Real Estate. The common goal is to create places for urban art in the entire district in order to provide an individual and artistic facet. Moreover, to increase the attractiveness of the neighborhood even further.
