This design for longevity was also a key part of the building’s strategy – with the clients looking for a long-term, sustainable contribution to the Werksviertel-Mittedistrict


causing issues to the provision of an open and continuous interior space. The architects pay tribute to fire advisor Sascha Kaefer for his “great concept” which made the balconies possible, offering necessary visual connection from mezzanine floor to main floors.


Because of the presence of a fitness studio, ventilation and sprinkler issues also came into play. “This required a good spatial order principle of building services,” says Schuster. “The main structure is fixed, but if different uses and elements have different lifespans; the engineering can be changed quickly.”


Achievement


WERK12 has reportedly been well-received since its completion, exemplified by the project being awarded the German Architecture Museum (DAM) Prize 2021 for an “excellent and visionary achievement.” Commenting on the award, Schuster’s colleague, and founding partner of MVRDV,

Jacob van Rijs, commented that it was an “honour to receive the prize, especially for a building like WERK12 which presents itself in such a light-hearted way.” He continues: “The architecture world can be quite serious, even dull sometimes, so it’s reassuring that the jury was able to appreciate the value of this fun addition to Werksviertel-Mitte. I’m proud they were able to see beyond the project’s facade to understand that it also deals with some very relevant topics in architecture, with a very deliberate approach to making a long-term contribution to the city.”


The team believes that with this project they have celebrated the location, while creating a foundation for its next chapter, WERK12 being “stylish and cool on one hand,” but also not taking itself too seriously.


Schuster echoes this, concluding: “The building is not typical in Munich, and people really appreciate the joyfulness.” 
