Herzog & de Meuron Basel Ltd.
4056 Basel, Switzerland
Our practice in Germany has developed over time, to the point where the region is now one of Herzog & de Meuron’s most important locations. We have had offices in various locations since the 1990’s. Projects like Galerie Goetz, the Allianz Arena and the Elbphilharmonie have pushed the boundaries of their typologies, made an international impact, and were catalysts for our practice.
We have continuously strengthened our close connection with the Bavarian capital of Munich since the competition for Fünf Höfe in 1993. Currently, we are planning the conversion of the former Paketposthalle – a listed building designed as a package distribution center – to become a catalyst for public life in the western part of the city and the center of a new mixed-use neighborhood for which we are designing the master plan. The project, along with its two towers, is undergoing exemplary public participation and debate. Near the main station, we are converting the Postbank Karree of the 1990s into an energy efficient, flexible large-scale office building, with a central garden open to the public.
Our studio in Munich ensures strategic partnerships with planners, close contact with our clients, onsite presence throughout the development and execution of projects, and reflects our long-term commitment to the region. Our Munich team embodies Herzog & de Meuron’s culture, work ethic, and professionalism. They are well-versed in local planning regulations and construction methodologies and are involved from initial contact with all stakeholders to the handover of a finished project.
