The Lenbach Gärten, a complex built from 2006-2012 with four residential quarters, an office quarter and a five-star hotel are situated in Munich’s Maxvorstadt. Within this prestigious area, a renowned law firm moved into its new offices on 4,100 m² after renovation work was completed.
Previously a straight staircase led to the upper floor but now the rooms on the 1st floor can be reached via an elegantly rounded sculptural staircase. The unusual railing solution with diagonal heights gives the exclusive construction its distinctive character. The curved transition at the exit landing creates an harmonious connection to the flat steel railing for the ceiling on the 1st floor, which is designed analogous to the design of the staircase.
The sculptural staircase, in whose balustrade design MetallArt put an enormous effort was awarded with the price “Staircase of the year 2020” in the category Architecture. Depending on the viewing angle the staircase sculpture seems to be massive or filigree and light.
