M Moser reveals EY's new 'hospitality style' workplace
M Moser Associates creates a community-focused workplace designed for interaction.
Up on the seventh floor in Sendling, Munich, Wunderlocke offers guests a series of rooftop and penthouse suites as part of its 360-key aparthotel complex.
Led by interior architects Holloway Li, the reveal comprises eleven one-bedroom open plan suites, three two-bedroom penthouse suites and a Wunderlocke Penthouse Suite, all of which incorporate biophilic features and design cues that draw on the building’s Bavarian surroundings.
Alex Holloway, Creative Director and Co-Founder of Holloway Li says: “This was our first opportunity to design penthouse suites for Locke and we were spoiled by the panoramic views the building afforded.”
Holloway continued: “Our design scheme for the penthouses chimed with the overall concept for WunderLocke, both paying homage to the heritage of the host building by retaining the exposed concrete shell and using natural materials as well as a thoughtful colour palette and greenery to provide a fitting counterpoint to the machine-age setting of the space. We hope the spaces provide both a sense of renewal as well as a connection to the wonderful surrounding city.”
The 100 sq m two-bed penthouse suite enjoys a view of the city, while the 126 sq m Wunderlocke Penthouse Suite benefits from mountain vistas and features a private terrace and jacuzzi.
Holloway Li partnered with artist Claire de Quénetain to produce bespoke upholstery fabrics for the external terrace loungers; Quénetain’s illustrations also take inspiration from the building’s natural setting, combined with its industrial past. Munich-based multidisciplinary artist Monika Morito was also commissioned to paint a mural in sunset tones.
True to Locke’s emphasis on comfort and flexibility, each of the seventh-floor suites feature superfast Wi-Fi and a fully equipped kitchen.
Both penthouse suites offer separate living quarters featuring an eight-person dining table and king-sized beds in each bedroom.
An urban rooftop garden is due to open in spring 2023, which will also be accessible to guests from the seventh floor.
