David Chipperfield and Euroboden have collaborated on the design of a five-story building in Munich, located near the city?s Herzog Park. The 2800-square-meter scheme seeks to ?fit sensitively into the historic fabric of the neighborhood.?The design process revolved around the incorporation of history and pattern from the surrounding environment, without copying or resorting to historicization. The result is a scheme which is ?simultaneously self-confident yet restrained, a building that integrates itself into its context without subordinating itself.?

However, unlike its historic neighbors, which are split into separate halves, the proposal is filled with ?spacious apartments that traverse the whole length of the building.?
