One building: Van B, Munich’s new architectural icon. Containing ten apartments: the Van B Editions. Ten one-of-a-kind homes, fitted by Germany’s best interior designers. Every apartment an outstanding living space. Everything truly exceptional.
Ten rooftop flats with bright, open rooms and private roof terraces are the true centrepieces of Van B. Their individual fittings and design are the painstaking work of ten design studios. Internationally renowned, supremely talented and visionary in their creativity, they are the crème de la crème in their field. Their concepts imbue each apartment with a unique character. Each apartment is a style-defining one-off – the Van B Editions. Created for people in search of something truly unique.
Renowned partners such as Dornbracht, Gaggenau and J*GAST complement each of these one-of-a-kind apartments. Individually conceived, designed and built for each apartment, J*GAST’s kitchens are the one-of-a-kind feature of each one-of-a-kind apartment. Products by Dornbracht and Gaggenau refine each individual interior concept with a luxury aesthetic, premium materials and enduring functionality. Design right down to the smallest detail.
The Van B Editions are at once an exclusive living space and authentic design and architectural masterpieces.
From conception to exclusive living experience: The ten interior design studios are as individual as their creative layout. They are all defined by a passion for creation, design and functionality. Living becomes experience. Space becomes inspiration.
Because they had always been fascinated by the intense effect that spaces have on people, Melissa Antonius and Lena Schimmelbusch founded the Antonius Schimmelbusch Interior Design studio. Classic craftsmanship, design items from the sixties to the noughties, contemporary pieces by newcomers and established, personal works – these are the ingredients for their very personal take on contemporary design. Their “City Hayloft” concept for the Antonius Schimmelbusch Van B Edition is convincing in every aspect – approx. 73 m² with muted red and blue hues, select fabrics and linen and leather, wood and stone. Bespoke wardrobes and cabinets alternate with striking individual pieces.
Fabian Freytag is a master of staging. He expertly combines his own designs with classics by other designers, imbuing his interiors with glamour with mirrors, lighting effects and patterns. Freytag counts among Germany’s most important and creative designers – there is also always space for humour and the potential for a really good party to begin. “Pied-a-terre pour le plaisir” – is how he describes the concept for his Van B Edition. He has designed the approx. 52 m² with tranquil earthy hues and strong contrasts in orange and green. The kitchen’s worktop combines these colours in a terrazzo effect. Floors, walls, ceilings – Freytag brings his own inimitable touch to all surfaces. The ultimate in pleasurable living.
Gisbert Pöppler’s project portfolio includes classic tasteful minimalists interiors with a Scandinavian influence executed to a supreme standard. For many years this qualified architect was primarily known for his delicate use of colours. In addition to architecture solutions, he also works on extravagant designs for his ever-expanding furniture line. Gisbert Pöppler can always be relied on for a creative surprise. Which he has certainly delivered with the design for his Van B edition, or the “Honey Suite” – the name he has given to his 79 m² retreat. The furnishings are exclusively handcrafted in independent workshops in Germany and France. Fabrics in natural hues, combined with oak, correspond with markedly subdued colours on the walls.
Holzrausch – the name contains many of the convictions that distinguish Sven Petzold, Tobias Petri and the entire Holzrausch team. Custom, aesthetic characteristics and the charm of the natural material wood play a central role in all designs. Wood, which fills a room from the floor to the ceiling; wood combines with concrete in order to savour the aura of strong contrasts. A stage for a material whose vitality is matched by few others. A play with contrasts is the concept for the Holzrausch Edition. Over around 170 m² an exquisite balance is struck between form, colour and material. Naturally wood, but also brass, natural stone, strong earth tones and individually designed and produced furnishings and lights create organic vivacity and strong form.
Nora Witzigmann represents a style that is “free from coercion”. Her room designs always have a playful element, with sufficient scope for pleasant, witty surprises. The transgression of space and time is a good characterisation of Witzigmann’s work: space is transcended, past, present and future merge into a new whole. The Nora Witzigmann Edition illustrates in a skilful and inspiring fashion how subtle yet strong colours, premium-quality fabrics and select patterns can interplay with precisely-crafted furniture design. A wonderfully pleasant atmosphere imbueing around 48 m².
Patrick Batek regards diversity not as a necessity but as a principle. First comes the task, then a feeling for how he can approach it. And only then does he develop the design ideas that encapsulate everything. For the architect the aim is not to fulfil himself but to “create a beautiful and worthwhile experience for other people”. And this happens each time anew, as is the case with the Patrick Batek Van B Edition. The design concept for the approx 71 m² apartment is a harmonious composition of warm materials, cream-coloured walls and whitewashed oak flooring. Classic construction materials with premium-quality surfaces are significant design elements. Fittings form a flowing space to the facade of Van B.
Regina Hoefter likes to view her interiors as “sensual atmospheric pictures”. They are full of contrasts and surprising details that form a fresh coherent unity. Vintage pieces and self-designed ensembles, custom-made items and lucky finds from the art trade and antique shops go harmoniously together, without one of these elements seeking too much of the limelight. The dialogue between contrasts and the creation of tensions – these are the guiding ideas that also shape the Van B Edition. Hoefter skilfully stages a variety of materials. Wood, stone and fabrics with natural colours are woven into a whole on around 100 m². Organic shapes meet rectilinear elements. Striking masterpieces combine with elegantly-proportioned, sophisticated pieces. The sensual atmosphere can be seen and felt
Robert Stephan can draw on his well-established talents in vintage design for his interior layouts. He knows that good design has a great deal in common with a shy animal: it isn’t comfortable in every neighbourhood. And simply combining the best pieces can swiftly end in a style disaster. Furnishing a room discretely with vintage design to exciting effect requires sensitivity and intuition. And Robert Stephan has both in spades. For his approximately 96 m² Van B Edition Stephan creates a sophisticated world of contrast from cream and black hues and round and asymmetrical shapes. He combines paper, wood, fabrics and rattan in a balanced interplay.
Casualness and glamour: Sebastian Zenker has a weakness for the design classics of the 1960s. And he always seeks to “transport part of this era into the present” in his designs. But naturally without having a “retro or museum-like” effect. Clear lines, strong colours and the power that can unlock aesthetic contrasts are among his signatures. In the design of his Van B Edition Zenker was also guided by a supreme sense of style and the quest for perfection. Deep blue, olive green, matt black and dark wood are broken through by neon yellow elements and black-and-white patterns. Each item of furniture stands out with its unique form language. On around 58 m² he creates an interior world that simply has to be discovered.
The architect Stephanie Thatenhorst would like to invite people “to make more time for themselves” in order to discover their own creativity. In her interiors the stylistic breadth ranges from complex, almost zen-buddhist simplicity to vibrant neo pop. But for all of the diversity of her work, one aspect remains constant: Thatenhorst creates atmospheres so dense and distinctive that they envelop one like an aura. Or like a daydream. The approximately 71-m² Stephanie Thatenhorst Edition is a unique fantasy of living with a creative blend of materials: fabrics and tiles cover walls and floors, wood clads furniture and walls, and stone and glass is found on numerous surfaces. The warm colour spectrum with earthy tones interacts with organic shapes and extravagant designs.
Ten apartments, ten one-of-a-kind homes. Up at the top. On the panorama level, on the top floor of Van B. It´s uninterrupted views. The private roof terrace with a 360º view of Munich can be directly accessed in seconds from each Edition.
Each buyer can purchase one Edition apartment.
Built on a square, surrounded by three neighborhoods: Schwabing, Neuhausen-Nymphenburg, Maxvorstadt. Van B takes advantage of the best. The relaxed quality of life in Schwabing. The bourgeois looseness of Neuhausen. The trendy lifestyle of Maxvorstadt. And all of this in the middle of greenery.
Van B is not the only example of what becomes possible when potential meets creativity. In the immediate vicinity, a role model for Munich’s future is being created in terms of urban development: the “Kreativquartier”.
