The Hotel Königshof, which was owned by ‘Geisel Privathotels’ until 2021, was demolished in 2019 and replaced by a new building. From three winning teams in the architectural competition, Nieto Sobejano Arquitectos received the final award. This luxury hotel with 4 basement levels and 10 upper floors has a footprint of approximately 42 x 35 m. An outstanding element of the new building is a longitudinal cut in the façade, which is located on the side of the Stachus roundabout and the pedestrian zone. The hotel reopened for business in June 2024.

By simple means the structural design concept emphasizes the design idea of a multi-storey atrium as well as high flexibility in the floor plan and spatial development. The building’s structure is based on shear walls and inner cores providing lateral stability and a load-bearing façade in combination with flat reinforced concrete slabs. The small number of vertical support elements enables not only a high degree of flexibility, but also allowed rapid construction process, too.
