One of the oldest hostels in Germany to be transformed by GRAFT Architects

GRAFT Architects have been selected as the winners of an invited competition to revamp an ageing youth hostel in Munich, reports suggest. The design is said to have been chosen over proposals from Snohetta, YES Architecture and haascookzemmrich.

The winning proposal aims to foster a sense of exchange and communication through the creation of ‘experience space’, generating social encounters to enhance the travel experience. GRAFT Architects intend to devise a two-storey lobby and a landscaped courtyard while relocating the main entrance to Winthirplatz Square.

The entire hostel complex will be accessible for disabled users and combines the dining, seminar and lobby spaces into a single gesture. A communications board of mini screens, map projections, QR codes and social media is also included in the plans.
