Nickl & Partner Architekten AG’s design for the human sciences library at Munich University has been awarded an honourable mention.
The building, known as the Philologicum, was the subject of a non-open project competition by the state of Bavaria in which eight of the forty-two entries were shortlisted.
The jury described our design as follows:
“The interior comprises a large number of rooms with a very flexible floor layout that can be divided in different ways to suit changing needs. The workstations are situated along the well-lit west façade and around the elliptical lightwells, which receive their daylight via a glass roof, while the books and other media face towards the east facade, which receives less daylight. […] The project is an excellent design for the Philologicum, and builds cleverly around the existing infrastructure.”
