Max Planck Institut

Max Planck Institut


The »Max Planck Institute« for Comparative and International Private Law is dedicated to international knowledge transfer. For the redesign of the central lounge zone, brandherm + krumrey interior architecture therefore opted for an invigorating spatial concept. Continuing the existing materiality and colour scheme, the office developed an inspiring ambience that radiates timeless serenity. A sequence of rooms with the newly designed »Café Max« invites to research, meetings or relaxed conversations.

Statement of the jury

The redesign of the »Café Max« in the Max Planck Institute was formally clear and of high quality, with cleverly placed accents creating a lively and inspiring atmosphere that nevertheless radiates calm and invites people to linger.
