This Bavarian monument, situated at Karlstor, Munich's historic western city gate, is undergoing a transformation. OSA is shaping a new multi-tenant structure for exciting mixed-use—research, teaching, gastronomy, and retail. Stay tuned as Herzog Max evolves and enriches Munich's cityscape.
Our main rescue centre for the Bavarian Red Cross in Munich receives the German Design Award in the Special category!
An adaptable, environmentally friendly architecture with 24.000 square metres of floor space and a three-storey underground car park. Hybrid timber construction, a photovoltaic facade and state-of-the-art energy efficiency make it a CO2-neutral building.
We would like to thank our partner Neuplan GmbH for the great cooperation!
We're excited to share that our Heimeran project has won the German Design Award 2024! In the "Excellent Architecture" category, the office tower at Heimeranplatz impressed the jury with its prominent position and distinctive form. We're proud of this recognition and thrilled to receive the award for our design and innovation.
OSA's hotel design for 'Stay Koook' in Leipzig's vibrant inner western centre has achieved the final stage of facade completion!
Drawing inspiration from the early 20th-century aesthetics found in the surrounding architecture, it stands as an iconic addition to this culturally rich quarter. Set to captivate visitors with its cultural gems, museums, and a diverse culinary scene.
As the "Time Space Existence" exhibition nears its end at this year's Venice Biennale, OSA sincerely thanks all visitors who explored our showcased model. The exhibition has been a platform for architects to showcase their innovative concepts and design philosophies and we are honoured to have been part of this creative dialogue.
Our model, epitomizing the fusion of functionality and urban innovation, stands as a testament to our unwavering commitment to stretching the boundaries of architectural design. We're immensely grateful for the opportunity to share our vision for the future of architecture with all our visitors. It was an honor to provide guests with insight into our creative process and innovative thinking, offering a glimpse into our unique approach to architecture.
We would like to thank all our visitors and look forward to further opportunities to present our visions and creations.
For those who haven't had the chance yet, our showcased model is available for viewing until November 26th!
Our elegant office building takes shape. The topping-out ceremony took place on October 12th at Hansastrasse 29. The future users are already looking forward to moving in.
We are pleased about the progress of construction of our Hansa 29 project. The 2nd floor is already under construction, 2 more floors will follow.
The building in the west of Munich will become an ultra-modern office building surrounded by green spaces. Recesses and building masses jumping back and forth create generous loggias and terraces that can be used not only during breaks.
We are incredibly excited to announce the laying of the foundation stone at Kistlerhofstraße Munich! Together with partners and friends, we filled the traditional time capsule, looked down into the 17-meter-deep excavation pit as a farewell toast to Munich's first wood-hybrid office pushed to the limit.
The forward-looking project creates new space for the headquarters of the Bavarian Red Cross. The wood hybrid building will have an excellent carbon footprint. The energy concept ensures that 98% of the primary energy demand is covered. Despite the high demands on the operation of the BRK, 57% of the required electricity and heating/cooling will nevertheless be generated directly on site: a contribution to climate protection with the positive additional effect of reduced ancillary costs.

The construction site is already in full swing - our Herzog Max is growing!
The building is listed as a Bavarian monument and characterises the cityscape of Munich's pedestrian zone. It is located directly at the Karlstor, the western city gate to the historic old town. The long east facade of the listed architecture, built around 1865, runs along Herzog-Max-Straße, after which the building was named. The last tenant was Karstadt, a department store for sporting goods. After that it stood empty. OSA is now developing a new type of multi-tenant structure for the Herzog Max for an exciting mixed use of research and teaching, gastronomy, and retail. The main tenant will be the Max Planck Institute.
OSA is participating in this year's 18th edition of the ECC Architecture Biennale Time Space Existence. We invite everyone to visit our project at Palazzo Bembo in Venice. The exhibition is officially open to the public up until 26 November.
Our project "FUTURE URBANITY" is a parametric experiment focussing on complementing existing building structures with modular components which represent the key aspects: mobility, living and leisure (sports & recreation). The social and structural needs of an urban ecosystem are reflected through the different modules clinging to the existing building structures and creating a new symbiosis.

At 140 Kistlerhofstrasse, we are creating a large space for saving lives. The building will be the new main rescue station of the Bavarian Red Cross in Munich and will house blood donor services, the Mountain Rescue and the Water Rescue, as well as the vocational school for emergency paramedics and nurses..
Right in the middle of central station area in Munich, we transformed the old Alpina parking garage into a new MOBILITY HUB and OFFICE SPACE – the MUC.ONE. (MUC.ONE - MOBILITY HUB & OFFICE SPACE (muc-one.immo) The mix use building offers spaces for automatised parking lots and office space. A forward-looking property that simultaneously meets the requirements of a modern city centre and combines public and private uses. A green facade and a flourishing green garden with trees on the roof will invite visitors to linger, thus serving as a link between Matthäser roof gardens and the green courtyards to the "green" clinic district at Sendlinger Tor.
We designed the building complex for the Munich-based investor Tectaplan. A total amount of around 84 new apartments and commercial use. The residential complex is a highlight for Weilheim and brings new urbanity to the small town. Read more here ￫
The 9.900 sqm future-proof office campus offering 500 workplaces will be located in Waldkirch, Germany. The key concept developed from the core of SICKS corporate philosophy:
”We are down to earth engineers, with both feet firmly planted in the ground, that aspire to transform to a “Tech-Company”. We simply do what we say, are who we are, and we make a difference in the world, without making a fuss about it.”
We simply created the perfect workspace for SICK members of staff, and we made an office building ready for the future, without making a fuss about it.
The Hammer AG and Optima-Aegidius group of companies are continuing the transformation of the former Siemens site in Obersendling with their 31,000-square-meter SOHO building.
We are pleased about the great interview at Architekturblatt with Fabian Ochs.
"Der HEIMERAN" office tower at Heimeranplatz eventually reached its final height! We are very happy about this important highrise landmark in Munich: an ultra-modern office complex characterized by visionary architecture.
In cooperation with Studio Vulkan and ARUP we envisioned a 65m tall building at Rosenheimer Straße in Munich for Art Invest. The core structure of the existing office building, constructed in the 70s will be preserved and expanded by two additional volumes. All dressed with a facade of green photovoltaic louvres generating around 25% of the energy demands of the building.
The perfect combination of nature and urbanity at the Loisach - new living space and enhanced infrastructure in the heart of Wolfratshausen.
Today, Nymphenburgerstrasse presents itself as a mix between old and new. Next to the stuccoed early day houses stand architectures with smooth facades without decoration and simple, serial window arrangements. They were built in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. At Nymphenburgerstrasse 48 there is such a six-story building, erected in 1983, for which we planned and visualized a new layout.
Munich's Westend is changing. Our plan? To replace an old irrelevant building on a barren piece of wasteland with an elegant, ultra-modern office surrounded by greenery.
On June 25 from 11:00 to 12:00, architecture lovers can visit the Atlas high-rise in the Werksviertel with Fabian Ochs.
