Design-focused serviced apartment brand Locke is set to open its second aparthotel in Munich in July.
Wunderlocke will open for short- and long-stays on July 17 and will be located in the city’s Sendling neighbourhood. The 360-apartment property features facilities including a co-working area, coffee shop, meeting and event spaces, an outdoor heated swimming pool, sauna and workout studio.
Designed by Holloway Li, the interiors feature a raw concrete frame, paying homage to the neighbourhood’s industrial past, while earthy tones, warm timbers, natural materials and botanical greens represent the natural side.
The property will also house five food and drink venues across seven floors in August, conceived by the founders of local Michelin-starred restaurant Mural. The ‘Mural Farmhouse’ concept will include a 70-cover all-day restaurant, a fine dining chef’s table, coffee shop, wine and cocktail bar, and rooftop with panoramic views of the Bavarian Alps.
Food will be supplied by local and regional producers, echoing the farm-to-table movement, and a rooftop urban farm will provide handpicked seasonal herbs and vegetables.
The aparthotel has also forged collaborations with local businesses including lifestyle and music duo Public Possession and fashion brand Coexist.
Eric Jafari, chief development officer and creative director, Locke, commented:
“WunderLocke is our most boundary-breaking Locke to date, creating a destination in the heart of Munich where locals and travellers alike can immerse themselves in the creative sub-culture of the city. Our ambition with this project was to create a wonderland, where you lose a sense of time and journey seamlessly throughout the day, from the co-working space, coffee shop and swimming pool, to Mural Farmhouse and its skyline bar in the evening.”
The brand has an existing property, Schwan Locke, in the Glockenbachviertel district of the city.
The Locke brand was launched in 2016, and currently operates 12 properties across five markets in the UK and mainland Europe.
