Aparthotel brand Locke has welcomed the official launch of its first property in mainland Europe, schwan Locke.
There is also a complimentary co-working space, gym, coffee shop, retail space, leafy courtyard and craft cocktail bar.
Locke’s home-meets-hotel concept aims to put the guest at the centre of the experience, creating spaces that are designed to be lived in in, not just slept in.
The top-end apartment, the Ludwig Suite, takes this concept a step further; with a six-person dining table and custom cocktail bar, plus an expansive terrace with views of over the city.
The Werkbund sought to redefine aesthetic standards by combining traditional crafts and industrial mass production techniques, in the belief that high-quality applied art could improve the nation’s quality of life.
“Munich is steeped in a rich and diverse history, while also being home to a unique creative landscape.
“We wanted to celebrate this – paying homage to the city’s past, but working with disruptive, forward-thinking partners to bring our vision to life,” said Eric Jafari, chief development officer and creative director, Locke.
