Van B is all about rethinking city lifestyles. Standing for “very urban living”, the development is ideally located at the confluence of three Munich districts: Schwabing, Neuhausen-Nymphenburg, and Maxvorstadt.
Due to complete this summer, the striking building boasts ground-breaking architecture, houses 142 apartments, and is for discerning investors and owner-occupiers looking for something special, be it innovative design, premium quality materials, attention to detail with finishes, or a combination.
Brought to the market by long-standing Munich-based business Bauwerk, they focus on “planning, developing, and marketing visionary concept properties,” seeing sophisticated projects through from start to finish.
Van B: Fusing cutting-edge architecture with statement art
The groundbreaking residential masterpiece was designed by international pioneer Ben van Berkel and is summed up in three words: expressive, dynamic, and progressive. Units range from one to three rooms (33 to 168 square meters); some have their own roof top garden, while others have separate entrances.
Situated in Schwabing, the eye-catching façade comprises copper-colored metal and rough concrete. Meanwhile, floor-to-ceiling windows and balconies enable indoor-outdoor opportunities.
Shared facilities include a peaceful and lush courtyard garden, a roof terrace with 360-degree Munich panoramas, a 115-square-meter co-living space by renowned interior designer Stephanie Thatenhorst, and an underground garage.
There’s also car and e-bike sharing, e-charging stations, fitness and play equipment, a bouldering wall, and a boules court. What’s more, urban contemporary art is key, created by Layer Cake – Patrick Hartl and Christian Hundertmark.
High-end & customizable fixtures
With specially designed features, the well-thought-out apartments are modern and sustainable, offering nine flexible plug-in modules that influence the layout and functionality, such as wall beds and retractable tables. With that in mind, it’s “not the size of the space, but the abundance of possibilities”.
In terms of décor? Walls are light and monochrome, parquet flooring is designed to last, and there’s terrazzo porcelain stoneware in the bathrooms, plus chrome fittings and rain showers with glass partitions.
Flexible Van B residences
Four typologies are available, creating a broad mix of condos – each makes a bold statement. Choose a one-room flat on the first to fifth level spanning 33-44 square meters or opt for a two- to three-room space and enjoy 44-159 square meters. Both options boast open-plan living, plus bay windows and balconies.
Gallery lofts are found on the ground and first floors, offering two rooms, 86-95 square meters, and their own garden and entrance. Meanwhile, superior top-story penthouses have one to three rooms, cover 48-168 square meters, and have a private rooftop terrace.
This light-filled one-bedroom and bathroom space is listed at €1.44 million, while this 60-square-meter fifth-floor residence is on the market for €1.549 million. Both have two rooms and balconies. Combined with the shared amenities on offer, there’s meaningful long-term returns and value-creation potential.
Standing proudly at Infanteriestraße 14 in Munich and built on a square enclosed by trees, Van B is surrounded by a trio of neighborhoods near the 20-hectare “Kreativquartier” – the creative quarter – a startup and tech hub, and a center for culture and nature. Combining the laid-back qualities of Schwabing, the trendiness of Maxvorstadt, and the historic bourgeois looseness of Neuhausen, there’s also an abundance of greenery, also situated nearby, the city’s largest university for applied sciences.
Cutting-edge Van B
This holistic and architecturally impressive living concept in Schwabing offers 142 units across various sizes and possibilities and boasts returns potential for investors and owners. Residents benefit from visionary, flexible, and super-comfortable homes, plus a host of top-class, art-focused communal facilities.
