The “Palais an der Oper” is situated in the most beautiful square in the city, directly adjacent to the National Theatre and Residence. As part of a revitalisation and expansion project which is sympathetic to the existing buildings, first-class bars and restaurants, designer boutiques, luxury apartments and prestigious offices were being developed over a surface area of around 32,000 sqm.

The CSMM was responsible for the transformation of exclusive office space in this picturesque building ensemble. The result is a unique combination of historic structure, new design and office space layouts in a prestigious building. This proved a convincing argument for an international company, which moved into a surface area of 5,000 sq. m. in the ‚Palais an der Oper‘.

Starting with concept and design of a building marketing and events venue as well as general planning and implementation CSMM then redesigned the building structure and office space layout for the tenant, DLA Piper, followed by the usage concept and building structure for the ‘Opera House’.

For the restoration of Palais an der Oper, which transformed part of the building into large, high-quality and coherent office spaces, CSMM reorganised the office space and revised the building circulation and fire protection concept. Within the space of a year, the project was budgeted, planned, approved, put out to tender, awarded and executed, and the lease areas were handed over on time. The architectural handling of historical elements of the building represented a particular design challenge.

Working in partnership with the lower-level listed building authorities and the State Office for the Preservation of Local Traditions, the preserved “Klenze Wing” and the “Opera Houses” were carefully and appropriately incorporated into the tenant’s usage concept. The tenant also entrusted the tasks of planning and the interior architectural design of all office areas, including lighting and furniture design, to CSMM.
