STEINSTRASSE 19: TIMELESSLY AESTHETIC
The building at Steinstrasse 19 was acquired by the Heisig and Heisig real estate company in 2005. An elaborate renovation and restoration succeeded in combining the beauty of its original neo-baroque architecture with the demands of modern life style. The renovation took place in 2006 / 7 and by the spring of 2008 all the residential and commercial units were sold.
The entrance, the facades and the staircase were reconstructed in their original form. The facetted panes of glass in the entrance were delivered by the Freiherr von Poschinger Glass Factory in Frauenau. The lock was hand-crafted by the Haidhausen smith, Andreas Köhler. The sophisticated lighting concept for the staircases by “axelmeiselicht” is a masterly combination of tradition and the modern.
The house was built in 1899 in neo-baroque style and was one of the first houses in Munich to include a lifting system for coaches. The façade is an example for the architect’s distinctive feeling for aesthetics. It is divided in six vertical rows of windows, whereby the middle sections are flanked by richly decorated, symmetrical projecting alcoves. The ground and first floors are rusticated. The almost square four-paned windows surrounded by stucco cartouches and decorated gables demonstrate the elaborate building style of the time. The rooms invite to make living in style a reality. Elegant details, like the herring bone parquet flooring, the stucco work and alcoves in the front rooms, panelled doors and high ceilings complete the exclusive living atmosphere. Each flat has at least one door leading to a balcony in the courtyard.
