Paint It Black

We transformed the front section of the existing BMW branch in Munich into a MINI showroom by reducing it to its grid and using black colors and graphics. Using the same means, we upgraded a new, additional, several-story parking garage from a standard product to a marque statement. The two buildings were crowned and connected with a projecting rooftop block as a lounge.

Narrative Spaces





Scenography is not confined to  
the stage or screen, nor just to presen-tation events and trade shows. It is a design approach, rooted in narrative, that can be applied as well to individual buildings and even to urban environments.
