At the beginning of September 2017 the Lovelace project officially opened its doors in Munich with a Grand Opening.
Situated in the former premises of the Königliche Filialbank (Royal Bavarian Branch Bank), it is open to visitors until 2019 as an experimental pop-up hotel experience. In addition to 30 rooms and suites, The Lovelace also offers space for events and intercultural exchange. The design concept for the hotel rooms came from RBSGROUP consultants, a subsidiary of Drees & Sommer.
In keeping with the spirit of pop-up culture, The Lovelace stands for authenticity and collaboration. The Lovelace not only invites overnight guests; it is intended to be a seen as a cultural institution – and is therefore being billed as a ‘hotel happening’. In addition to exhibition rooms, an event room, a rooftop bar, pop-up shops and a ‘flying lobby’ where food and drinks are served, the hotel area is also part of the concept. The former high-class management offices have been converted into 30 spacious and comfortable hotel rooms and suites. Guests can choose between six categories of rooms and suites, with areas ranging from 21 to 84 square meters and a generous ceiling height of more than four meters. The conceptual approach taken was to acknowledge the building’s history by leaving existing features visible, while giving the rooms an identity of their own.
