Project Data

more informations

The Arabellapark was created in Munich-Bogenhausen between 1965-1998, as one of the largest urban expansion projects in Munich after World War II. The six-storey office building 'Arabeska' stands on the site of the decommissioned 60’s building “Scheibenhaus” at Arabellastraße 30.

Following the principle of 'Working in the countryside' the free-form structure of the building refers to its surroundings with its forward and backwards swinging facades. The organic architectural language of the building compliments the landscaping around it. The recessed façade entrance leads visitors into a glass-roofed courtyard. The wooden decks, water areas, cafés and the adjoining foyer makes it a much liked meeting point and event space. Schneider delivered the unitised aluminium facades as well as the technically sophisticated steel and glass roof.
