Founded in 1999, OLIV architects based in Munich are an independent, interdisciplinary team of architects, interior architects and building engineers. In the last 20 years, the office has been working in the planning of buildings for business ventures, in the gastronomy sector and for office buildings. During that period, OLIV architects have become particularly interested and accomplished in revitalisation Projects. One current project, during which OLIV is applying its experience, is located at Fürstenrieder Straße 21 in the company’s hometown Munich. For 25 years, the 8000-square-meter shopping mall Beck in Laim stood empty, but in 2015 a two-year development process began and finally led to an issuance of a building Permit in March 2017. In a revitalisation Project like this, there are numerous challenges along the way.
