From the outside, you would never imagine what creative potential lies within this inconspicuous commercial building in the trendy Munich Glockenbach area. Through a metal door like at a nightclub and then via a lift you reach “The Flushing Meadows”, a hotel with a difference. The 11 studios and lofts on the third floor – each with exposed concrete ceilings and a ceiling height of 4 meters – have been designed by personalities from different areas (music, design, gastronomy, fashion, sports or art). The spectrum of the rooms is diverse ranging from whimsical and morbid, pompous, surf-style to Japanese minimalist. The five bright penthouse studio on the fourth floor have a different ambience: they have carpet floors, fabric-panelled walls and copper detailing. Three of them offer a terrace with views to the Alps. But this beautiful view can also be enjoyed from the bar: the communicative heart of the hotel, with a casual living room atmosphere, scores big points with its roof terrace and panoramic views.
The temporary pop-up project Flushing Meadows Camp at Lake Barmsee is run by the same owners. In order to counteract the Corona bustle, the traditional guesthouse “Maximilianshof” in Wallgau was pop-up renovated in June 2020. More information: The Flushing Meadows Camp at Barmsee.
