The former cavalier house of famed Munich-based porcelain manufacturer Nymphenburg is a building with a very special history – and very exclusive lodging after two years of renovations. Visitors can book extended stays in the over 800 m2 guest house, which boast a stunning view of beautiful Nymphenburg Palace. Featuring luxurious decorations and furnishings, The Langham Nymphenburg Residence delivers the service and amenities of a luxury hotel with the comforts of a private home. A little piece of Japanese bathing culture has moved into the Bavarian building with the TOTO shower toilet, WASHLET™.
In addition to its exclusive location on Nymphenburg Palace’s circle, people who visit The Langham Nymphenburg Residence will enjoy an expansive space – with four bedrooms, three living rooms, a high-end kitchen, dining room, workout room, seven bathrooms and a home theatre. What really makes this luxury dwelling so unique besides its sheer size is the guest house’s extraordinary interior design. “Our guests enjoy a great deal of space, privacy and exclusivity in a beautiful, historic environment,” said Doris Greif, Managing Director & RVP Operations Europe & Middle East at Langham Hospitality Group, describing the special features of the Nymphenburg Residence. Munich-based architecture firm Mang Mauritz, responsible for realising the project. stressed that the guest house is also a “showcase for incorporating bespoke porcelain objects into interior design.” For over 250 years, Bavarian porcelain manufacturer Nymphenburg has impressed customers and enthusiasts alike with handcrafted plates and cups, as well as individually designed tiles, washbasins, lighting solutions and sculptures made of the “white gold.”
In this way, the guest house is a kind of stage for the porcelain objects and their intricate paintwork. They provide the inspiration for the different, often magical worlds hidden behind the inn’s many doors. For example, the blue and white decoration in the “Royal Bavarian Spa” features images of all Bavarian castles, and a children’s room is dedicated to the circus.
Holistic design by Mang Mauritz Architekten
Mang Mauritz spent two years painstakingly renovating the over 200-year-old former cavalier house, where the factory’s directors also lived. The opportunity to design this new guest house was both “an honour and a challenge.” According to architect Stefan Mauritz, “We needed to take a holistic approach to this project –from the first sketches to the tiny decorative details. This was the only way to create harmony between this historic “shell” and its newly designed interior.” At the same time, it was necessary to incorporate building, communication and wellness technologies that would meet strict historic preservation rules while living up to the high standards of a five-star hotel.
Japanese bathing culture for Nymphenburg Residence
TOTO’s exclusive shower toilets are among the special wellness amenities found in the bathrooms of The Langham Nymphenburg Residence. Mang Mauritz always works with exclusive brands that can realise their vision of “mindful luxury” in their projects. TOTO is Japan’s leading manufacturer of sanitary ceramic products.
