ARCHITECTURE EQUAL MASTERPIECE
When the BMW Group decided to build a brand-experience and car-delivery centre within close vicinity to the corporate headquarters and the BMW Museum in Munich, Germany, 275 architects participated in an open international competition for design of the future construction. In a multi-stage
selection, the design by COOP HIMMELB(L) AU won the competition. BMW Welt with its entirely unique architecture is a masterpiece in itself. The incomparable design concept is characterised very much by the unique roof structure and the so-called Double Cone designed in a position at the head of the entire construction. The interior of the BMW Welt is just as impressive withs its architecture, which creates the right atmosphere in which to present the BMW Group brands - BMW, MINI and Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. With a number of car and motorcycle galleries, two shops - BMW Lifestyle & Accessories with 650 m2 on two floors and the BMW Welt Shop with 60 m2, Restaurant International, Bistro and Coffee Bar with a total of 450 seats, forum with space for approx. 700 people and BMW Museum next to it, the BMW Welt is visited annually by approx. 2 million visitors.
