He who wants to feel at home from wall to wall and room to room should design his living space as integratively and harmoniously as possible. According to the philosophy of the German architectural duo Mang Mauritz, architecture and interior design should not be understood as separate disciplines but, instead, must be interpreted as interwoven and, if possible, unified elements.
PHILOSOPHY OF HOLISTIC LIVING
Architect Stefan Mauritz gained experience in world-class companies such as Rolls-Royce and Feinkost Käfer before he founded his own architecture firm in Munich in 2007. With his business partner, architect Thomas Mang, he has a congenial associate who has worked with star architect Helmut Jahn in Chicago, gained experience in New York, and supervised his own projects in Switzerland and Monaco. Together, the pair bring their wide-ranging expertise to the fore at their company.
Both Stefan Mauritz and Thomas Mang are members of the Bavarian Chamber of Architects and share a joint philosophy of holistic living — a doctrine they have continuously perfected in recent years. Today, the Munich-based architecture and design firm realises luxurious residential and commercial environments as part of projects that range from initial structural design to the purposeful placement of carefully curated decorative objects.
IT STARTS WITH A FEELING
“It always starts with an idea. A solitary customer request. A place, a memory or even just a feeling,” says Stefan Mauritz, describing the typical approach to his work. “We have confidential conversations with our customers to trace preferences and personal habits and derive the perfect way to live.”
Uncompromising quality standards are implemented in all phases, from planning and construction to the last detail of the interior design. When it comes to furniture and accessories, Mang Mauritz works with top international designers but never loses sight of exceptional rarities. Objects from brand partners such as Donghia, Promemoria or Porzellan Manufaktur Nymphenburg are joined by discoveries from the antique markets in London and Paris.
BESPOKE SOLUTIONS AS A STANDARD
What if that dream piece cannot be found, or the ideal décor doesn’t yet exist? “Well, this is the perfect reason to create a unique piece and thus true harmony,” says Thomas Mang. “For this purpose, we have built up a network of selected specialists over the years — from the Berlin artist’s studio to the Italian workshop and the carpet designer from Hong Kong.”
RANKED IN THE FORBES’ TOP TWENTY
In 2020, the Langham Nymphenburg Residence, designed and staged by Mang Mauritz, opened in Munich. The intimate abode is housed in a 200-year-old cavalier’s home in the historic Nymphenburg Schlossrondell and combines the amenities of a five-star hotel with the majesty of an eighteenth-century private palace. Forbes magazine ranked the project among the twenty most important hotel openings of 2020.
In addition to such special projects, the architect duo builds and designs private residences and luxury refuges as well as brand stores such as those of Swiss fashion designer Philipp Plein. Always with the claim to find nothing less than the perfect solution based on holistic architecture, the firm follows a credo that nature also seems to live, building true harmony in every little detail.
