Zum Künstlerhof 13–25, Munich

Uli Seeck planned the seven sculptor studios from 1929 to 1930 in the Neuhausen estate on a site that could not be built on higher due to the plot layout and the appli­cable building regulations.

Each studio consists of a two-story workroom with 45 square meters of floor space, an adjoining room, a storage room, WC, and a storage room for materials in the attic.

In the neigh­boring apartment blocks Zum Künstlerhof 1–11 and Schluderstraße 41–47 there are an additional thirteen studio apart­ments in the attics.

The complex is part of the large Neuhausen housing estate built from 1928 to 1930.

The construction of the housing estate was entrusted to a specially founded stock corpo­ration, Gemeinnützige Wohnungsfürsorge AG (GEWOFAG), which has since become a municipal company.

On the outskirts of Neuhausen, where the city of Munich still had meadows and farmland in the 1920s, a total of 1,600 apart­ments, several stores, small craft businesses, four restau­rants and two kinder­gartens were built on almost 190,000 square meters.

The architect Hans Döllgast was respon­sible for the entire project.

Today, thirty artists have their studios in the Künstlerhof.

Two four-story, elongated apartment blocks border the narrow access road, at the end of which the studios form a concluding square.

The studios with large windows, dark wooden doors and sculp­tural-looking fireplaces have high double doors at the back.

In the square in front of the entrances to the studios is a fountain with a group of storks by the sculptor Emil Manz from 1929.
