MONTBLANC HAUS

Hamburg , Germany 2016-2022

Montblanc House is an exhibition and brand experience building dedicated to the art of writing, sophistication of production and craftsmanship of Montblanc. The new 3,600 m² building is located on the site of the existing manufacturing facility on the outskirts of Hamburg in Altona.
 
The design by Nieto Sobejano Arquitectos is conceived as a 100m linear black solid volume, reminiscent of a writing instrument case, that spans the entire width of the existing site. This elegant longitudinal volume, placed in front of the existing buildings radically transforms the presence of the manufacturing facility and creates a new face for Montblanc which expresses both simplicity and timelessness; values inherent to the brand. The textured concrete façade echoes the mountain massif that gives name to the company. Like a case, a simple exterior volume conceals a sophisticated sequence of spaces over three levels interconnected by a triple height domed hall.
