Roof room - Green Lagoon - The roof of the former health house on Dachauer Straße in Munich was finished in oxidised copper. So was the roof of the part of the building connected to the north. Its special aesthetics can only be guessed at from the urban space.

The colour of oxidised copper has always had different appreciations in a long architectural tradition, but due to its natural and at the same time artificial colourfulness (and chemical toxicity) it has a look that sets accents in the urban space and can evoke special associations, such as that of a green lagoon.

The transposition of the colour and structure of the crystalline folded roof into the interior of the building in the form of wallpaper, from which sculptural shelving elements develop, attempts to direct a new gaze (which is created not least by drone flights) to this particular building feature and to develop an experimental interior space from it.
