Langham Hospitality Group has announced that it will manage The Langham Nymphenburg Residence, located within the stately 490-acre imperial estate of Nymphenburg Palace, just a 15-minute drive from the Munich city center.
Scheduled to open in the winter of 2019, The Langham Nymphenburg Residence is steeped in royal Bavarian history. Guests will enjoy the privacy and exclusivity of this 18th century manor with a privileged location next to the Royal Nymphenburg Porcelain Manufactory, renowned for its exquisite avant-garde and tailor-made designs for four centuries.
For lovers of the arts, The Langham Residence’s connection to the Royal Nymphenburg Porcelain Manufactory is undoubtedly its greatest advantage. Founded in 1747, the unrivalled global reputation of the Manufactory for creating completely handmade porcelain – without any automated production techniques and by using its own paste derived from centuries-old recipes – make the porcelain masterpieces it painstakingly creates to be highly revered by art connoisseurs the world over. The Manufactory has cultivated the noble art of porcelain-making using brilliant handmade artistry that has been preserved and passed on for generations. At The Langham Residence, this dedication to the pursuit of beauty and the highest quality is evident in all the interior spaces, making it a living tribute to skilled craftsmanship and artistry.
Offering an exceptional view of the Nymphenburg Palace and the immaculately landscaped gardens, The Langham Nymphenburg Residence will feature four bedrooms, three living rooms, two wine cellars, seven bathrooms, a home cinema, an elevator and a dining room that seats 12 people comfortably. A private sun-dappled terrace with a water feature and centuries-old sculptures will set the scene for special occasions for up to 100 seated guests.
At the completion of an extensive refurbishment program in the summer of 2019, the three-story Residence will be well-appointed with bespoke furniture pieces and accessories handcrafted by specialist brands and ateliers. With oversight by Munich-based interior design firm Mang Mauritz which counts some of the more established European private residences in their portfolio, these include Donghia furniture by Rubelli, textiles by Jim Thompson, whimsical wallpaper by Cole & Son, Dornbracht bathroom fittings in polished copper, gold and matte black, Gaggenau kitchen appliances, and handmade-to-order beds, upholstered with only the finest natural fibers, by Vispring. Unique themes will run throughout The Langham Residence especially in the ornately decorated bathrooms, and in the children’s room which showcases a playful circus motif. The Residence will be illuminated by porcelain chandeliers and light fixtures, and a Lindsey Adelman lamp of brushed gold combined with the finest white Nymphenburg porcelain will grace the dining room. Not forgotten are the audiophiles who will be aurally gratified with the arresting sounds emanating from the Sennheiser Orpheus electrostatic headphone system in the family room.
Rounding up all these remarkable features is a specially curated selection of pieces from the Nymphenburg porcelain workshop that will be placed throughout the 9,000 square foot Residence. Renowned for their collaborations with celebrated artists and fashion designers such as Karl Lagerfeld, Miuccia Prada, Christian Lacroix, and Elie Saab to name but a few, some of the extraordinary works at the Residence will include two impressive porcelain “Myth and Legend” sculptures by Damien Hirst in the dining room, Commedia Dell'Arte couture edition figurines by Vivienne Westwood (photo, right) and photographer Nick Knight’s limited edition representation of supermodel Kate Moss.
A full retinue of staff will attend to the guests who will also enjoy the exclusivity of The Langham services, including unparalleled access to the Royal Nymphenburg Porcelain Manufactory and the Nymphenburg Palace.
