CREATIVE temporary USE BY THE ARTISTS' COLLECTIVE BROKE.TODAY
Historic preservation meets art
Then an innovation, today an industrial monument. The engine house, which was built around 100 years ago at the beginning of the 20th century and is now a listed building, represents an important milestone in the development of Munich's Schwabing district. As Munich's first combined heat and power plant, it primarily served to supply heat to Schwabing Hospital. Since its sale in 2018, the boilers have been at a standstill. In order to fill this historic site with new life until it is rededicated as a unique office location, we are making the Maschinenhaus available to the artists' collective broke.today within the framework of a creative interim use.
A house inside of a house
Following the interim use, the building will be carefully gutted and refurbished. New floor ceilings will then be installed with a table-like support structure, enabling the building to be used as an open-plan and loft office - a house within a house, so to speak. A gastronomic offering is planned to cater to future users and the neighborhood.

Art and culture with broke.today
broke.today is a Munich-based collective of street artists, designers, musicians, architects, craftsmen and creative professionals. They are reactivating the Maschinenhaus and transforming it into a temporary meeting place for art, culture, crafts, technology, and sports. ehret+klein is making the building available free of charge until probably mid-2022 and is providing financial support for the interim use project.
From August 2021, broke.today will host regular exhibitions and vernissages with local and international artists. Workshops for street art, sports programs for young and old as well as open workshops and creative workplaces are also planned!
Welcome dear neighbors!
Not only the structural aspects of the Maschinenhaus represent a special feature. The exposed location in the middle of a young residential area as well as the neighboring Schwabing clinic grounds also makes the Maschinenhaus stand out in its form of use. This makes it all the more important for us to involve the neighborhood at an early stage.
No sooner said than done. On July 15, 2021, together with broke.today, we presented the current interim use as well as the future use of the building and were available to answer questions about the Maschinenhaus. The rededication of the empty monolith to a colorful and lively space for art and culture met with great approval and lively interest among the citizens.
