The Alte Akademie is located in one of the most attractive areas in the heart of Munich and has a 130-metre-long building front in the pedestrian zone. This former Jesuit College was originally built in the 16th century, and it was acquired by SIGNA in the form of a 65-year leasehold in 2013. The contract for the conversion was awarded to Basel-based architectural firm Morger Partner Architekten. The historical ensemble will be developed further in a harmonious, respectful way. All façades will be renovated in accordance with preservation orders. Any interventions that may be necessary are based on the character of the existing architecture, which is over 400 years old.
