The client for the project is the Fugger Foundation, which are tasked with the preservation and operation of the Fuggerei in Augsburg. The Fuggerei was founded in 1521 by Jakob Fugger the Rich and was subsequently expanded and modernised by the following generations. The Fuggerei is one of the oldest social housing projects in the world and is still active today, where 140 residences are made available for needy, Catholic residents. The residents pay a yearly rent of 0.88€ - roughly equivalent to 1 Rhenish guilder (14th/15th century coin). The Fuggerei also houses a restaurant, which was to be redesigned with a new interior and operator. The renowned Augsburg cook and restaurateur Toni Ludwig won the honour with his exciting new gastronomic concept. The design concept for the restaurant kept a certain distance from bold, contemporary trends. Thoughtful reduction to the essentials, skilled craftsmanship and elegant, authentic materiality were key components of the design.
