A perfect reflection of the traditional and the contemporary: With Lagot comes change to a slice of Alt-Bogenhausen history. The history of a flourishing restaurant, a successful company and, more importantly, the people who shaped this part of the city with their ideas, their architecture and their vision. The site becomes the hero, who serves as a reminder of times gone by and at the same time heralds in a new era. It provides a firm foundation for a brilliant future, a future that pays homage to the past. The monument stays, the Togal-Werk goes, Lagot comes.
The restaurant in Ismaninger Straße had been family owned since 1795. It first belonged to the Grünwald family and, through marriage, to the Betz family from 1848 onwards. The incorporation of Bogenhausen into Munich and the gentrification of the neighborhood that accompanied it, gave the restaurateurs reason to replace the old Biedermeier building, with its beer garden and dance pavilion, with something new. And thus a new building designed by the architect Paul Pfann was erected in 1900. The St. George's fountain, created by none other than the architects of the Angel of Peace, Heinrich Düll and Georg Pezold, was built in 1901.
In 1921, in Ismaninger Straße, Gerhard F. Schmidt acquired the initial premises for the company he had founded in 1914 in Bogenhausen, Kontor Pharmacia, later Togal-Werk AG. The property became a cornerstone of the company's corporate identity and only changed hands after the death of his son, Günther J. Schmidt, who had managed the company from 1960 onwards. At the end of 2010, the 5,100 m² piece of property and all the existing buildings – including the listed building – passed into the hands of Bayerische Hausbau and is now preparing itself for its new role.
Lagot extends a warm welcome. With its six buildings grouped around a central inner courtyard, it does credit to this prestigious location. The traditional and the contemporary meet for an exciting tête-à-tête. In the forecourt in Ismaninger Straße, not only bars and restaurants but also residents, employees and visitors gather around none other than the historic St. George's fountain located there.
Those wishing to design something for the future must acknowledge that which already exists. The new buildings will be set back, providing an unobstructed view of the historic villa as a gesture of admiration of what has gone before. The prominent location between the Federal Fiscal Court and the Mayor's Garden graciously highlights this fact. Lagot's design becomes a language of its own – an expression of the highest possible quality of life for people who appreciate the out of the ordinary.
The Overall Concept
Lagot offers a harmonious blend of space in which to live, work and relax. Each of the buildings, be it old or new, makes a valuable contribution to the success of the whole. Behind the striking facades lie exclusive condominiums, state-of-the-art commercial space and an underground parking garage. Exceptional architectural details and lushly landscaped open spaces in the courtyard area serve as new garments for the venerable site.
Alt-Bogenhausen has always been considered Munich's top address. Prestigious buildings are many in number, generous office space hard to find. Anyone who settles down here appreciates the extraordinary and joins a list of prominent residents such as Thomas Mann, Erich Kästner and Franz von Stuck. This is a place where you quickly forget that you are living in a 21st-century business metropolis. No hustle and bustle, no hurry, no noise – instead the neighborhood, which opens up a multitude of possibilities, is defined by a lively cultural scene, monuments steeped in history, and streets lined with elegant villas.
12.4 million overnight stays, 6.4 million visitors to Oktoberfest, 92,600 companies, the city with the highest quality of life in Germany. Munich provides a stage for leading business enterprises, top students and cultural diversity. Munich acts like a magnet attracting industries, visitors and residents with the lowest level of unemployment, a wide range of recreational activities and an impressive infrastructure. Munich offers a highly desirable housing market and a robust market for office properties. (Source: www.muenchen.de — data as of 2012.)
Alt-Bogenhausen is more than merely an exclusive residential neighborhood full of villas. It is defined not only by its rich urban landscape but also by its gardens and squares that extend an invitation to stop and linger. Anyone setting out for short walk from Lagot, strolling through Maximilian Park in the direction of Hofgarten, enjoying a quiet moment in the neighboring Mayor's Garden or looking for a place to relax on the banks of the Isar River will find themselves in a setting that gives rise to an exceptional rhythm of life.
Bogenhausen is an amalgam of opposites: culinary diversity alongside small shops for everyday needs, rural peace and quiet amidst a vibrant city with over 1 million inhabitants. If, starting at the gold-plated bronze column of the Angel of Peace, you move east down Prinzregentenstraße past the Villa Stuck museum, you will reach the cultural heart of Bogenhausen, the Prinzregententheater. If you go west, the Haus der Kunst art museum will soon welcome you with open doors. But no matter where the road leads, it is lined with countless libraries, galleries and collections.
Flourishing businesses, venerable companies, strong leaders – they have always found a home in Ismaninger Straße in Alt-Bogenhausen. Lagot maintains this tradition, and the exclusive range of state-of-the-art offices furnishes proof of its entrepreneurial spirit. Offering high-quality, technically sophisticated facilities, a high level of energy efficiency and careful attention paid to detail, the contemporary working environments create the framework for a refined business culture. In Lagot, the day begins in bright and airy single, combined and open plan offices that impress not only with their flexible layouts but also with their unique and distinguished ambiance. High ceilings, air conditioning and large windows create an extremely pleasant working environment.

Lagot's monument, what was formerly the Togal villa, is an homage to bygone days. Preserving as much as possible, replacing only as much as necessary – this is the principle according to which the historic building dating back to the late 19th century is being revitalized in close cooperation with the city's preservation authorities.
Perfectly designed, the carefully restored building reveals a charm all its own and once again brings the history of the site to life in an inimitable way. The sumptuously luxurious living space on the upper floors is only open to few. On the ground floor, an office with approximately 550 m² of space serves as the representative of a distinguished place of business.
The beautifully appointed interiors are a continuation of its overall captivating appearance. Oiled oak parquet floors and exclusive fittings, state-of-the-art technology and lovingly restored historic wooden doors, high stucco and splendid vaulted ceilings – every detail awaits its new owner, ready to create an unparalleled ambiance.
