At the back of the Maximilianeum, the seat of the Bavarian Parliament in Munich, two extension buildings for additional offices for members of parliament were erected within the circular enclosing wall. The two new L-shaped buildings connect to the wing buildings from the 1960s and continue the orthogonal, symmetrical structure of the old building. The axis of Max-Planck-Strasse is kept open so that the new buildings frame the central part of the Maximillianeum and the old building remains the effective center of the complex. The two eastern facades of the new construction have an independent and contemporary design, dominated by the double-skin facade, which has large reddish wall-type fittings to match the dimensions of the old building.
