The space of the former machine hall was revitalized and turned into a modern visitor center with exhibition space and shop. The infrastructure was modernized, exhibition cubes developed, but the character of the industrial heritage was kept in tact by restoring steel carriers and columns, mobile cranes and hoist ropes. We also exposed the brick walls. Vending modules made from steel and oak were designed and a modern seating areal with bar integrated.

First named "Palast Theater" in 1920, the Filmpalast operated as a cinema since GDR times. The big hall is currently being reconstructed after historic example.

Ottomar is a studio for interior design and spacial concepts, which was founded in 2014 by architect Christian Weise. Ottomar is located in Görlitz and its international team develops complex creative solutions for interior as well as outdoor areas of hotels, restaurants, shops as well as exhibition spaces.

We always develop our designs in regard to extensive context of the particular project to deliver a tailor-made concept to our clients. We aim to integrate diverse stories of the space, its involvement to its surroundings and its materiality. It is important for us to experiment with materials and textures, to create contrasts, to confront forms and to make space tangible, which equally serves function and imagination.


Ottomar passionately developes creative solutions in realms such as interior design, exhibition design, design and architecture. We supervise all steps from first consultation, planning, coordination and execution in close cooperation with architects and artists.

With more than 25 years of professional experience in the field of building planning and longstanding collaboration with companies of different construction fields, we are able to plan ahead and competently accompany and realize demanding projects.

Ottomar is dealer of special interior furnishings. We can provide furniture by diverse manufacturers for you. We work with international brands such as Arper, Gubi, Moooi, Moroso, Rothschild & Bickers and Petite Friture amongst others.


Wir arbeiten derzeit an einem neuen Hotelprojekt in Zittau. Das "Sonnenhotel" soll noch im Spätsommer seine Türen öffnen.

We are working on a new project at the Untermarkt in Görlitz. "Benigna" opens this summer and its interior design evokes the cloth-making and weaving craft that used to be domiciled here. We develop the project in collaboration with the artist duo Schulz & Weise.

Designed by Marius Schwarz and developed by François Girard-M, you can find all projects in a new design. Thanks to Franz Mueller Schmidt for the beautiful documentation of all the Projects!
