Andechser Am Dom
In 1994, the more than 1000-year-old Benedictine abbey of Andechs opened a Restaurant in Munich where they offered their famous stout and self grown garden products. Latzke was commissioned with creating ceiling paintings depicting the duality principle of the Order.
Ciragan Palace, Istanbul
In 1995 the Ciragan Palace, the former residence of the Turkish sultans at the Bosphorus and now serving as a five- star hotel, was put through a general restoration. With baroque colors and frescoes Latzke brought back the original splendor of the palace.
After more than two decades creating his cuisine in the sterile modernistic atmosphere of the old Aubergine, top chef Eckart Witzigmann switched to a lighter Mediterranean-inspired cuisine. To reflect this in the interior design of the restaurant, Witzigmann commissioned Latzke with the redecoration of the Aubergine.
In 1986 Mercedes Benz commissioned Rainer Maria Latzke with the artwork for their 100-Year-Jubilee exhibition.
In 1984 Latzke transformed the former summer residence of a Turkish Pasha on the beautiful Turkish Riviera into a luxurious guesthouse. The originally narrow entrance now presents itself as a wide and open lobby.
The Demmer pictures are a good example of self-fulfilling prophecies. Latzke painted them at the very beginning of his career for a student pub in Cologne. The subject was both small and large disasters. When the owners changed a few years later, the new owners renovated the pub and since he wasn´t aware of the originator and the value his works had in the meantime, had the images painted over. When Latzke eventually found out he simply smiled, acknowledging that to the existing disasters would have been just another added.
