HPP International is an affiliated company of HPP Architekten GmbH, one of Germany’s most successful architectural partnerships. As a result of the internationalization of markets, working on projects and receiving commissions outside of Germany has become as usual as collaborating with other specialists across national borders. HPP International Planungsgesellschaft mbH was founded in 1977 and carries out architectural and master planning projects both abroad and for foreign clients. HPP International is a wholly-owned subsidiary of HPP Architekten GmbH and is responsible for the management of international plannings and is also involved in project development and project management. We assist our partners in identifying sites, in the conceptual phase and in the procurement of planning permission and thereby benefit from the country-specific knowledge and experience of our employees from 13 different nations.
The head office of HPP Architekten GmbH is based in Düsseldorf’s Media Harbor. Further HPP offices are located in Amsterdam, Berlin, Cologne, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Leipzig, Munich, Stuttgart, Istanbul, Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen.
