design sustainably - build sustainably
In our understanding, sustainability is the totality of planning and entrepreneurial action. It encompasses social, economic and ecological action.
For us, sustainability is not defined solely by the quality of the property, but begins with the selection of the location, the genius loci and its development process.
Our attention as architects and urban planners is also increasingly focused on the so-called "gray energy" and thus also the respect for the architectural achievements of planners and building in the past. Not always is the demolition and a new building the better solution in the understanding of a holistic view.
As a social component, a building cultural heritage is an identification component of the lived and experienced preservation of historical monuments. In this respect, we can cite a respectable number of examples from our portfolio.
With our commitment to efficient and resource-saving planning, we try to make our contribution to sustainability and climate protection.
As architects and urban planners, we deal with all classical service phases, from the project idea to the handover of the keys. Whether feasibility and design studies, implementation planning, construction and artistic direction, every planning is carried out in dialogue and with the greatest possible care and adherence to deadlines. We also see ourselves as an advocate for our clients when it comes to obtaining approval planning under local specifics. Where we deem it necessary, we enter into various strategic partnerships in order to develop sustainable concepts.
Our qualified and motivated team works with the latest design methods and software programs. It is very familiar with current construction techniques and sustainability aspects, construction methods as well as DIN standards. Our workstations are equipped with Vectorworks and/or Revit. An internal BIM coordinator ensures trained interface management. Interdisciplinarity is part of our everyday life
Only the interaction of good ideas, a holistic understanding of architecture, competent employees and specialist planners as well as a trusting cooperation with our business partners and customers enable an extraordinary result. Quality architecture with an eye for detail.
