We have been creating architecture for companies and their employees for decades.
We have experienced and shaped all generations of modern office architecture: from the German corporate headquarters of the post-war years to the first international projects in the 1960s, such as the Standard Bank Centre in Johannesburg (South Africa), to modern working environments and corporate campuses in China, Germany and Turkey.
This has enabled us to gain decades of experience in the planning of office buildings - be it tailor-made for a company in the sense of "corporate architecture" or on behalf of project developers for the rental market.

Flexible space for 1,800 office workspaces and a myriad of amenities for the workers
The demands placed on companies have changed: In today's innovation competition, they need the full potential of their employees in order to keep pace at a global level. At the same time, the way of working has changed and knowledge workers in particular are looking for environments and employers that enable communicative and concentrated, healthy and varied, flexible and pleasant conditions.
Today, companies are finding themselves more and more in competition for innovation
Whereas in the past the focus in office buildings was on symbolism, prestige and standardised workplaces, today it is values such as independence, freedom of action and participation in the team that require a variety of working environments for employees.

Nowadays, corporate architecture is not about creating monuments, but creating values.
Health, sustainability and the urban integration of a corporate campus into its surroundings are central aspects of the design. More than ever, our task is to create spaces that establish an overall impression of identity.

A high-end technology park with its
focus on dynamics and networking
Modern working environments contribute to well-being, creativity and stronger identification. The process goes from the standardised workplace to the working landscape. Inspiring environments take individual needs into account and foster diverse forms of work and communication: The employee selects the appropriate work area according to the task.
The trend towards individualisation and the simultaneous presentation of teamwork call for the availablity both of quiet spaces for reflection as well as for communication zones.
Architecture for well-being, concentration and identification
Additional services on a holistically-designed campus as well as recreation and break areas promote healthy working in the sense of a sustainable corporate culture.
Recruiting and retaining employees
We develop individual, identity-shaping and dynamic concepts for our clients, which are holistically tailored to their needs and requirements. Because the architecture and the working environments are an expression of the company's own philosophy.
Anika Hülser, Associate Partnerin HPP
Attractive working environments must be more than just digital, flexible and agile.
After all, companies want to find a "cultural fit" when looking for employees, i.e. an employee who fits the company and represents similar values. In addition, identity-forming and user-oriented spaces not only attract candidates, but also increase productivity and employee satisfaction.
Flexible architecture as a fundamental design principle to preserve value
The architecture for new work must be contemporary - but adaptive and adaptable in order to deliver long-term value.
Our buildings can adapt to new trends and technologies. This enables them to make future forms of work possible that we are not even aware of today.
Flexibility achieved by means
of intelligent spatial concepts
We give buildings a second life
We have created architectures that were trendsetters at the time and, thanks to the forward-looking and flexible design principles used, are often "state of the art" again today after revitalisation.
