hgp Architects, Engineers + Planners

Consultation, planning, implementation - our architect’s office in Berlin has been operating for more than 25 years. Together with private individuals and companies such as Deutsche Bahn, Sony Deutschland and Tishman Speyer Properties GmbH we develop individual and exciting projects in Berlin, East Germany and Eastern Europe. With an unwavering focus on feasibility and creativity, we develop forward-looking and ecological buildings in accordance with the latest standards.

 

The main focus of our current project work, alongside industrial construction and house building, is revitalisation concepts for existing properties – from a former swimming pool to listed residential buildings. The revitalisation and careful modernisation of existing buildings has emerged as a special field of competence.

At the request of our clients we frequently undertake complex tasks which go beyond conventional planning services. For example, for the operators of the Sony Center Forum on Potsdamer Platz in Berlin we planned the erection of an eight metre wide LED screen together with the necessary acoustic technology for the entire outdoor area of the Forum – a challenging task between building design, event technology and acoustic planning.

 

We are accustomed to managing projects with a variety of stakeholders and in the process take on coordination tasks of the client. Wherever possible we oversee our projects through the site management provided by our office. We see ourselves first and foremost as a consultant for our clients. Therefore we support you from the outset through all planning stages – starting with service phase “0”, in which the most important factor is to jointly define realistic project objectives and individual utilisation concepts (pre-development).
