All the best architecture firms in Germany have to deal with a long, rich and diverse history. Every major European style from Roman to Post Modern is represented, including renowned examples of Carolingian, Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, Classical, Modern and International Style architecture.
A heterogeneous and diverse architectural mix, with architectures differing from town to town. Home of the Bauhaus, the German art and architecture school became the most influential of the 20th century, especially in the field of modern furniture design.
Differently from other main European countries, the most renowned architecture firms in Germany are not concentrated in one or two main cities but are glocally distributed with many branches all over the country. Of course Berlin is the place to be, but you will find many headquarters based in other main cities such as Stuttgart, Hamburg, Frankfurt, Munich, Dusseldorf, Dortmund and Aachen…
…and right from Aachen starts our clockwise journey through the best architecture firms in Germany.

The founding of Staab Architekten dates back to the competition for the Neues Museum in Nuremberg in 1991. Several successful public building projects from different areas such as cultural buildings, scientific research and teaching buildings, office and administrative buildings as well as educational buildings have been planned and realised in recent years. An essential concern of their work is to condense the complex conditions of architecture into a simple, surprisingly plausible form. Here contextual, economic, functional and technical conditions play just as important a role as the formal condition that develops from the respective logic of the building. Focusing on the essential is the focus of their work. This attitude is followed in every detail. So Staab Architekten architectural work is characterized by the careful, conceptual use of form, material and color.

Bez + Kock Architekten
Based in Stuttgart, Bez + Kock Architekten was founded in 2001 by Martin Bez and Thorsten Kock. They are a constantly growing team of about 40 architects. Each construction project is unique. It follows that the appropriate architectural solution can only be found on an individual, task-specific basis. Their goal is to develop distinctive and harmonious architecture based on the existing parameters of location, function and budget. Just as diverse as the design problems, the structures they build are always unique. They say “we welcome this heterogeneity”. Concert hall or library, town hall or university, dormitory or city hall – an autonomous contribution to architecture can emerge from each task.

Well trained in design and typological questions the studio moves within the span of competitions, private and public buildings. Together with their team of about 25 architects they see the challenge of their work in their openness to a wide range of building tasks. The comparison of the projects quickly reveals that the working method does not follow a strictly formulated architecture philosophy. Every new planning task has the potential to create a built space that can set new impulses for further development and change exactly this location with its characteristics.
