HENN is an international architecture office with offices in Munich, Berlin and Beijing and 65 years of expertise in the fields of culture and office buildings, teaching and research as well as development, production and masterplanning. The office is led by Gunter Henn and 20 partners. 350 employees – architects, designers, planners and engineers – from 30 countries are able to draw upon a wealth of knowledge collected over three generations of building experience in addition to a worldwide network of partners and experts in a variety of disciplines. This continuity, coupled with progressive design approaches and methods and interdisciplinary research projects, forms the basis for a continual examination of current issues and for a consistent design philosophy. Forms and spaces are no mere objective, they are developed from the processes, demands and cultural contexts of each project. As a general contractor we are able to satisfy this principle at every stage of project planning and implementation.
Programming: A visual communications tool which can be used to structure the dialogue between client and architect and develop the context of the commission.
Architectural design: Forms and spaces are no more objective, they are developed from the processes, demands and cultural contexts of each project in.
Interior design: Correlates with architectural design but is an independent design task.
Urban design: The relationships of buildings with each other, the interplay of architecture and public space, of access and mobility, of identity and society.
Building Information Modelling (BIM): BIM processes and methods offer visualization, simulation and cooperation across the entire project cycle for project partners and service providers.
Quantity surveying: Includes the tendering of projects and the control of costs and progress.
Sustainability: The development of appropriately adaptive, integral systems requires early consideration of ecological aspects in the conception and design process.
The new Zalando Headquarters' a duo of buildings designed to form the heart of the corporate campus at the new site in Berlin-Friedrichshain. The project’s two seven-storey buildings provide 42,000 m² of office space
for 2,700 employees.
The plan layout rotates the building grid diagonally to the development plan thus placing the internal courtyards at the outer edges of the plot. This opening creates transitions between office and public space.
Merck’s site in Darmstadt is progressively remodelled from a production works into a technology and science campus. The heart of this transformation is the Innovation Center with a new world of work. The transparent, cubic building features the unfolding of an entirely new spatial structure. Bridge-like connections diagonally span the space, linking the individual workspaces with each other. Steps, ramps and floor areas spiral upwards.
The HafenCity in Hamburg, on the northerly part of the former free port, has been expanding for over ten years now. A highly densified business location is in the process of being planned in the Elbbrücken district. EDGE HafenCity is the first cornerstone of this so-called Übersee district, creating a prominent anchor point for the development project. The office building incorporates the existing topography and extends it interiorly in the form of terraced levels.
