Profile of ASTOC Architects and Planners, headquartered in Germany. One project submitted by ASTOC Architects and Planners has been published on Architecture News Plus (ANP).
ASTOC Architects and Planners has been based in Cologne for about 20 years and creating urban design and architectural projects in Germany and neighbouring countries.
Although architecture and urban design are two separate and independent disciplines, each with its own set of demanding requirements, ASTOC Architects and Planners has been able to combine them successfully in a host of projects. The advantage arising out of this for the client is our dual expertise: Our urban design projects benefit from our substantial experience in the conceptualisation and realisation of buildings, while, through our extensive knowledge of urban design issues and inter-relationships, we are able to endow our building projects with a strong architectural personality, standing in perfect accord with their localities.
The working philosophy of the practice is firmly based on a combination of professional experience, research, education and training. The posts of professor held by Markus Neppl at the Technical University of Karlsruhe and by Oliver Hall at the Ostwestfalen-Lippe University of Applied Sciences as well as other teaching activities of our staff further extend our underlying experience.
