“Our motivation stems from the fascinating challenge of finding a unique solution for each building project,” says Martin Gessert and Albrecht Randecker, who founded the architectural office h4a Gessert + Randecker Architekten in Stuttgart in 1998. Initially focusing on residential buildings, they soon expanded their portfolio by taking on public building projects for schools, offices and health care facilities. Judging from their impressive growth to approximately 60 employees and two additional offices in Duesseldorf and Munich today, their approach to creating innovative but functional, individual buildings has certainly paid off. Around 40 awards gained for national and international architectural competitions during the last five years are further testimony to the office’s solid standing in the world of architecture.
