Our practice

More than 300 colleagues from over 30 nations: Work in a large, complex system will always be a balancing act between perfect organisation and creativity of the individual and the moment. Amicable cooperation and open dialogue among colleagues shape the collaboration at Heinle, Wischer and Partners. This is enhanced and strengthened by collective skiing trips, excursions and parties.

Our philosophy

We strive for the best architecture. Tasks, places and times of origin may be different, our attitude always shapes our actions: to have regard for the history and culture of the place, to respect the needs of those for whom we are building and to develop future-oriented visions.

From little closed to open BIM - we take future-oriented paths and execute our projects with Building Information Modeling and an integral approach. In-house training, a continuous exchange between the projects and guidance by experienced employees characterize the work in our BIM teams.

Erwin Heinle and Robert Wischer

The Swabian cradle: The history of our practice began in 1962 as an equal partnership between Erwin Heinle and Robert Wischer. From the outset, the field of activity was broad; the specialisation lay in the resolution of creatively, functionally and technically complex tasks. Many competitions, including internationally, led to prizes and orders. From 1969 the practice developed further into a larger partnership.

Examples of this are projects such as the new construction of university hospitals in Cologne, Göttingen, Regensburg and Düsseldorf, the German cancer research centre in Heidelberg, the Olympic village in Munich and the television towers of Stuttgart, Nuremberg and Cologne.

Critical discourse and consideration of their own work was a personal concern of our founding partners, both of whom were committed to research and teaching. Today, we continue this tradition.
