About us

We are the “phase eins” architects.

We provide our clients with advice in the initial stage of their building projects and act as moderators between clients, authorities, architects and experts. Our services cover management consultancy for project fundamentals, fine-tuning project design and selecting optimal partners for subsequent stages of planning. Our core competence consists in managing design competitions and other tender procedures.

We enjoy international renown. Delivering lectures and participating in activities of professional organizations, we participate in international dialogue. We are thus in a position to promise our customers adherence to the highest safety and quality standards at justifiable costs.

Looking towards sustainable solutions, we pursue an integrative planning approach. To that end, we implement, in cooperation with all the parties involved in the planning process, customized, feasible solutions.

Competition Management

Competition Management

[phase eins]. is an architectural practice founded in 1998 in Berlin with an unusual focus. The architects working here neither design any buildings, nor spend time on construction sites; instead, they exclusively supervise projects during the initial stage of projects, the “phase eins”. The company provides assistance with the strategic orientation of a project, clarification of site conditions and organization of the selection of the most suitable design and designer for the project.

Together all these services define the core activities at [phase eins]., the management of design competitions, for which [phase eins]. has earned its worldwide reputation. The practice can look back on more than 100 successfully completed projects in Europe, Africa, the Americas and Asia, including urban development master plans, administration buildings for businesses and governments, cultural buildings, universities and research institutions.

Competition management requires not only expertise in planning and more technical areas, but also relevant experience in dealing with authorities and knowledge of applicable legal conditions. Since large, complex projects rely on the communication between developers, planners and the respective authorities, mutual trust is the basis of cooperation. The practice therefore creates the foundations with an individually tailored process management plan.
