In Meschede in 1966, with the firm ”Werkgemeinschaft 66” Eckhard Gerber began his self-employed activity as independent architect. This start in business was based upon successful involvement in architecture competitions — he first began producing competition entry designs as a student. After the tragic death of his partner, Dirk Stelljes, Eckhard Gerber continued the office with a new headquarters in Dortmund – from 1981 under the name “Professor Gerber und Partner”. Over the years of successful work the office, which has been called “Gerber Architekten” since 2002, has seen steady growth. It counts 170 dedicated and experienced team members. Besides our headquarters in Dortmund there has been since 2007 an office in Hamburg, and since 2011 our office in Berlin and the locations Riyadh and Shanghai have been added.
We are always seeking the best design for each new particular situation. It is this very special attention to seek out alternative solutions for a location, that characterises our design work.
