Joint Venture with German Hospital Planner APF
APF and ATP Frankfurt have been working together since 2012 under the motto “Doubled know-how for hospital buildings which are perfect in every way”. This know-how covers not only the medical but also the humane, psychological, ecological, social, design-oriented and economical aspects of hospital planning.
Our objective is to jointly develop the best solutions for clients, patients and employees in the hospital sector in order to create special places for speedy recovery and agreeable, problem-free working.
The demands on the design and construction process for energy-efficient and resource-saving hospital and laboratory buildings as well as complex administrative and specialist medical facilities are becoming ever more complex. Only extensive expertise and specialist know-how which is constantly in step with the latest innovations can guarantee success. In order to achieve such objectives, the architects from ATP and APF work closely together with ATP architects engineers’ own structural and mechanical and electrical engineers. Our shared philosophy is that projects are developed from the very beginning in an integrated, simultaneous process which involves all relevant specialist disciplines in order to develop solutions which take all aspects of the task fully into account. This approach ensures design efficiency while avoiding later adaptations which are costly in terms of both time and money.
APF Architektenpartner Frankfurt was established in 1971. After winning competitions for – and later realising – a number of medical buildings, the company quickly became recognised as a leading hospital designer. In 2010 the experienced employees Tobias Rechenberger and Norbert Helmus took over the office and have run it since then together with one of the founders, Volker Wissenbach. APF Architektenpartner Frankfurt today represents a sense of security in the act of building which stems from years of experience combined with state-of-the-art architectural ideas.
