Berlin, 1st June 2017 – The opening of a new integrated design office in Berlin has consolidated ATP’s presence in Northern Germany. The German architect and urban planner Elmar Rottkamp will run the new ATP studios on Kurfürstendamm together with the building services specialist and ATP board member Thomas Herter in line with the customary ATP principle of dual leadership.
Elmar Rottkamp has most recently spent five years as an Associate Director of the British engineering company Arup Associates in London. At the same time he carried out research into urban development at Kingston University. Having trained as an architect and real estate economist in Paderborn and Dortmund the new managing director of ATP Berlin is happy to be working back in the German market with ATP. In developing the new office Elmar Rottkamp intends to make very targeted use of the advantages of integrated design, which have transformed ATP into one of Europe’s leading offices, coupled with his international project experience: “All design work at ATP is interdisciplinary and supported by the latest digital methods. The result of this is that we ensure both higher quality and certainty in terms of cost and scheduling than our classically structured competitors.”
