With a sen­se of social respon­si­bi­li­ty, we deve­lop con­tem­pora­ry, sus­tainab­le living spaces, put­ting peop­le at the cent­re of all we deve­lop. Our goal is to crea­te liveab­le and inspi­ring spaces that meet the needs and desi­res of peop­le from dif­fe­rent social and eco­no­mic back­grounds. To this end we tap into the syn­er­gies ari­sing from an inte­gra­ti­ve and har­mo­nious­ly inter­con­nec­ted approach that com­bi­nes archi­tec­tu­re, art and nature.

As a humanistic art form, architecture is the continuation of nature’s constructive activity.

Artprojekt was foun­ded by Tho­mas Hölzel in Munich in 1985, and the firm has been head­quar­te­red in Ber­lin sin­ce 1997. To this day the company’s gui­ding princip­le has been our uni­que approach to crea­ting attrac­ti­ve spaces for living and working – with ambi­tious archi­tec­tu­re, crea­tively desi­gned out­door and natu­ral spaces, always with a sub­stan­ti­al inte­gra­ti­on of con­tem­pora­ry art. In line with this phi­lo­so­phy we crea­te resi­den­ti­al, loft and com­mer­cial pro­jects, a num­ber of which – even the ear­liest examp­les – have won awards.


Sin­ce 2015, we have pur­sued this sym­bio­sis of archi­tec­tu­re, art, and natu­re with the aim of crea­ting the hig­hest stan­dards of resi­den­ti­al living and over­night stays, app­ly­ing it also to the deve­lo­p­ment of excep­tio­nal, owner-operated, and artis­ti­cal­ly cura­ted hotels and restau­rants. Here, too, we wish to con­vin­ce, cap­ti­va­te and inspi­re with our out­stan­ding archi­tec­tu­ral con­cepts that fuse a high level of uni­que cha­rac­te­ris­tics with dis­tinc­ti­ve design.


In order to ensu­re the­se deman­ding qua­li­ty stan­dards are ensh­ri­ned in every new pro­ject, Artprojekt enga­ges renow­ned archi­tects, con­tem­pora­ry artists and expe­ri­en­ced cura­tors, who are coor­di­na­ted and sup­por­ted by our lar­ge team of around thir­ty employees.


Buil­ding upon a com­mer­cial foun­da­ti­on of suc­cess­ful pro­jects with a deve­lo­p­ment volu­me of some two bil­li­on euros to date, Artprojekt’s work focu­ses on inte­gra­ting aspects of urban plan­ning, cul­tu­re and social issu­es with an inter­di­sci­pli­na­ry approach to project-related exper­ti­se and coope­ra­ti­on. In the­se times we must rise to the chal­len­ge of proac­tively inte­gra­ting the needs ari­sing from social respon­si­bi­li­ty in the design and plan­ning of buil­ding pro­jects, crea­ting afford­a­ble living space, and deve­lo­ping new plat­forms for work or stu­dio space for the new genera­ti­on of artists.

ARTPROJEKT Development

The parent com­pa­ny as eco­no­mic foun­da­ti­on and incu­ba­tor for ideas


The entre­pre­neu­ri­al free space with the skills and capa­ci­ties for the deve­lo­p­ment of new con­cepts and pro­jects. Here we iden­ti­fy trends, eva­lua­te ide­as, deve­lop inno­va­ti­ve pro­ducts and rea­dy them for mar­ket, for­ge stra­te­gic alli­an­ces, and plan and mana­ge the con­ti­nued deve­lo­p­ment of our group of companies.


The deve­lo­per for the pro­fes­sio­nal rea­liz­a­ti­on of real esta­te projects


The busi­ness and tech­ni­cal staff at Artprojekt work hand in hand with exter­nal experts in the pro­fes­sio­nal rea­liz­a­ti­on of resi­den­ti­al, hotel and com­mer­cial pro­jects. The real esta­te experts plan and coor­di­na­te the com­mer­cial and tech­ni­cal aspects of the­se pro­jects until the very point the keys are han­ded over.

ARTPROJEKT Hospitality

The plat­form for cura­ted hotel and restau­rant concepts 


The hos­pi­ta­li­ty team trans­forms the com­pa­ny phi­lo­so­phy and qua­li­ty deman­ds in the field of hotels and food ser­vices. Their task is to take the owner-operated hotels and restau­rants deve­lo­ped by Artprojekt tog­e­ther with top archi­tects and cura­ted by art experts. They seek to posi­ti­on the­se pro­jects as out­stan­ding hos­pi­ta­li­ty pro­ducts with attrac­ti­ve indi­vi­du­al pro­files offe­ring guests new dimen­si­ons of hospitality.

ARTPROJEKT Interior Design

The team for deman­ding inte­riors and furnishings


The plan­ning team for the deve­lo­p­ment of unusu­al and custom-tailored inte­riors. Inte­rior archi­tects, desi­gners and inte­rior deco­ra­tors design and rea­li­ze con­cepts for inte­riors and fur­nis­hings for com­ple­te pro­jects or indi­vi­du­al units wit­hin our group of com­pa­nies as well as indi­vi­du­al solu­ti­ons for resi­den­ti­al cli­ents or com­mer­cial users.
