Flexible Use – Timeless Buildings

The practice of Atelier Kempe Thill is renowned for their neutral and economic as well as enjoyable and innovative designs in architecture and urban design. To achieve this, the architects do not shy away from endless discussion with their clients and an unconventional use of materials. “Specific Neutrality” is what they call the balance between unique designs and an architecture that is as flexible as possible since publishing their design manifesto on collective housing in 2004. In today’s world, where the economic situation, the demand for spaces and their use can rapidly change, this approach is more relevant than ever. In their second monograph, the two architects present 23 projects from the last 12 years, complemented by thematic essays by the authors and well-known experts in the field of architecture.

ATELIER KEMPE THILL was founded in Rotterdam in 2000 by German architects André Kempe (*1968) and Oliver Thill (*1970), who are also active in research and teaching, currently holding professorships at the Leibniz University Hannover. Setting out with designs for collective housing and small public building commissions, the practice portfolio has developed to include large renovation, infrastructure, and urban design projects. Today, the office has more than thirty employees.
