Ecker Architekten, founded in 2000, has offices in Heidelberg and Buchen. The practice provides full architecture, master planning and interior design services, with special emphasis on public sector projects. EA is multilingual and multicultural, currently employing staff from 6 countries. Diversity is the practice’s greatest resource and is fundamental to a continuous broadening of design vision.
The practice is driven by a consistent philosophical approach, distilling a project into elemental components to uncover new possibilities in built form. The firm actively participates in every phase of the planning and construction process in order to realize buildings of the highest quality possible. EA integrates the development and use of innovative construction methods and materials while building responsibly, striving for a contemporary architecture that ages with grace. When these efforts are successful, the result is an unexpectedly simple construction, an economic and sensuous use of materials, and a qualitative transformation of the ordinary.
