Martin Gessert and Albrecht Randecker, the founding partners of h4a Gessert + Randecker Architekten BDA, know how to create designs that supersede the practical and evoke pure emotion. A Vectorworks firm with offices in Stuttgart, Munich, and Moers, Germany, h4a has garnered over 30 prestigious awards and is known for designing buildings with high architectural and technical requirements.

“The development of holistic innovative architecture inspires us,” explains Gessert. "We take a big-picture approach to design, often acting as a general contractor for our own projects." As such, the team oversees architectural and engineering tasks for new construction, reconstruction, and restoration of cultural, school, administrative, and residential buildings, as well as public buildings and outdoor units. The firm’s philosophy is grounded in efficiency, functionality, and sustainability.

When it won first place in a European-wide competition in 2008, h4a had achieved something grand—it had physically manifested the spirit and philosophy of Wala Heilmittel GmbH, a 70 year-old company located in Bad Boll, Germany. Since the natural environment so strongly inspires the company’s mission, h4a carefully crafted a synergistic fit with the surrounding landscape. The result is a complex of spaces that harmoniously blend a working environment with the fluidity and peace of a landscaped park—an innovative set of buildings that simultaneously complements and contrasts with its surroundings.
