Place of potentiality

Whenever you enter our workspace, you will notice: this is a place of work, not of representation.
In our five locations you will encounter personalities, innovative trends and controversies. Usually all at the same time.



If you are open-minded, you value classic architectural drawing done by hand just as much as elaborate 3D work and you are not bothered by the fact that “work in progress” can also mean a full desk, you will experience what makes our work so distinctive in Hamburg, Berlin, Düsseldorf and Shanghai. 

Since 1969 WES has stood for curiosity and innovation, as an invariable of a landscape-architectural approach. This basic philosophy can be found in each of our often award-winning planning concepts and we also live this approach in our workspace.

Our interdisciplinary team of more than 50 employees is led by our four managing partners Wolfgang Betz, Michael Kaschke, Henrike Wehberg-Krafft and Claus Rödding. Hinnerk Wehberg is involved as a consultant and company representative. Hans-Hermann Krafft works in the Berlin office as an additional managing director. Yushu Liu is director responsible for the Asian-Pacific area.

Our work encompasses the design of architectural interiors and exteriors. This includes open space and building planning, green space and landscape planning, master plans, expert reports and urban planning projects, as well as art for architecture. We place a lot of importance on a high level of artistic and contextual quality – from the concept to the professional realisation, something that is constantly affirmed by recently won competitions and awards.

Our interest lies not only in the high quality of the idea but just as much in the excellency of the execution.
The fact that our quality standards always include outstanding implementation, as well as rigorous attention to costs and time planning, makes us the ideal partner for investors and clients.



We have participated in the realisation of innovative projects in Germany, Europe and also in Chinese and Arab countries since 1969.
Of course we have transformed – however we have stayed true to our high standards.

We have always been a partner-led office managed by different constellations:
