The extraordinary embassy complex, surrounded by a 15 m high copper facade, was opened in October 1999 in a joint ceremony of the five Nordic countries and Germany, attended by all six heads of state. The construction sparked enormous media coverage and has won several awards (DuPont Benedictus Award 2003, AIT Award 2004 and finalist for the Mies van der Rohe Award).

The office
The office was founded in 1997 in the heart of St.Pauli in Hamburg. By building the reception building of Lufthansa Technik the success of “Renner Hainke Wirth architects” started in 1999.
In the meantime, the team of architects grew to 25 employees. The planning priorities in the draft as well as the planning permission application and implementation planning of high and urban projects, urban master plans, reports and renovations. The planning of high-quality interiors, light and open space planning as well as the visualization of the projects complement the extensive activities within the office space B71 . Tasks from the private house on facade restoration or renovation , office and residential buildings to transport buildings and master plans determine the diversity of the power spectrum of the office. Participation in national and international competitions as well as the processing of reports with the resulting buildings dominate the work of Renner Hainke Wirth architects.

Everyone is constantly confronted with architecture. Architecture is more than use value creation. Architecture is built concept with sensuality – or not. A good team of investors, users and architect recognizes and worked out, which uses needs a place. Architecture must be tailored to the location, function, time and on budget, and people. The design is then, it is the creative freedom as sensitive response to the genius loci. The art lies in the self-limitation of resources, aesthetic and economic
Ways. Architecture must have a structure and take a stand, because it is and remains publicly and tangible.
