Offices at St. Kunibert

Cologne, Germany

VAN DEN VALENTYN ARCHITEKTUR, VALENTYNARCHITEKTEN since 2010, is a building engeneering firm, which plans and realizes projects since 35 years.

The focus is on trade and service premises (i.e. hotels, offices, administration buildings), residential buildings, public buildings (i.e. museums, concert halls), educational and scientific buildings which all are developed according to an integral architecture understanding with a general design concept comprising interior architecture.

Thomas van den Valentyn founded his architectural office after completing his studies under Hans Hollein at the academy of arts in Düsseldorf in 1975. With Hollein, van den Valentyn realizes his first building: the Abteiberg-Museum in Mönchengladbach. Two awarded projects followed: the Beethoven Archiv / Chamber Music Hall and the Hotel Domicil in Bonn, both responsible for establishing Thomas van den Valentyn.

Since then the architectural office gains appreceation and strenght. Innovative project´s were launched: the Victoria Ensemble in Cologne, the Juridicum in Halle an der Saale, the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung and the office and residential building Quartier 108 are pathbreaking realizations. VAN DEN VALENTYN ARCHITEKTUR applies himself to heritage protected restorations, often in combination with complex and delicate architectural additions (i.e. ehem. Reichstagspräsidentenpalais, Berlin; Max Ernst Museum, Brühl; AXA Konrad Adenauer Ufer, Cologne). The T-home Campus in Bonn proves the Offices disciplined but sensitive environmental handling with vast structures implemented in an complex urban site.

The projects by VALENYTNARCHITEKTEN are well known for their tense dialogue with the genius loci, are characterized by functionality and economy, and can be experienced by material and shape in a very sensual way.

With a highly motivated and experienced team VALENTYNARCHITEKTEN are creating individual architectonic designs for their various clients which they realize maintaining a high standard in quality, assured in costs and timeframes.
