The interdisciplinary team of more than 50 employees is led by the four managing partners Wolfgang Betz, Michael Kaschke, Henrike Wehberg-Krafft and Claus Rödding. Hinnerk Wehberg is involved as a consultant and representative. Hans-Hermann Krafft works as extended management in the Berlin office. Yushu Liu is the regional head responsible for the Asia-Pacific region.

We pay great attention to all service phases, from high quality "artistic" and content concepts to professional realization. The office's work includes the design of architectural interior and exterior spaces, open space and object planning, the preparation of expert opinions and urban development concepts as well as art in architecture.

The spectrum of our successfully realized projects ranges from large-scale master plans for the Überseestadt Bremen or the West Bund in Shanghai to urban spaces and squares such as the Magellan or Marco Polo Terraces in Hamburg's HafenCity and cultural-historical places of remembrance such as the Esterwegen Memorial. Urban open space planning for new urban quarters such as the VIERTEL ZWEI Plus in Vienna-Krieau (AT) or the development of the Industrial Park Sports Center in Suzhou (CN) round off the office's complex range of tasks.

Continuous competition wins confirm the quality of our work. Whether 1st prize for the redesign of the Meidlinger Hauptstraße pedestrian zone in Vienna (AT), 1st prize for the Bad Lauchstädt market square and for the exclusive park hotel THE FONTENAY in Hamburg or 1st prize for the South Bund in Shanghai (CN) - the success of the competitions speaks for itself.

The jury of the international book "Made in Germany - Best of Contemporary Architecture" voted WES LandschaftsArchitektur the best German landscape architecture firm. In his book "Avant Gardeners", Tim Richardson lists the firm among the 50 visionaries of contemporary landscape design.
