The office OUTSIDE! Landschaftsarchitekten was founded in Hamburg in 1999. The office owner is the freelance landscape architect Gottfried Rzeźnik-Neder. It is located in Hamburg-Wilhelmsburg. The team consists of four colleagues and has extensive technical equipment.
In our new premises in the former administration building of the "Palmin" works Hamburg with its industrial Fläir in Jaffestraße 6, we have arrived well and are always happy to welcome you.
What does architecture mean to us? Architecture says, from the Greek origin the "First Art" or the "First Craft". It involves a creative act and thus combines aesthetics, design aspirations and manual craftsmanship.
"It is important to me that my employees and I have extensive practical experience! Anyone who has built something outdoors themselves can accurately assess their creativity and use it knowledgeably in the planning process." Gottfried Rzeźnik-Neder
The office's work focuses on object planning:
- residential environment improvement measures in housing construction
- outdoor facility design for new buildings
- public open spaces and play areas, parks and green corridors
- play and recreational areas for all ages
- schools and daycare facilities
We pay special attention to intensive tenant and citizen participation processes. To find out individual wishes and needs and to consider them within the scope of possibilities (financing, economic efficiency, spatial conditions) in the planning is NOT a contradiction to artistic freedom. If people are satisfied and our facilities still look appealing and are accepted even after years, we have achieved our most important goal.
The goal of any planning is to recognize the potential of the place and to achieve a harmonious unity between the place and the users. "We don't plan for us or to make us happen, we plan for those who experience and use the space every day!" We have all age groups in mind.
- BARRIER FREEDOM
is always writ large with us. Often it is only small details that make life harder or easier.
- RESCUE AREAS
The topic of escape routes and areas are always present with us and are integrated into our plans as inconspicuously as possible.
- DRAINAGE AND FLOODING
We have developed special expertise in drainage (approval) planning and the development of flood proofs. Skillful design of flow paths and stormwater detention can help prevent major damage. Fees for stormwater disposal, which are now demanded in varying amounts in communities and cities, can be minimized. In this regard, intensive cooperation with architects and building services and their advice and professional support is possible.
Playgrounds and exercise areas for all ages are particularly fun. And sometimes - depending on the size of the project and the wishes of the client - we work together with various artists to develop individual offers that are precisely adapted to the location. Exciting movement parcours with different materials (sandstone, stainless steel, climbing nets, wood) are developed and produced. When developing the playground equipment and play landscapes, we pay special attention to the promotion of movement motor skills and the delivery of haptic experiences, in which group experience and individuality complement each other. We pay attention to DIN-compliant, stable, durable and low-maintenance designs.
Our many years of experience in planning and implementation, in creative and individual brainstorming let exciting experience spaces arise, during the development of which manufacturing and follow-up costs are already kept in mind. Thus, cost security, functionality and uniqueness, but also longevity find the best possible connection.
