WKM Landschaftsarchitekten

The basis of our design is a sensitive development of a site and its context. Character of the place and natural qualities must be emphasised. The aim is to understand the nature in a pervasive way and to integrate it with art which essentially determines the design approach.

Full commitment to this concept with responding to the ecological issues, social aspects and economic concerns leads us to the simple and clear ideas in which the nature is at the centre, and creates urban spaces which offer the simplicity and tranquillity to the citizens.

The founder of the studio WKM, Roland Weber, had been working as a freelancer garden architect since 1936, and over six decades he designed more than 800 gardens, including numerous private gardens, administrative and industrial buildings.

Back in the 1950s, Roland Weber was a famous landscape architects in Germany, and his collaboration with world-renowned architects such as Helmut Hentrich, Egon Eiermann, Marcel Breuer, Philip Johnson and Richard Neutra and also well-known artists such as Norbert Kricke, Max Ernst and Jean Dubuffet, can be considered as one of the highlights in his professional life.

‘WKM Landscape architects’ is a long-established office of Roland Weber (since 1992) in partnership with Klaus Klein and Rolf Maas, and in 2019 Sebastian Riesop, the former head of ‘Riesop Landscape Architecture’, has joined the office as a partner. WKM is today a landscape studio which still committed to the Roland Weber’s design principles as his legacy and has won several national awards over the last years.
