Julia Tophof & Norbert Hemprich
Influenced by teachers such as James Stirling, Josef Paul Kleihues, Klaus Theo Brenner and Hans Kollhoff, Norbert Hemprich and Julia Tophof have been successfully pursuing their attitude of unagitated urban architecture since 1992. In 2000, Hemprich Tophof Architects built the striking high-rise building along Straße des 17. Juni in Berlin for Daimler; in 2008, the “Torhaus” residential and commercial building was built in Bremen. The success in the Schinkelplatz/Niederlagstraße competition is one of the most important in her career.
