Concept and project development
ADBC_ synthesises requirements and proposals by all stakeholders into a concise concept. We build concepts by sketches, diagrams, plans or models to communicate what can be done, what should be done and where.
Mix of usages, building volumes, connections, passage frequencies, sequences of public and private spaces, target groups, competitors, cost and revenue – in relation to the project: „hard” and “soft” facts get woven together. That way decisions are made on solid grounds.
Orientation / genius loci
Genius loci contains atmosphere and aura of a place and its vicinity. Here the society’s memory, perception and interpretation merge. In order to form a project with character and value the Genius loci is defined and merged with new intentions.
A new general orientation is deducted from here by analogies and sketches. Orientation and concept together form the programmatic basis for further development.
Architecture and application planning
Prospects, preliminary or full building permit: we offer the planning package tailored for your project:
basic analysis, preliminary design, schematic design, application planning, leading construction details, coordination – and also:
The architecture manager is the agent of positioning. He makes sure that the project vision is translated into the actual project through continuous follow-up of those conceptual core characteristics derived from orientation and concept.
Value-add oriented steering of real estate portfolios
ADBC_ synthesises deep experience by managing and having managed more than 100 properties - be it retail, office, residential or mixed-use.

Ambiguity, doubts or simply lack of enthusiasm in the middle of a project?
Based on experience ADBC_ analyses options efficiently and quickly. Well-grounded comments on strengths & weaknesses, opportunities & risks will deliver the necessary starting points for intervention.
Specialised focus: mixed-use-projects with a focal point on retail
Investable retail architecture is based on effective junctions and visibility – internally and externally. Attractive destinations, tenant-mix, permeability and quality of stay together form the core of successful places.
Above and below retail areas additional layers for parking, working and living need to be positioned in a way that the traditional mix of functions of the European city is preserved or re-installed. Such projects are highly complex not only due to overlapping layers and usages. We apply specific experience about the crossing of operational requirements with urban planning requirements.
These kinds of scenarios have been thought through and negotiated for > 20 inner-city retail-destinations by us through own concepts as well as through briefings for architects.
