We turn properties into brands

Branding, development and implementation of real estate projects

As designers, architects and general contractors, we are driven to make real estate projects successful. Our comprehensive range of services aims to take a holistic view of projects and carry them out profitably with our multidisciplinary team – from marketing and design to turnkey construction. The idea of a “building as a brand” plays a central role in our work. With our years of experience in brand development, we also see enormous potential for the real estate industry to turn properties into attractive and desirable brands for investors and tenants.

Our approach: “M hoch 3” – Menschen (people) – Marken (brands) – Mehrwerte (added value)

Immobilien und Real Estate: Menschen, Marken, Mehrwerte Schwitzke

Brands serve as orientation anchors and convey values with which we can identify. What values, what value proposition should a property or a neighbourhood convey? What needs are met and what kind of attitude to life should it convey? Which users should be addressed?

The brand identity forms the foundation of a property development, which runs through the entire project. Based on social trends, we identify the basic needs of users and the human requirements and develop a unique position and brand personality from this, which is then reflected in the architectural vision and planning through to turnkey implementation.

This process creates the foundation for the long-term success of the property.

Brand Development

To make a property desirable, it needs a unique personality that can be felt and communicated. Together with our clients, we develop a sound strategy to position the project correctly and formulate a corresponding vision. On this basis, we develop the brand and its personality, from the name and logo to the visual identity and communication in the space. Once the brand personality is in place, it is time to market the property. We develop strategic measures to make the project known and popular, and to win fans during the planning and implementation phase.

Architecture & Interior Design

As architects, we offer all services in the fields of architecture, interior design and general planning for the holistic design of properties and neighbourhood development projects. Private and public, national and international. First, we analyse the structural conditions and the urban context as well as the catchment area of the property. Based on the requirements and needs of the future users, we provide the appropriate mix of sectors and tenants. We then develop an architectural vision on this basis that makes the content and new brand personality tangible for the user. For our clients, we cover all services of service phases 1 to 9 of the HOAI – whether for the healthcare sector, office, gastronomy and hotel industry or retail.
