leit-werk, founded in 1999, offers a new form of design practice in which architects, designers and urban planners work together in a transdisciplinary organisation.
Our conceptual, process-orientated approach and constant exploration of the relationship between spatial, economic, cultural and social parameters lead to innovative schemes, which go beyond the general field of architecture and design. leit-werk's projects range from urban and architectural planning to interior and surface design within public as well as private areas.
The practice is an integral part of an established network of consultants and experts from related fields, often operating within larger consortia and functioning as a think tank for various organisations.
The practice is run by Managing Director Henrik Rothe, Dip Arch AADip Dip Des, who founded the company in 1999. Henrik developed expertise in urban design and airport planning. He studied at the Architectural Association School of Architecture in London and received The President's Medal at RIBA in 2000 for his diploma project. Prior to his arrival in the UK, he gained a diploma in interior design at University of Art & Design, Halle, Germany. Henrik is a tutor at the MArch course at University of Brighton and is a visiting tutor at the AA School of Architecture and Metropolitan University London.
