Storch Landscape Architecture plans open-air facilities in all work phases according to HOAI (German Fee Structure for Architects and Engineers) such as:
Project planning of public places, gardens, parks and playgrounds, conversion of old sites, natural water development, river and open-air swimming pools, leisure facilities, planning of open-air facilities on public buildings, institutes, educational institutions and residential buildings.
We draw up open space planning and urban development expert reports, feasibility studies and studies, participate in competitions, public offer by tender – as well as other procedures and multiple contracts. Since the foundation of our office we have received over 40 prizes and awards. The office has 11 modern workstations.
The office was founded in 2004 by landscape architect Robert Storch. He studied landscape architecture at the Technical University in Dresden from 1996 to 2002. He wrote his diploma in 2002 under Prof. Hermann Kokenge. Storch Landscape Architecture works in the whole range of landscape architecture and urban design. The main focus is on work in educational institutions, sports and play areas, parks and gardens, projects in and around the water as well as residential environment design.
We realize our projects mostly in interdisciplinary teams together with renowned architects, urban planners, engineers and artists. Sustainable, individual and user-oriented thinking is the primary intention of Storch Landschaftsarchitektur. It is particularly important to feel and bring out the special character of a place.
Redesign of the Ulsteraue near the city and the adjacent areas in Geisa, 1st prize competition 2011
Riverine landscapes have their very special charm. The Ulster floodplain in the town of Geisa has been extensively renaturalised and upgraded. The result is a unique landscape with curved watercourses and gravel islands, which are subject to the dynamic processes of a river landscape and create uniquely beautiful play areas. If you are looking for a break from cycling, there are sunbathing platforms along the cycle path on the Ulsteraue and Mühlgraben. A small seating area has been integrated directly into the riverbank area.

Redesign of a playground for all age groups at Friedenstrasse Dresden
In a residential quarter with many children, an individually designed playground enlivens the offer for families. Two separate play areas for children in different age groups were desired. A so-called “action band” divides the outdoor area and is used as a roller and skater track. A large climbing area made of wood offers a variety of play possibilities and also seating and a shady green area was thought of. The playground enjoys great popularity.

LEIBNIZ INSTITUTE FOR ECOLOGICAL AND REGIONAL DEVELOPMENT
Redesign of the inner courtyard and outdoor facilities at the IÖR Dresden, European GreenBuilding Award 2012
A harmoniously designed inner courtyard now connects the library and the event hall at the Leibnitz Institute and also creates a green recreational area. In the midst of flowering shrubs and grasses, concrete seating elements invite you to linger and at the same time structure the courtyard area. Based on the structure of the buildings, a clear open-air concept was implemented that grows and enchants as a lively inner courtyard through a conscious selection of leaf structures and flower colors.
