The architectural agency léonwohlhage was founded in 1987 by Hilde Léon and Konrad Wohlhage. Today, Hilde Léon leads a team of 30 employees, together with the two associates Peter Czekay and Tilman Fritzsche. The agency has been making a creative contribution to architecture and urban culture for more than twentyfive years. The office’s reputation is based on a wide range of successful projects like the Schwabengalerie in Stuttgart and the ‘Lemon’, a striking hovering office building in Berlin. Many projects are the result of successful competition designs: The HTWK University Leipzig opened its new library with an adjoining media centre. In 2012 the extension for the Bavarian state parliament was completed: An architecturally prominent building integrated in a historical context which even sets new standards with its energy balance.
