LENZE-LUIG 3-L-PLAN GBR
3L Architects and Industrial Designers was founded in 1989. The vision of the company's founding members was to establish an architectural firm that is driven by a holistic approach to buildings and processes. Instead of just design-oriented services, 3L provides services that include integrative solutions that consists of design, technology, ecology and economy. 3L regards the building process within the framework of holistic project management –from project development to investment, building and facility management to the continuous process of improving building products and services. 3L has realized a number of public buildings of various kinds over the last 20 years. Since 1990, 3L has been continuously involved in R&D projects in order to develop new products and processes for better buildings. In 2000 the development of the "Office 2015" project was started. Funded by Northrhine-Westfalia the 3L designers and engineers developed a new type of office building in collaboration with partners from the German and Dutch building industry. Within this project approximately 40 new innovative products and service solutions were developed in collaboration with a number of SME´s. After the R&D project had been effectually ended the 3L firm was able to realize the project. 3L has received several international awards for this demonstrated R&D work and the realized office building has been published both nationally and internationally. 3L worked on the EU-projects "homedoor" and SuRE-FIT. At the moment 3L is working on the EU-projects "Proficient" and "Design4Energy".
