A holistic approach to sustainability and climate adaptation
Schønherr has experience with a large variety of sustainability consultancy, “Climate Architecture” and green development plans.

The studio’s green development projects, biodiversity projects, climate change protection projects, sustainability projects etc., often combine larger scale urban and infrastructural development with coastal or flood protection, nature development and/or new recreative attractions.

The plans are based on a site’s narrative or the area’s cultural history and often identify synergies in between climate solutions, urban development, investment plans, innovation, green transformation, tourism, revitalization of a place or destination etc.

The projects are very often developed in dialogue with citizens, property owners, and stakeholders, before resulting in politically approved development plans.
