Office

NE—AR stands for Nixdorff Etchegorry — Architecture Research, an international brand specialized in the fields of architecture and design. NE—AR is based in Frankfurt, Germany and led by Lars Nixdorff and Luis Etchegorry.
 
NE—AR is an office interested in architectural possibilities. Setup as a platform for exchange within a local and global context, our approach mixes keen analysis and formal experimentation into uniquely responsive designs. Thus we perform as an integrated design environment forming clusters of architects, designers, thinkers, consultants, project partners and clients. NE—AR envisions an optimistic yet critical view towards the world by researching its trends and behaviors. This enables our firm to understand research as a generator of new concepts and ideas.

NE—AR offers cutting-edge design and a methodological approach to all our products. Our design strategy focuses on an integrated approach, which results into an added value to the recipient. The resulting design is materialized conceptualization that is able to dialogue with contemporary life and society. This is possible due to a process set-up that hosts and facilitates a platform for the integration of client´s ideas, consultants and project partners form the first instance and throughout every project.

NE—AR has considerable experience and knowledge in complex assignments in the field of architecture, urbanism and interior design, throughout various scales and stage levels. These ranges from product design to urban master plans, through small private refurbishments, residential, retail and infrastructural projects.
 
Another NE—AR focus lies in temporary conceptual work –exhibition and installation design- allowing us to put into practice some of our research ideas in order to apply them to our future projects. NE—AR offers an international professional background which is embedded within the latest contemporary discourse. The high performance of our work derives from more than a decade of working experience on various projects from concept to realization, achieving a high level of internationally recognized design excellence. Our firm can offer an excellent insight into overseas building projects and collaborates successfully with local and international consultants. For each development, we facilitate a constant dialogue between the design teams and consultants to effectively lead design developments marked by a seamless flow of ideas, strategies and solutions pertaining to all aspects of the project large and small.
 
Our international background enables us to understand, assimilate, adapt and react to social, economic, cultural and aesthetic different realities. In a world where communication is at stake, we envision a differentiated response while at the same time delivering an integrated, synthetic product able to cope with its contextual and contemporary necessities. Thus, we perform as pragmatic as required, yet as elaborate and sophisticated as possible, consolidating NE—AR as the alternative architectural solution.
