What do you look for in good architecture?

Modern design, the fascination of the as yet unseen?



Welcome to Georg Döring Architects.

Welcome to
Georg Döring Architects.

Our architecture is like our firm: simplicity, clarity, honesty. Yet at the same time surprising. Our approach is future-oriented. Yet is formed by the ideas of classical modernism from the early 20th Century. Our methods are in the most positive sense extrovert, yet still integrate the old with the new.

Solid elements combine with experimental details of the highest quality to generate a fascinating tension, which in turn generates a unique expressiveness. The client’s special character and his economic coordinates form the basis for our open and future-oriented architecture.

A Breath of fresh Air

The new construction of housing and business premises in Aachen

A building with three different uses is being constructed in the historical centre of Aachen. This will create 24 residential units, 2 office units and a large retail space on the ground floor. Its external appearance reacts in line with the local situation as regards urban development, transporting it into the 21st century through a modern, three-dimensional framework facade.

We are stronger together


A 3-floor residential building is being developed for an assembly in a quiet side street of the Quellenbusch district. The compact, meandering building structure forms a courtyard situation with the opposing existing building. The “Villa Pillebach” has 14 different sizes of housing unit and an inward-facing courtyard to form a community space with a large garden area.

A residential house gets a extention developed completly as a wood construction. Including the fifth facade, the roof. The structural shell interprets the roof shape of the existing builing in a fascinating way new. Towards the the court space the wooden facade, which transfers fluent into the roof, is mostly closed. The connecting passage functions at once as generous, new main entrance space and a link between new and old. Two cuts define the entrance of the garage and the balcony at the upper floor.

Air and Light

Bungalow renovation in Erkrath

In the heart of Erkrath, a bungalow dating back to the 70s is being completely renovated. What’s more, to let more air and light into the building, the roof is being raised and the side of the building facing the garden will be generously opened up in the form of wrap-around glazing. The entire floor plan is also being redesigned in order to transform the house to fit with current needs and technology.

Turnin old into new

Housing and business premises in Düsseldorf - Düsseltal

The listed building, located in the villa district, was built in 1907 and is used as housing and business premises. An extensive refurbishment of the existing flats and the façade is currently underway. Two new residential units, designed as maisonette flats, will be created on the attic floor, providing a generous living space on the attic floor and in the space beneath the pitched roof, which were previously empty.

With internal and external appeal

Multi-family house in Düsseldorf-Flingern

A multi-family dwelling with five full-floor apartments provides an extremely generous living standard in the city centre of Düsseldorf. One very special and sustained exclusive feature is the heat generation system based on geothermal and solar-thermal energy and the separate apartment station for decentral energy distribution for heating and warm water.

The northern heights

Detached House in Delmenhorst

Concept for a detached house with one full floor and a penthouse.
The shape of the building is derived from the location of the property and from the orientation of the building on the cardinal points. The building opens up in the garden to the south and is closed to the north.
The penthouse juts out over the ground floor and defines the entrance to the building.

The courage to leave gaps

Multi-Family dwelling in Düsseldorf

A new multi-family dwelling with five residential units is being built on the outskirts of Düsseldorf . The characteristic feature here is the brick façade, which has been built in selected areas so as to include gaps. The windows located behind these offer additional opportunities for lighting and ventilation within the rooms. In doing so, the external façade adheres to the prescribed creative stipulations of the window openings.

More families in the city

Multi-Family dwelling in Düsseldorf - Derendorf

A multi-family dwelling is being built near the city centre which contains various sizes of flats, offering space for families both big and small.

It’s not only the residents who have a lift at their disposal, cars also gain access to the underground car park by means of a lift.

Courage comes at the beginning of action,

happiness at its end.
