About Ramboll Studio Dreiseitl
At Ramboll Studio Dreiseitl we believe that a vibrant public realm is at the heart of liveable cities.  It creates communities, brings people in touch with nature and is a source of learning, pleasure, health and wellness.

Our well-tried approach puts collaboration, hands-on public participation and cross-agency coordination as the first step in arriving at innovative solutions that generate civic pride.

Whether visible or invisible, water plays an essential role in the vitality of urban life. We solve multiple urban challenges by creating desirable green spaces often in marginal land while at the same time solving storm water flooding problems, improving water quality and thereby creating harmonious blue-green solutions, increasing also the resilience of urban areas.

We are grounded visionaries; we do not just conceptualise solutions, we take them from visioning through detailed design to the management of construction and project commissioning. We combine cutting-edge skills in landscape architecture, urban design, urban hydrology, civil engineering and ecology to create special and unique public spaces in which water management infrastructure is an aesthetic part of the amenity. Technology becomes transparent, a beautiful designed feature where landscape and water are fully integrated to create highly desirable living experiences.
Our passion and philosophy is founded on our European heritage, honed on projects all over the world and delivered by our multicultural teams in Germany, Singapore, China, the Nordic countries and the Middle East.
