Go to website

The UTB Projektmanagement GmbH which is based in Berlin, Germany was founded in 1996. Currently, it is working with 40 employees on 30 projects in Berlin, Halle, Weimar, Dresden and Greifswald. With different promoters UTB create lodgings with different apartment types with intelligent planning and innovative technologies which ensure high energy efficiency.
UTB believes that new residential construction must be financed to a reasonable extent, be co-operative and state-subsidized. In this way, cities secure their social, functional mixes and lively neighborhoods can grow.
In 2017, UTB won the ‘Special Timber Construction Prize’ for a multi-family house in ‘Thüringer State Prize’ in Weimar for demonstrating successful contribution to compact construction in the urban area with renewable raw materials. Besides that, in 2015, UTB won both German Architecture Prize and BDA Prize Berlin (Association of German Architects) for ‘Am Lokdepot’. In 2006, UTB won the second prize of the Monumental renovation BBU for the refurbishment of the Fidicinstraße 18 building as a monument preservation project which was appreciated for the self-initiative performance of the residents.
Two main focuses of UTB are future-oriented sustainable and economical solutions and technologies for heating and electricity, and active participation of citizens, tenants, cooperative members, migrants and squatters.
The demo case in Berlin, is an apartment block “Wohnscheibe” which is a key part of the redevelopment of the sub-centre Berlin-Lichtenrade. UTB within ‘Old Maltery Lichterade’ project plans 200 apartments in mixed ownership. The aim is for the residential area to be primarily organized cooperatively. A part of the flats should be cheap to rent with residential entitlement and be made available to social housing and social care institutions.
Cities and communities in Germany and Europe are facing major social, economic and environmental changes as a result of globalization, socio-demographic change and climatic changes.  The UTB would like to actively shape these changes with all project participants.

Rijnboutt puts together a multidisciplinary project team for each assignment. We have all disciplines in the field of architecture, urban design, landscape, sustainability and heritage.
In large-scale, complex or long-term projects, we look after the qualitative interests and spatial quality. We guide complex design processes through workshops and symposia.
A city is not made of stone. It is a complex organism full of life. She is constantly changing. She is growing. Used differently. By always new people. Rijnboutt sees that complexity very clearly. That is why Rijnboutt never builds a building. But always a piece of the city. With vocus on the past and future. Environment and function. Everyone who will be there, stay and go again. We can do that by working from multidisciplinary teams. With junior and senior architects, urban planners and landscape architects. Combining different talents and our craft results in distinctive projects. Which not only have great architectural value, but also make an important contribution to the development of the city as a whole.
