Among the competition successes that have been achieved in recent years are the Historical Museum in Frankfurt a.M., the "Kaiserkarree" office and commercial building in Karlsruhe and the Stadtmuseum Stuttgart. Other important projects for our office include the Duale Hochschule Lörrach (2008), Kloster Hegne Marianum in Allensbach (2009), Kunstmuseum Ravensburg (2009) and the extension of the Diözesankurie in Rottenburg a.N. (2010) can be traced back to competition successes.

The architectural office léonwohlhage was founded in 1987 by Hilde Léon and Konrad Wohlhage. Today Hilde Léon leads a team of about 30 employees, together with the two associates Peter Czekay and Tilman Fritzsche.
Since its foundation, the office has made a creative contribution to architecture and urban culture and ensures professional implementation. The reputation of léonwohlhage is based on various successful projects such as the award-winning Schwabengalerie in Stuttgart and the strikingly floating office building on Berlin's Halensee. Many projects are the result of successful competition designs: the HTWK Leipzig has received a much acclaimed new library with an attached media centre.
