about us...


ICE - ideas for contemporary environments was founded in 2007 by Ulrich Kirchhoff, Louise Low and Claudia Wigger as an architectural design consultant with its headquarter in Hong Kong. The office has been highly awarded and published since. Our milestones include the 40 under 40 award for the most outstanding young designer in Greater China in 2007 and the Bloomberg Asia Pacific Award for the best mixed use development in Vietnam. The office has been growing steadily with representations in Shenzhen, China, Berlin, Germany, Detroit, USA and Hanoi, Vietnam.


It is our belief that the best design solution is based on the best ideas which add value to the project. The ideas range from aesthetic, image, spatial, social to functional, achieving tangible, quantifiable excellence in all these areas. We are offering to our clients strategic design solutions from urban planning to architecture to interior and product design, for commercial and public projects.

We work from the start at a highly strategic level with our clients to ensure that the project is pushed to its highest potential, conducting research and analysis to create a unique identity, public presence and market positioning for all our projects. We believe in teamwork and a transparent and productive relationship between client and consultant in order to achieve results with the most tangible benefits for the project.
