For five generations, the family owned and operated, full-service development company has been a custodian of architectural and technical tradition, building properties with timeless designs throughout Germany. Ralf Schmitz’s holistic approach to development, managing all elements from concept, design, construction, to maintenance, allows the company to maintain a standard of excellence built upon an extensive body of knowledge accrued over its generations.
Over the course of 150 years, the Schmitz family has successfully developed over 2,500 properties, cultivating a storied history of refined building design that reflects architectural craftsmanship and engineering. The company fosters long-standing relationships with the finest artisans of their generation, all of whom share the company’s devotion to the highest standards of craftsmanship.

Founded in 2008, Sebastian Treese Architekten has designed numerous residential projects in Berlin, Hamburg and Düsseldorf on behalf of Ralf Schmitz, for whom it has worked exclusively since 2013. Exercising respect for local architectural traditions and for the historical development of their urban setting, the practice uses the transformation and compositional arrangement of the chosen materials to create buildings with an unmistakable signature.
