That takes into consideration every input and action—no matter how large or small. We bring together lifestyle, living, leisure, tourism, audience development, event management, property marketing and project identity, and how it becomes tangible as an environment through behavior, activity, curatorship, design features, streetscaping, and communications. To create a unique place, we link everything together. The brand promise with the user experience. We provide branding and place-making services for projects in various stages from pre-development strategies to post-development applications, ranging from the rebranding of existing urban districts to creating new brands for mixed-use destinations, corporate environments, commercial office buildings and retail.

Where design blends planning, architecture, branding, lifestyle, streetscapes, landscapes, interiors, art and placemaking into one. Living, working shopping, playing. One smile. One world. One community. We collaborate and work with you to develop complete worlds. Living, breathing worlds that work and play, and evolve. We realize them and make them real.

We are never cookie-cutter. Because we collaborate with people from different countries and backgrounds, our design process is fresh, innovative and sensitive to different cultures. We always create work you will be proud of and proud to be a part of. The Klingmann difference is the bringing together of three functions into designs that create vital, vibrant communities.

Planning influences branding. Branding influences designing. Everything works. And everything works together. A boutique that thinks big. Your partner. Every step of the way. Instead you are a part of a collaborative process. We partner. We hit deadlines. We return phone calls. Planning, branding, design. A world of experience. Time and again we build global communities our partners are proud of.

Through her extensive professional experience in New York, the Middle East, and China, academic research at internationally renowned institutions, and authorship of her book, Brandscapes: Architecture in the Experience Economy MIT PRESS , Anna has developed a unique combination of branding, urban planning, landscape design, placemaking and architecture along with the ability to design compelling experiences for residential communities and complex mixed-use developments.

She received her PhD. She began her career in New York where she worked for commercial architectural offices. In addition to having lectured widely on the intersection of urbanism, branding, landscaping, and placemaking, she taught at Cornell University, Columbia University, the University of Pennsylvania, the ETH in Zurich, the University of Arts in Berlin, and the University of Texas at Austin.

Inspired by the potential of architecture to connect commerce, culture, and community, she founded KLINGMANN as an interdisciplinary consultancy in in New York that plans, brands and designs global mixed-use destinations. By integrating multiple scales and disciplines into a holistic approach, her work is aimed at developing nuanced expressions of urbanity that are tailored to the needs and means of specific regions and cultural contexts. Sustainability is understood here as a multidimensional and heterogeneous process, which integrates the fields of ecology, economics, sociology and culture in a dynamic cross-disciplinary palimpsest depending on each context.



Small Arrow As Anna Klingmann shows in this well-researched, and well-written book, brand and experience management are at the forefront of contemporary architectural theory and practice. Indeed, viewing buildings and architects as brands that provide experiences can provide a new and fresh perspective for the entire field of architecture. This insightful book provides a much-needed critical perspective on this emerging trend. In the twenty-first century, we must learn to look at cities not as skylines but as brandscapes and at buildings not as objects but as advertisements and destinations. In the new environment of brandscapes, buildings are not about where we work and live but who we imagine ourselves to be. In Brandscapes, Anna Klingmann looks critically at the controversial practice of branding by examining its benefits, and considering the damage it may do.
