ZappeArchitekten is a Berlin based studio for architecture founded in 1995. Clarity, comprehension and calm are the foundation of the studio’s mindset and are equally reflected in the architecture it produces.

After a lot of years of running the studio with several partners and under a different name, Dipl.-Ing. Stefan Zappe finally took on the solely lead of the team in 2010. HelloMe consulted this process of repositioning and developed a simple corporate design that reflects the studio’s sophisticated attitude. The basis for this is the custom typeface ZappeGrotesk. It is a clear Sans serif typeface that refers to an old version of Drescher Grotesk designed by Arno Drescher in the 1930ties. The glyph set features various simple shaped characters and several alternates. The typeface is used in only one weight in a limited number of sizes throughout all media.
