Application for registration in the list of architects (specializations of interior design, landscape architecture, urban planning)

One of the following protected professional titles may only be held by those who are entered under the respective designation in the list of architects of the Lower Saxony Chamber of Architects, the corresponding list in another federal state or the list of external service providers:

  • Interior designer
  • Landscape Architect
  • City Planner

The same applies to word links with one of the job titles or similar designations. The relevant regulations can be found in particular in Section 1 of the NArchtG.

In order to protect consumers, this ensures that only sufficiently qualified persons practise the profession under the professional title and that they comply with certain professional rules. However, such protection of the professional title makes it necessary for the Chamber of Architects to require the invitees to prove their qualifications, usually by:

- the completion of a study programme of at least 3 years,

- completing a professional activity of at least 2 years

- the attendance of certain training measures.

With the registration you become a member of the Chamber.

Type of employment

The list of architects is entered in one of the following four types of employment, depending on your activity:

  • self-employed
  • Construction-industrial
  • employed
  • official
