PARTNER SHIP DESIGN was founded in early 1991 by the architects Kai Bunge and Siegfried Schindler. Based on sound experience in shipbuilding and design, the company quickly became known for creative designs, reliable performance, and on-time delivery. Its portfolio grew rapidly as the company became involved in the development of new cruise concepts, GAP design, interior design, and project supervision.
In autumn 2017, long-time employees Silke Förster, Stefan Seidenfaden, and Timo Hogestraat joined Siegfried Schindler and Kai Bunge as Junior Partners and Managing Directors; thus, the company is well prepared for the next generation and fit for future tasks.
PARTNER SHIP DESIGN’s headquarters are located in the center of the port city of Hamburg close to the scenic Alster River.
The PARTNER SHIP DESIGN team currently consists of 5 partners, 41 employees, and 3 freelancers representing 10 different nationalities.
The experienced and motivated crew is made up of specialists such as interior designers, architects, technicians, and 3-D designers.
The founding architects Kai Bunge and Siegfried Schindler, their Junior Partners, and the whole team share the same vision: to create customized architecture and interior design for cruise ship passengers through designs that radiate a quality lifestyle, a passion for life, and sensuousness.
As one of the world’s leading ship design companies, PARTNER SHIP DESIGN produces harmoniously unified, high-quality compositions to create unique ships.
By choosing select materials, colours, shapes, and structures, the designs of PARTNER SHIP DESIGN reflect the spirit of variation, joy, and a zest for life. These characteristic creations are the result of free artistic thinking combined with technical know-how, experience, and a feeling for harmony and proportion.
