We are concerned with an architecture that is concise and personal. An architecture with the ability to develop its own character. At the same time obvious and surprising. We see our work as a continuous search for the ideal and at the same time as a reflection of the relationships.

For us, architecture consists in the synthesis of heterogeneous goals in the form of a coherent form. This form always contains diversity, treats it in its own individual way and develops its specific quality from it. Understandable and hidden. The context is always an essential feature.

In the development of our ideas, we rely on strategies that lead to the inner cohesion of opposites with empirical logic, clarity and intuition. “Complexity and contradiction” lead via a both/and to a more deeply founded result.

@ Jim Rakete

We are architects for private, institutional and public clients. Our tasks are comprehensive and holistic, from urban planning to interior design.

We have been successfully active for over 25 years and work in our owner-managed architectural office as a team with long-standing, experienced as well as young, committed employees. Supplemented by a well-coordinated team of engineers, specialists and site managers.

We work together passionately and with pleasure. This is reflected in our mutual appreciation and in the fact that our relationships last a very long time. Our clients trust us, most of them for decades. We are reliable partners and make your project ours, your goals ours.

We have excellent experience in residential construction and have designed and realised exceptional hotels and administrative buildings over the last few years. The area of conversion and refurbishment as well as buildings for the public sector complete our spectrum. To date, we have realised over 2,500 flats for a society in transition. Intergenerational, flexible and sustainable. We work to ensure that housing is affordable as a basic need.

What exactly is sustainable construction is something we think about a lot together with our specialists. It is essential for us and shapes our thinking. For us, this topic has several facets: an innovative architectural design on the levels of open space, urban development, structural engineering, materials, living and working space.

We keep our social and societal responsibility in mind. We plan and build ecologically, whether monolithic or thermally insulated. We strive for the social sustainability of buildings that are suitable for everyday use, flexible and adaptable to changing needs. We pursue economy with a focused eye on construction costs, operating costs and efficient designs. Quality, efficiency and durability are our credo.
