About us

From the very beginning, our work has focused on building with wood and the relevance of sustainable building for future-oriented architecture. We develop simple solutions for complex issues according to the given construction task. In doing so, we use technology to support the potential of nature rather than define it. As architects, energy consultants and experts in circular construction, we develop healthy, natural and effective architecture for intelligent buildings.

Wood construction

We are trained woodworkers with a special connection to wood as a building material. Wood has unique characteristics that make it highly versatile. With its humidity-regulating properties, it also has a positive effect on the indoor climate. With the rapid technological progress of the past few years, wood can now even be used as the main building material in high-rise construction. We take advantage of the entire range of economic and ecological benefits this renewable, natural building material has to offer in our architecture. Especially in times of increasing resource scarcity, we believe that wood is the building material of the future.

Cradle to cradle/circular construction

For many years, we have been concerned with the issue of availability and use of the limited resources of our planet. More than 50% of our global resources are consumed in the construction and operation of buildings. The intelligent use of building materials and energy is therefore a great opportunity for future-oriented construction. For this reason, we plan buildings that also generate energy, rather than just consuming it. And we use materials and designs that ensure the long-term value of the resources used. As pioneers of circular construction in Germany, we integrate this potential into our architectural projects.

Building culture

Every building has a long-term impact on its surroundings as well as a social impact. A building must therefore actively make a positive contribution. It should be progressive and forward-thinking. Following a contextual and local design approach, we develop architecture with all participants as equal partners, finding solutions that create identities and are understood and accepted. Targeted participation is an intrinsic part of our work. With this approach, architecture can become firmly embedded within building culture.


We are a member of the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB) and the AktivPlus e.V. and Cradle to Cradle e.V. associations.
