Pleasure in exceptional assignments

We have been architects and general planers. Since 1922.

At home in Switzerland, active throughout Europe. The demands made of buildings are becoming ever more complex, whether we look at hospitals, laboratories, airports or residential buildings. For every project we assemble the best possible specific team drawn from our roughly 300 specialists and generalists. Our solutions are tailor-made. And enriched by one essential element: good design.

People the focus of everything we do. 

We put people at the heart of what we do, in our architecture and in the company. That shapes our culture and the way we work together, in teams and with our partners and clients. Networks are important to us - within the company in order to put the best team together from across all our offices, and outside of it too, in order to get the best cooperation partner on board for each specific project. We are familiar with many different ways of working with external architects and specialists.

It requires strong internal values, and everyone must know the things that are important to us. To enable the whole project team to pull together.
