Hands-on architect


A whole new way of being an architect has slowly developped in our practice. We focus on renovations, in which we can alongside the owner do demolishing and deconstructing work ourselves, during which we develop the architectural project. We get intimate with the building and build professional and personal relationships. This allows the owner to discover a new dimension of his house and for the architect to spend less time drawing to take decisions. It is along the lines of Patrick Bouchain’s «Permanence architecturale», but instead of living its hands-on working. Discover more on the dedicated website (in german) umbaubegleiter.ch ︎︎︎
