Hammerer Architekten, Switzerland

“Good architecture is simple, comprehensible and has a soul. Creating the body around it is a constructive task with high aesthetic and functional standards – but architecture means much more: it is communication, also discussion. A dialogue, never a monologue. Because an architect builds relationships with his work. To the place. To the environment. To the task. To the people with whom he builds and for whom he builds. And that is precisely what makes architecture something that can be intensively experienced and experienced beyond the purely economic and functional aspect – in other words, sustainable.” Hammerer Architekten is an architectural practice with offices in Aarau, Switzerland and Ludesch, Vorarlberg. The studio focuses on projects of very eclectic scales in Switzerland, Austria and Germany: single and multi-family houses, coworking, hotels, glampings, tiny houses and renovations of old alpine mayens.
