SNOW is named after the cardinal points, South - North - East – West. At the beginning of every creative process, the object is limited to its orientation to the sun and the cardinal directions. Each point of the compass has its own spiritual effectiveness, which is incorporated into the creative process.

SNOW ARCHITEKTUR emerged out of a three-person student collective in 2012 and grew constantly since then. Meanwhile, the SNOW family consists of 31 employees working in two locations, Innsbruck and Carinthia. Despite many changes and the constant growth, the ideals of the student collective have not been lost. Open communication with space for personal development of the individual team members, learning from each other and expanding horizons together are the cornerstones of the unmistakable SNOW spirit.

The team of SNOW ARCHITEKTUR supervises, plans and realizes a wide range of projects. This includes, for example, new buildings and additions to existing buildings as well as gastronomy buildings and projects in the hotel and residential sector - from architecture and interior design to construction management.

SNOW is focused on creating individual architecture that is in harmony with its surroundings, that is realized in a way that conserves as many resources as possible, and that showcases the respective craft. SNOW ARCHITEKTUR's motivation is to create unique spaces for individual people, which at the same time reflect their own architectural values and aspirations to the outside world. Therefore, a close cooperation with the client throughout the entire design process is particularly important to the young architects.

“Our diverse collective of characters provides the foundation for the creative process.
We combine quality craftsmanship with innovative design - even beyond the core field of architecture.
Our economic thinking and collaborative actions give rise to individual, valuable architecture and diverse ideas, which lead to functional solutions with a passion for aesthetics, feel and craftsmanship.
Through the conscious use of honest, regional materials and respectful treatment of existing buildings, comprehensive concepts with attention to detail are created.”


"To me, architecture means emotion in every sense of the word. Feeling spaces, being touched by them and thereby feeling architecture is what matters to me.''

As a native of Upper Austria, he is deeply rooted in his love for craftsmanship and wood as a building material. Influenced by his family's professional background, he found his way to the College of Building Technology for Timber Construction in Hallein and later to jobs in carpentry, joinery, installation and timber construction before finally studying architecture at the University of Innsbruck. Already during his studies in 2012 he founded the architecture office that is now SNOW ARCHITEKTUR with two of his fellow students. The student collective was always driven by promoting the strengths of the individual characters. Since then, a lot has changed: the other two founding members have started their own businesses in the fields of photography and visualization, and Bmst Ing. Thomas Krämer, BSc has further expanded S.N.O.W. Planungs und Projektmanagement GmbH. Nevertheless, the ideals of the student collective have been retained.
