Schwarzenbacher Struber Architekten is an architecture office based in Salzburg, Austria, originally founded by Wolfgang Schwarzenbacher in 1993. From the very start the studio has worked on projects in the public sector, with a special focus on sustainable building. Several projects have won awards for timber architecture and sustainability.
Their design philosophy aims to fulfil the needs of each individual project, focusing on adapting the architecture to its given surroundings, letting function determine form, and choosing authentic materials that enable buildings to age timelessly. Architecture should not only meet spacial requirements, but go beyond what is asked and offer additional value to its users. This way of designing spaces provides benefits for cities and its people.
Designing and supervising a wide range of projects – from family houses, refurbishments, to large-scale urban developments – continually challenges the team and keeps everyone open-minded. Each project is discussed with the whole team, which opens up new perspectives and creative angles, brings clarity and adds value to every aspect of the project.
