The practice initially specialised in projects in the industrial and research sectors, then expanded into residential and administrative developments. “Back then, I had to do something about the reputation architects had – they were generally regarded as house-builders”, recalls Günter Koschany, thinking back to the start of his career and what his motivation was.
The plan was to develop individual, high-quality buildings in close cooperation with the new owners. To marry technology with architecture in a harmonious manner. That was his ambition. The press at the time said this of him: “In his role as architect he is a master builder, and as a master builder, an aesthete.”
“Everyone has their strengths. And when they complement each other, it’s an indispensable asset for a practice!” is how Günter Koschany summarised the collaboration between the two partners in an interview in 2008.
