Holzer Kobler Architekturen was formed in Zurich in 2004 by Barbara Holzer and Tristan Kobler; another studio was opened in Berlin in 2012. The office operates internationally, covering a broad spectrum of activities from urban planning to architecture, from scenography to exhibition curatorship. A multidisciplinary team comprising architects, designers, graphic artists and curators and the collaboration with a tightly knit network encompassing business, research and culture shapes its special approach to projects.
The visual diversity of the projects the company has worked on stems from its conviction to find a solution specific to each task and location that brings together past, present and future and reinterprets the whole. Holzer Kobler Architekturen has never taken an interest in propagating a particular design language as its own trademark style, preferring instead to focus on approaching each design afresh and creating new styles that enrich society.
