The Institute – collectively creative

Architects for the inside and outside; designers for both the logical and the unfathomable; consultants for before and after. Our fields of activity range from comprehensive project consultancy (before, during, and after), classical architecture and interior design, to furniture and graphic design. Our focus is on "architecture," however we work holistically within our trusted network to provide solutions that go beyond the art of building to create "complete works of art." The right contextual solution always goes beyond pure architecture.

Contextual Design

means that every project is precisely analyzed, evaluated, and individually developed on the basis of the client's specific needs and conditions. No task is the same, every concept is tailor-made. Our dedication and enthusiasm to exceptional development is our greatest strength, long-lasting appreciation for the results our ultimate goal.

Pek startseite perspektive3 500
For the architectural design competition "Prinz Eugen Karree" - in short

PEK

- a design was sought for the central complex of a new residential development in Munich’s Bogenhausen. The design entailed adhering to the strict requirements of the "Konzeptioneller Mietwohnungsbau" (program for government-funded housing) which included the provision of diverse commercial units. The design also needed to include soundproofing and a new “green spaces” concept. The designs submitted by the IFUB* in cooperation with Steidle Architects and Stefanie Jühling (landscape architect) was awarded the 2nd Prize.

Urban in-fill done well? Anyone who has ever dared venture into Munich's suburbs knows that architectural quality is rarely a factor in space rededication and infill developments. In the project

the IFUB* have tried to do things differently. And in mid-2018 we will see how it turns out...

Germany’s largest market research institute needed new premises for its "big data" department. The pilot project

GFK Berlin

was not just about creating office space - the Gesellschaft für Konsumforschung (consumer research association) wanted nothing less than to trial a new future in their own area of work.

In the old chocolate factory in Berlin’s Kreuzkölln, the wild flair of 70s communal living still resonates across the floors. On the second floor is an apartment,

that pays homage to the old spirit. Who said wild cannot be beautiful?

The idea that Bavarians and Berliners don’t always see eye to eye doesn’t just come from big politics. This makes the example set by Sauspiel GmbH—who very successfully combine the best of both worlds—all the more admirable. The (digital) future of the traditional, Bavarian card game "Schafkopf" is being written in Berlin, at the new

Sauspiel Office.

In a balancing act between north and south, Berlin and Bavaria, modernity and tradition, chocolate factory and brezel bakery, the IFUB* were on hand to help shape a fitting architectural environment.

Designing a new building for the district administration offices (Landratsamt) in the historic town Neustadt a. d. Waldnaab - in short

LANEW

- required a meticulous attention to detail regarding a sympathetic integration with existing architecture. As part of the design competition, not only was a gateway between the old town and the landmarked "New Castle" to be created, but also a seamless transition between the development and the rest of its surroundings. A cautious and respectful approach combined with self-confident concepts therefore guided the design.

A new addition to a family home is cause for celebration. But suddenly, when the previously luxurious apartment becomes a bit too small for the now family-of-5, renovations are on the cards. That's why, in

apartment C,

not only was one room made into two, but the whole apartment redesigned and made fit for the next two decades.

From two make one. That was the aim for a young couple in Berlin's Kreuzberg district. When the old apartment next door went up for sale, it was bought, merged with the existing apartment, and completely renovated. The new, spacious
