With every project, the interplay between open and closed, public and private, loud and quiet, narrow and wide spaces must be developed anew and responsibly. Our work is characterized by the search for what connects at all levels of scale. Beyond sheer openness, we create threshold spaces and transitions that promote communication and exchange through appropriate atmosphere.
Originally emerging from the Munich satellite of Marcel Meili Markus Peter Architekten Zurich, the office has been operating under the direction of Florian Hartmann, Andreas Müsseler, Oliver Noak and Lisa Yamaguchi since 2007.

Marcel Meili and Markus Peter founded the Munich office in 2007 and helped shape it until they accompanied us into economic independence in 2013. Their incomparable way of demanding everything for a common goal and at the same time giving everything has shaped us and is our incentive and goal. Our good friend and mentor Marcel Meili unfortunately passed away far too early in 2019. Markus Peter, with whom we remain on friendly terms as ***+, currently continues the Zurich office.
