The collective is founded in 2013 by David and Verena Messner, brother and sister. The studio is located at 1.200 m.a.s.l. near Bolzano in Northern Italy. The practice is working on a contemporary approach in any scale, ranging from housing and functional buildings, urban and lanscape planning up to furniture and brand-design. The primary aim of developing user- and site-specific concepts is to think and build high quality architecture. A largely regional context defines the studio’s field of action characterizing the architects’ view on the delicate relationship of built and grown. The critical look at something given and the use of transdisciplinary strategies lead to a creative dialogue between architecture, landscape, art and design.
