“A collective of characters forms the basis for our creative process. We combine quality craftsmanship with innovative design – beyond the core area of architecture.
We create individual architecture through collaborative action and diverse ideas. With a feeling for atmosphere, aesthetics and haptics, we create high-quality, functional solutions, always keeping the economic aspect in mind.
Through the conscious use of natural materials and respectful treatment of existing buildings, comprehensive concepts with attention to detail are created. Good design enables valuable architecture that can outlast generations and thus redefines sustainability.”

To us, architecture is an individual process of creation. Ideally, it is a synthesis that arises between architect and client.
The designers of SNOW create and shape an interaction between characters, feelings, impressions, forms and the environment. This interaction is understood as the main theme underlying any design process.
We at SNOW neither pursue a single design vocabulary nor a standardized approach. The pivotal point is the interplay between observer and architecture itself. Only if this relationship is well understood, unique architectural objects can emerge.
We love to combine and blend styles. We have a passion for material and space while craftmanship is at the heart of everything we do. We fuse tranquility with dynamics instead of restricting ourselves to a singular style.
Starting with a new project we always look at it with its orientation to the sun and the cardinal points.
Every cardinal point has its own mental effect, which influences the process of creating. As designers it is our duty to give the objects individuality, soul and character – every kind of architecture conveys a feeling.
We are focused on designing our projects resource-saving and to abstain from petroleum-based insulation materials as well as CO2 causing substances wherever it makes sense and is possible.
In the planning and execution, it is important to us to put the respective craft in scene. In the artistic planning sense, our craft is in harmony with the technical skills of the respective trades. We have a network of local professionals who attach great importance to the conservation of resources and regional production. We have already had good experience with the companies we have selected and have worked extremely well together. Together with builders and professionals, a total work of art is created that represents the feeling of a project in all its elements.
