schneider+schumacher is an international architectural practice with offices in Frankfurt, Vienna, Tianjin and Shenzhen. Simplicity and perfection. Discipline and creativity. Economy and memorable images. We see these not as paradoxes, but as the constituent parts of great architecture – elements that generate buildings where people feel comfortable, and with which they can identify.
Since our foundation more than 30 years ago we have created over 100 buildings and urban development projects and designed numerous products. Our portfolio ranges from residential projects to industrial buildings, from motorway churches to high-rise buildings, and from museums to particle accelerators.
Great architecture generates a positive atmosphere and encourages reflection.
An international interdisciplinary team forms the core of our Frankfurt office. Founded in 1988, schneider+schumacher’s headquarters and largest office is located in Frankfurt. All our administrative services are based here, including our PR department. A new office was established in Berlin at the beginning of 2023.
In Vienna, Graz, and Klagenfurt, apartments are being created in six ongoing projects by schneider+schumacher’s Austrian office. schneider+schumacher’s Austrian office currently consists of ten staff members working under the direction of the partner Eckehart Loidolt.
Following the establishment of our Tianjin office in 2012, schneider+schumacher China has won numerous competitions, mainly in Shenzhen in southern China, where we established another office in 2019.
Our architecture is not subject to any stylistic dogma. Our design strategy is to come up with a highly original solution based on the specific requirements of the project. Underlying our architecture is an ambition to combine what is feasible with a quality that is inherently poetic - we like to call this ‘poetic pragmatism’.
