»Only those who think beyond today will secure tomorrow.«
At Kehrbaum Architekten, every project has a common goal, a common vision. As part of a team of 25 architects with international experience, everyone fulfils their role as a function of their talents. They all agree on one thing: here, their work is not based on the competition, but on their own high standards. And because responsibility requires foresight, Klaus Kehrbaum has tasked four team members with ensuring multifunctional full service – and thereby the future of the firm.

What sources of inspiration do you use for the architecture of tomorrow?
“I try to learn from the greats of the craft, analyse their work and develop it further in everyday life. This examination of the built environment, its effects on human behaviour in everyday life and vice versa is certainly one of many sources. Architecture must improve our everyday life if it is to endure tomorrow.”
