In 1995, Jens Wittfoht founded the architectural studio of petry + wittfoht, from which wittfoht architekten evolved in 2005. The range of services comprises very different building assignments, from new buildings to reconstructions and re-interpretations of listed landmarks. Our projects are always individual solutions deducted from the prevalent local and content specificalities and developed in dialogue with our public and private awarding authorities.
We are convinced that architecture is more than only fulfilling spatial programmes, going far beyond the merely technical, constructive, deadline-oriented and economical handling. There is an obvious connection between the inner construction of a building, its expression in the public space, and the standpoint it occupies with regard to societal coexistence. For us, architecture is first of all a thought process and not a formal statement.
