Atelier Thomas Pucher’s designs arise from meticulous research, grasping the spirit of the site and its context. In this way they create individual, original designs with each project, iconic buildings that stand for themselves. These are not just beautiful; they are also outstanding on a functional level.
Since its founding in 2005, flexibility has been a key strength. Internationally prestigious projects such as the OIC headquarters in Jeddah and the Warsaw Sinfonia are as much part of their portfolio as hospitals, schools and research facilities, or elegant villas, or exceptional museums and theatres.
The Atelier Thomas Pucher team includes architects and engineers from all over the world, together with a general planning team of mechanical and structural engineers, and consultants in energy and building physics.
As head of the office, Thomas Pucher takes a hands-on approach throughout the building process, carrying full responsibility for the project to its end. He is winner of the Karl Friedrich Schinkel prize, the International UIA prize, ‘Best Architect’ Austria 2011, 12, 13 and 14, and in 2010 the Fischer von Erlach prize.
The Atelier Thomas Pucher team values the long-term perspective and is constantly pushing forward into the untapped potential for environmental sustainability.
