Mainzer Tor – Museum Depot, City Archive and Youth Center


Our Stuttgart based office was founded in 2001 by Martin Bez and Thorsten Kock. We are a constantly growing team of about 50 architects. Our commissions primarily result from successful architectural competition entries. The designs are archetypal manifestations of our comprehensive quality standard for architecture. Our common goal is to realize unique, functional and economical buildings. One of our highest priorities is an integrated approach to the design process – from urban design to detail and from first stroke to structural realization.

Each construction project is unique. It follows that the appropriate architectural solution can only be found on an individual, task-specific basis. Our goal is to develop distinctive and harmonious architecture based on the existing parameters of location, function and budget, that is characterized by resource-conscious longevity. Just as diverse as the design problems, the structures we build are always unique. We welcome this heterogeneity. Concert hall or library, town hall or university, housing or city hall – an autonomous and sustainable contribution to architecture can emerge from each task.
