Strategic Planning - Urban Design - Architecture - Interiors

CK-Architecture was established on the shared conviction that the immense challenges facing the urban environment in our century can only be faced through close collaboration and integration of many disciplines. Christoph Kapeller particularly enjoys the challenge of working with diverse constituencies in building a working consensus. An inclusive process that creatively engages all stakeholders to sensitively address concerns and aspirations is conceived as an exploration for intervention in the built environment that embraces the entire scope and variety of scales, from urban design to the more intimate scale of individual building details. CK-Architecture eschews extreme formalism and style in favor of highly customized, inspirational, technologically enhanced, environmentally and socially responsible and fully integrated design solutions. Design solutions are driven by each project’s unique circumstances and requirements, and are informed and tested by the following values:

- Research based design process
- Building concept informed by the purpose of the facility
- Urban design and siting that responds to contextual opportunities
- Flexibility, adaptability and open-plan design
- Transparency
- Technology to accommodate unique program concerns and requirements
- Sustainability
- Balanced management approach
