Partners & Approach

Architecture + Programme

What should the city of tomorrow look like? How do we maintain diversity and colourful life in urban space? Our vision is the mixed city, in which architecture becomes an impulse generator and promotes intercultural exchange. That’s why we think in networks and engage in dialogue with users, politicians, and neighbourhoods.

For our projects, we develop innovative concepts for use and financing that take into account the entire functional and social spectrum of a city’s quality of life. This is why we believe active ground floor zones are essential to maintain diversity in neighbourhoods.

In their multifaceted role as architects, district developers, cultural managers, and developers, bfstudio-architekten have been planning and realising METROPOLENHÄUSER for several years now.

Benita Braun-Feldweg and Matthias Muffert founded the architectural practice bfstudio-architekten GbR in 1999 and were both appointed to the Association of German Architects (BDA) in 2014. Since 2019, the office has continued as bfstudio Partnerschaft von Architekten mbB Benita Braun-Feldweg & Matthias Muffert.
