THE WOODCREATIVE DESIGN PRACTICE

THE WOODBUILDING ® BRAND

 

 

CREATIVE DIRECTION AND SPATIAL DESIGN  |  SUSTAINABLE, HOLISTIC AND FUTURE-ORIENTED

 

We founded THE WOODCREATIVE as an interdisciplinary, future-oriented design practice - a platform to focus and combine our experiences and extensive network from different areas towards the creative direction of spatial and building design

 

Spatial design, architecture, interior design  -  creating and communicating a cohesive lifestyle vision  -  are essential elements and a constant part of our creative activity since 1998

 

As creative leaders, we work with our partner network and above all, our clients, to deliver the solution they need and love

 

We lead all stages of a project - from strategy / planning to a completed space or building - with a consistent visual identity, meaningful architectural and technical solutions - and a special focus towards a healthy, sustainable and holistic solution

 

 

 

WOOD IS THE MOST SENSIBLE, ENERGY EFFICIENT AND SUSTAINABLE BUILDING MATERIAL

 

THE WOODCREATIVE IDEATES INNOVATIVE AND ADVANCED, FUTURE-ORIENTED SOLUTIONS WITH WOOD -  INTERNATIONALLY INFORMED - LOCALLY GROUNDED

 

Our roots are in the alpine region, but we have been living and working in metropolises for over 25 years - New York, Milan, Paris and Vienna - the direct and lived experience of major cities, different cultures and urban lifestyles  -  concrete - steel - glass  -  informs our aesthetics, but also specifies the contrast - nature and serenity

 

THE WOODBUILDING  ( CH_S_01 ) project, completed 2014 in southern Switzerland, was the first freestanding building we created from idea to completed building, showcasing the material and construction principles, establishing our vision as a brand - THE WOODBUILDING ® - a registered brand name that is synonymous with future- oriented, sustainable solid wood buildings that we develop with a dedication to the highest quality standards and a holistic design vision - from draft to completed building.

 

 

We offer a clear design language, a consistent approach to sustainable and renewable materials, but no generic, standard solution

 

Every project is developed along specific requirements, to its use and location - THE WOODBUILDING ® - instantly recognizable, but never the same, never generic - pure, calm and healthy - living in THE WOODBUILDING ® - a unique, sensible and beautiful choice.
