Külby architects is an architectural office dedicated to architecture on all scales, from urban planning to furniture design. We believe that architecture transforms a place, a situation and even a person. The necessary for us does not replace luxury and comfort, pragmatics do not substitute pleasure, nor does function win over form. We approach our projects with analysis and research with all of their constraints, to develop a best case scenario that resolves the given problematics.
We have developed a particular competence in housing, but also in building for the disabled, in renovation and restoration, and in hotel and industrial buildings. The office was first founded in 1959 as Külby + Tröndle by Kurt Külby in Lörrach, Germany. In 2014, a second office was opened in Berlin, Germany. Together we offer the full spectrum of architectural services.
