Karamuk * Kuo Architects

Zurich, Switzerland; New York, United States

Karamuk * Kuo was established in 2010 by Jeannette Kuo and Uenal Karamuk who bring their international background and diverse building experiences to their design process. Foregrounding the relationship of space and program, each project is approached with the optimism that architecture is the translation of fresh ideas into reality.


The office works on projects of a range of scales—from spatial installations and exhibitions to complex multi-family housing projects—and is always looking for new creative opportunities. In addition, both partners are committed to intellectual pursuits in design research and have been teaching since 2006 at various universities in the U.S. and Switzerland. Jeannette is currently Assistant Professor in Practice at Harvard University's Graduate School of Design.
