The architectural practice “Thomas Baecker Bettina Kraus” was founded in Berlin in 2013. With a diverse team, the founding partners – Bettina Kraus and Thomas Baecker – work on both architectural and urban design issues as well as product design. Each task is approached independent of scale and instead measured according to creative, economic, ecological and socio-cultural parameters. Every project is fundamentally based on conceptual, rational and intuitive thought processes. While navigating through the issues of functionality, context and technical feasibility of any given project, the work itself begins to develop its own formal and intellectual dimensions. A dialogue with the client then leads to the emergence of a custom made solution with a specific spatial figure and materiality.
