After studies at ETH Zurich and GSAPP/Columbia University New York supplemented with practical trainings in Basel and Berlin Niklaus Graber and Christoph Steiger (both *1968) founded their architectural offi ce in 1995.

Their work to date includes public and institutional buildings as well as private houses. Winning several competitions they could accomplish among others the school complex in Buttikon, the community center in Wollerau, the apartment and offi ce building in Bitsch and the window factory in Hagendorn. In 2007 they were participating at the Swiss contribution to the 7th International Architecture Biennale Sao Paulo.
