OAP Architecture and Projects are based in Zurich, Switzerland, working on projects operating across many scales and building typologies, collaborating also with other architects and artists. OAP see themselves as generalists, who like to contribute to architecture projects in various roles, from the very early stages up to completion on site. Their area of practice include all aspects of architecture and planning, including cultural, industrial, educational and residential buildings.
"Our approach to architecture is the conviction that functional and efficient design combined with technical means will solve any problem, but beyond the mere fulfillment of functions an elegance and aesthetic value can be generated which should be seen as a cultural contribution of the client."
"Our architecture tells stories of.... ....working beyond the boundaries of architecture, engineering and art ….thinking in and showing of different dimensions ….search for radicalization ….correspondence of differences ….effortless conciseness and symbolism
in a culture of conditions."
