About us

Beatrix Wuttke and Thomas Ringhof are German-Danish architects with the firm conviction that the experience of high-quality architecture has a decisive influence on people’s well-being. Closely linked to the Scandinavian artistic and humanistic design tradition, they combine their practical building knowledge with architectural thinking, whereby their ideas are realised in harmonious spatial structures.

The architectural practice was founded in Berlin in 1993 and has been based in an old warehouse from 1780 on Christianshavn in Copenhagen since 2007. Their joint work has resulted in many different projects in Germany and Denmark, the quality of which has been recognised by awards and publications.
