We like places of authenticity. Fine tuned environmental, urban and programmatic differentiation enhances spatial identity. We value a building's expressive powers, but also its need to answer the subtleties of the pragmatic. Fostering social exchange and interaction, our architecture should respond to both a communal and human scale. In each project, a specific assembly of rooms aims to create discrete backgrounds for life. Shaped by earth, water, air and light, our buildings seek to architecturalize nature. With the ease of a ruin we hope to bring the world to presence.

Sauter von Moos is an architecture studio established in Basel by Florian Sauter and Charlotte von Moos, and as of late based in Miami. The studio engages in work on all scales, both in theory and practice.
