United Architektur Team

We are United. Our architecture, interiors and product design create positive experiences through an awareness of diversity. This consciousness is reflected in the different programs and building scales of our projects.

Jens Brinkmann, founder and Director of this interdisciplinary studio, has spent over fifteen years making architecture that deals with the fundamentals of people’s quality of life. Today, Design Directors, Emily Pearce and Chiara Sanguin take a strategic lead in the office.

Quality is an essential part of our work and we pay great attention to details, finishes and the functionality of each project that comes to us. We work with strong industry partners to reach out for new sustainable techniques and materials while taking care to look for architectural solutions that fulfil our clients’ needs.

Brief information about the projects that you/your company have been involved with. For instance, what scale have you focused on/preferred, any signicant projects where the company/ individuals have been Involved?

Our work spans a broad range of realised and proposed projects of different scales and typologies, from private houses, public and institutional commissions, start-up and co-working offices, art installations and galleries, office and library furniture, a lakeside swimming pool, a Kite Surf School in Lençóis Maranhenses and a pop- up restaurant on a frozen river. To see more of our projects in detail, visit: www.unitedarchitektur.com

What does architecture mean to you and what is the role of an architect in your society?

We believe in the unifying power of architecture as a significant cultural intermediary of life today. We use architecture as a fundamental tool to create responsive and innovative design solutions that meet the needs of our constantly changing world.

Why do you participate in architecture competitions?

We see architecture competitions as a way of expanding our understanding of architecture. Competitions enable us to explore new cultures, places and develop new client relationships.

What advice would you give to individuals who struggle to decide whether it would be beneficial for them to participate in architecture competitions?
