Behnisch Architekten

Behnisch Architekten was founded in 1989 as a branch office of Günter Behnisch‘s firm, Behnisch & Partner. The “Stadtbüro“, as this branch was called, developed under the leadership of Stefan Behnisch, and in 1991, it became an entirely independent firm, with its own partnership structure and operations. Günter Behnisch continued to run his practice, Behnisch & Partner, in parallel until his retirement and the firm’s closure in 2005. Stefan’s office developed a distinctly international profile, pursuing work throughout Europe and eventually in North America as well, where the firm’s dedication to sustainable building principles coupled with a keen sense for the human experience in architecture found an audience.

In 2005 the independent Stadtbüro adopted today’s name, Behnisch Architekten. Since then, the firm has developed into a successful international practice with office locations in Stuttgart (since 1991), Los Angeles (since 1999), Boston (since 2006), Munich (since 2009) and Weimar (since 2022).
