Hans Kollhoff

Professor Hans Kollhoff has established a reputation for designing extraordinary houses and skyscrapers, suffused with a deep understanding of traditional architectural values as they accommodate and enhance our clients’ needs and aspirations. Hans Kollhoff founded his practice in 1978 after completing his studies at Cornell University, where he studied under Colin Rowe and Oswald Mathias Ungers.

After his return from the USA, he was Assistant Professor for building development and teaching at the University of Technology in Berlin Technische Universität. From 1981 to 1985 he was again Guest Professor both in the USA and at the Hochschule der Kunst in Berlin and Dortmund University. From 1987 to 1989 Hans Kollhoff taught as Guest Professor at the ETH in Zurich, where he is Professor of Architecture since 1990.

In 1978 he set up his studio in Berlin. Since 1984 Hans Kollhoff has had his office in Berlin in partnership with the architect Helga Timmermann. From 1999 he expanded to other countries and has opened offices in Switzerland, Italy and in 2000 in The Netherlands with partner architect Alexander Pols. Together with many collaborators he today works on a wide-ranging program of building projects, mainly residential, but also commercial and public buildings.
