Huenerwadel Partnership is an international architecture office that works between Switzerland, Perú, and the Middle East. Founded in Basel in 2003 by Nicolas Hunerwadel, the studio counts with a large spectrum and variety of projects around the world in different fields from uni-family homes, collective housing complexes, workspaces, to industrial buildings and theatre sets.


In this way, they propose a method which includes a multicultural and interdisciplinary work system. By using and finding an intersection between art and architecture they sought to engage both approaches to address the different geographies, landscapes, and weathers in which they get challenged/involved/confronted. They adopt this theoretical reflection in order to guide a construction that establishes a direct correlation between the project and the specific social space in which it is created.
