The architect Judith Haase and scenographer Pierre Jorge Gonzalez met in 1996 near New York, at theater director Robert Wilson’s Watermill Center. Both were involved in its renovation. When they opened their own office in 1999 in Paris and Berlin, they had already gathered experience in stage design, exhibition design, and
architecture. They were profoundly shaped by the Minimal Art they discovered for themselves in New York and which forms the foundation of their design thinking.
Their work encompasses a spectrum including residential housing, retail spaces, restaurants, offices, building lobbies, exhibition and gallery spaces, lighting design, and independent projects. Never forgetting the context, substance or history of the given place, a distinctive identity is lent to each of their projects.
