Before co-founding ÜberRaum Architects, Markus delivered several high-profile buildings for world-renowned practices in Toronto, Stuttgart and London, including Auer&Weber and Make. At ÜberRaum he has led a variety of projects from concept to completion. His experience is composed of residential, retail and office design as well as government buildings.

As director he maintains and evolves the practice’s identity through an active, hands-on approach. This aids to the professionalism and communication of our project management and the continuation of high design quality to meet the aspirations and needs of our clients.

Markus enjoys a collaborative working method and the inevitable positive results this process embodies. His design approach is embellished through his love of film and the cinematic, which results in exciting architectural proposals that are dynamic and atmospheric.

Daniela is a co-founder and director of ÜberRaum Architects. Before this she worked on projects in Germany, Switzerland, UK and the Middle East where the scale ranged from multi-billion pound masterplans to small boutique interiors.

Daniela uses her experience and leadership to build relationships with consultants and authorities to engage and integrate everybody in the delivery of the project. This underlies the practices belief that this results in better buildings that everybody can be proud of.

As practice director, she is devoted to working closely with clients to help them realize their briefs. She infuses her work with her passion for materials, a strong sensibility for colour and an understanding of context and user experience.

Publications

London Design Capital

Publication: London: Design Capital

ÜberRaum Architects have three projects featured in  London: Design Capital, the new NLA exhibition publication which explores the global reach of London’s built environment industries.

One of our three projects featured is Mountain Villa Resort, a scheme consiting of 70 mountainside homes as part of a new landscaped development, set in a stunning mountain setting in Gabala, a city in the north Azerbaijan mountains.

The second project Baku Old Town House, is a full refirbishment of the Old Town Residence. Clad in bronze, the rooftop pavilion’s surface reflects sunlight seen across its UNESCO World Heritage Site surroundings. Its sculptural form provides dramatic views, while clearly expressing the contemporary addition to the historic building.

Our final project featured in the NLA publication is Cloud Cuckoo House. Located in the Black Forest, Germany, Cloud Cuckoo sits at an altitude of 800m above sea level. When fog drifts into the valley, the home for a young family floats above the clouds, with a magical view across the fairytale landscape of the Upper-Rhine area.
