In our rapidly changing society, arts, sciences and technologies are interconnected in new and complex ways. They open up new horizons, establish innovative perspectives and enable new ways of dealing with the world. In their interaction, they change the notion of work and dwelling, of learning and of living. Reflecting these dynamics, TWa develops an ARCHITECTURE OF THE PERFORMATIVE SPACE. We design spaces that actively support and underpin their uses and interweave them with their spatial and cultural context.

Our architecture delivers a framework for the personal development of the individual in their public and private context. It is our goal to formulate an architecture which supports users and occupants in their active formation and determination of their existence. In a breathing texture of form and semantics, our buildings open up spatial and functional flexibility, thus providing the space for a vivid and creative interaction between individual and society.

Our buildings define their locations in a reflected and confident way and in dialogue with their urban environment. Determining factors in our design process are the urban fabric, the context of functions and semantics, layers of history as well as urban and natural environment. In their independent formal language, our buildings enter into a creative dialogue with their surroundings.

Energy efficiency, resource conservation and sustainability are central features of contemporary construction. They characterize the interaction between people and urban space, building and spatial context, city and natural environment. In a European and American discourse, we participate in research about the city of the future and engage in new models of urban development. In our design process we develop innovative energy concepts in cooperation with experienced and renowned partners.

In our design work, we follow an integrated approach that determines architectural elements within their context – interacting and interweaving, they merge into a complex form language. New technologies such as parametric design, building performance simulation and 3 D printing are employed as design tools that endeavour to achieve cutting-edge aesthetics centred upon the individual.

New technologies such as parametric design, building performance simulation and 3 D printing are employed as design tools that endeavour to achieve cutting-edge aesthetics centred upon the individual.

Our planning strategies and building designs are committed to sustainability and global climate protection. We know how to use construction materials and resources in order to keep the „ecological footprint“ as light as possible. During design development, we evaluate materials in regards to their durability and their embedded grey energy. In our building concepts, we maximize energy production and minimize energy consumption – with the objective of achieving a plus energy standard. We are accredited for handling and monitoring LEED projects.

Our building design and project development also takes the overall life-cycle costs into account. An environmentally friendly design and implementation offers the potential to reduce capital and operating costs and to increase the property value.

In the development of environmentally friendly buildings, we combine green roofs and photovoltaics, geothermal heating and cooling, intelligent control systems and smart building technology. In cooperation with our partners, we are working to expand the current limits of green technologies by creating innovative concepts and evaluating new technological processes.

With office locations in the US and Europe Tom Winter Architect PC New York and Tom Winter Architects GmbH Berlin is at the center of an international network which integrates public institutions as well as private organizations and businesses. Representing the Federal German Architects Chamber's 'Network for Architecture Exchange' NAX since 2010 Tom Winter actively advances the intercultural exchange of architectural ideas and innovations. In our work we are supportedby international partners like 

Our work flow cross links diverse cultural backgrounds, arts and science as well as  competency, means and methods from various fields of work. Architecture, fine arts, design and visual communications are equally represented in our team as philosophy, sociology and city planning. By juxtaposing heterogeneous elements we activate innovative energies, create a dynamic work environment and set the base for innovative, high quality results.
