Störmer Murphy and Partners.

We are an established architectural practice, recognized for our award-winning portfolio of successfully completed comissions with a wide range of typologies, scales and budgets. With our dedicated, design-driven team, we place a strong focus on research and innovation, grounded by decades of hands-on building experience. We believe that good design is sustainable design – not only by creating robust, durable buildings with a responsible choice of materials and use of natural resources, but also by shaping unique places with strong identities and a long-lasting cultural significance. There is no one-size-fits-all strategy for this – we are driven by the passion to create.

Comparison of construction CO₂ footprint

Together with DIEfabrik – Architekten and Jim Bögershausen, we have developed the eCO₂ tool, which can be used to compare the costs and CO₂ balances of alternative types of construction using building models in early planning phases. The result is an efficient planning process with an optimised ratio of costs and CO₂ balance.
