Jürgen Steffens, Olaf Drehsen, Konstantin Jaspert, Frederik Jaspert. JSWD

JSWD is an architecture studio founded by four partners, Jürgen Steffens, Olaf Drehsen and brothers Konstantin and Frederik Jaspert  in 2000, but since 2024, JSWD is led by founding partners Olaf Drehsen and Frederik Jaspert, partners Christian Mammel , Mario Pirwitz and Tobias Unterberg and associate partners Hermann Norda and Helmut Schröder.

Currently, they run an office of approximately 280 employees from 30 different countries. The partners began their architectural careers as students at the RWTH in Aachen. Günter Behnisch, Schuster Architects and Volkwin Marg (gmp) influenced his professional development, followed by teaching positions and the founding of the company. In recent years, JSWD has realized more than 60 projects in Germany and increasingly in other European countries, often following successfully submitted competitions.

JSWD finds further architectural, technical and intellectual inspiration in cooperative projects with other architectural firms in France and Luxembourg, in the USA and in China, while maintaining a collaborative exchange in the realization of joint construction projects.
