Besides dealing with ongoing projects, regular participation in competitions is essential to their work. Aside from being a chance for a new commission, it is an occasion for a stimulating and profound examination of a present-day challenge. Sketches showing a first general concept, a precise analysis of the area and working models are all essential steps for them.

Among the competitions won in recent years are; the Volkstheater in Munich, the dialogicum, the Historical Museum in Frankfurt a.M. and the Municipal Museum in Stuttgart. Also, Annex to the Württemberg State Library in Stuttgart, the Historical Museum in Frankfurt a.M., the Office and Business House Kaiserkarree in Karlsruhe and the Municipal Museum in Stuttgart. Also, the Educational Centre in Lörrach, the Cloister Hegne Marianum in Allensbach, the Art Museum in Ravensburg, the Diocesan Curia and archive in Rottenburg and the Hospitalhof in Stuttgart are all important projects for them which were acquired by competition.

Their projects are mainly realized in the fields: Office buildings, authority and administration, leisure and sports, health and education, culture and church, housing, the industry as well as urban planning.
