Christian Voss VOSS Architects

VOSS Architects is an international architecture and design practice established in 2014. Founded on 19 years of experience, VOSS Architects is based in Switzerland. The practice provides full design services and is currently working on projects mainly in Europe and Australia.

Christian Voss, Principal and Founder of VOSS Architects, worked prior to setting up the practice in collaboration with Herzog de Meuron in Basel, Ian Moore Architects in Sydney and Denton Corker Marshall in London, mainly working on projects for John Pawson.

He worked as the Project Manager for the winning Flinders Street Station competition with Herzog de Meuron and contributed to other large scale projects like the Tate Modern Extension in London, various residential buildings in Switzerland and mixed use high rise building studies in New York City. In London and Sydney, Christian worked on and led a number of single and multi residential buildings as well as high- end retail projects. During these years he gained valuable experiences in all fields of architectural practice, from concept design, tender and documentation to completion.

Christian's design philosophy and architectural understanding was very much influenced by his studies at the Bauhaus University in Weimar and the Mackintosh School of Architecture, Glasgow School of Art, UK.
