Alexander Brenner Architects
The atelier of Alexander Brenner Architects was established in 1990 in Stuttgart, Germany.
The atelier focuses on Villas and residential houses, art galleries and private art collections.
The common ground for all projects is an integrated planning, which combines as well the building as the interior design, the elaboration of furnishings and fittings, the lighting design and all other specialist planning from one hand.
This way all spatial issues are considered in such a way that a holistic structure can emerge that is thoroughly designed down to the smallest detail.
studied from 1981 to 1987 at Stuttgart University and graduated with distinction in the fields of architecture and urban planning . After his diploma, he worked as a project architect with Prof. Dieter Hauser, for whom he had already worked as a student for several years.
