GRAFT is conceived as a studio for architecture, urban planning, design, music and the pursuit of happiness. Since its establishment 1998 in Los Angeles, it has been commissioned to design and manage a wide range of projects across multiple disciplines and in numerous locations.
We believe in the power of architecture as a tool, best employed not for its own sake, but to represent ambiguous and diverse identities.
Our work features designs for projects in the fields of residential and commercial architecture, health care, mobility, digitization, work, branding, master planning and urban culture, all of which graft different realities into new hybrids.
With projects in more than 30 countries, our work as well as our employees are truly international. Our team of about 100 architects, interior designers, communication experts and administrative staff works from offices in Berlin, Los Angeles and Shanghai.
GRAFT is conceived as a studio for architecture, urban planning, design, music and the pursuit of happiness. Since its establishment 1998 in Los Angeles, it has been commissioned to design and manage a wide range of projects across multiple disciplines worldwide:
Charlie Living is a new residential complex that marks a highly liveable dwelling close to Checkpoint Charlie, one of the most historically significant areas of Berlin. The open ensemble of four new buildings fills one of the last open lots of the former Berlin Wall strip in the city centre. Three eight-storey main buildings and a cluster of town houses situated within the inner block, are modelled polygonally and freely connected to each other by means of a green internal courtyard
WAVE is a stunning and architecturally unique project in Berlin-Friedrichshain. Uncompromising in design and form. Obsessively aesthetic. Nature and opulence in fundamental contrast. Resolute like a luxury yacht, the iconic architecture proudly rises against the Spree, standing almost face-to-face with Berlin’s iconic Molecule Man. Breathtaking waterfront location, spectacular suites, apartments and penthouses.
BRICKS is a complex of old and new buildings in one of the busiest residential districts in the city centre of Berlin. GRAFT revitalized a former post office area, with its unique brick architecture, expanding it with two new buildings and converting the original rooftops for commercial purposes. Thus a modern ensemble accessible to the public was created comprising offices, restaurants, retail outlets, a private university, fitness and recreational facilities as well as rental apartments.
