schneider+schumacher was founded in 1988 by Till Schneider and Michael Schumacher in Frankfurt. Our architectural approach is characterized by the enjoyment we have in finding solutions to the complex demands of today's buildings. Pragmatic poetry, nurtured not only by design clarity and a conscientious attitude towards the task in hand, but also by a delight in fine details.
Within the Frankfurt office, departments for architecture, construction and project management, design and computation, urban design and building transformation have been formed in recent years in order to highlight the different areas of expertise under one roof. The spectrum of tasks ranges from museums to industrial buildings, from tree houses to high-rise buildings.
Internationally positioned, further offices are located in Vienna/Austria, Tianjin and Shenzhen/China.

Located next to the river, the National Science Center Shenfang Park rises gradually from the embankment, forming a 120-metre-high office tower. The holistic design approach represents a new generation of research buildings that provide laboratories and offices, as well as exhibition areas, conference rooms, and leisure facilities, where scientists can meet each other in informal surroundings. The roof terraces on each level are a distinctive feature.
Competing against 18 architectural practices schneider+schumacher has been awarded first prize in a competition organized by the Mannheim Housing Association to build a new Technical Town Hall in Mannheim’s Glückstein district. The new building is designed to house some 700 employees and to provide an attractive and user-friendly service environment. The design has an eye-catching 13-storey high office tower divided in two, with a transparent glass façade that underscores the public location.
A total of 168 apartments with underground parking have been created in a golden shimmering building based on a double-X plan, designed by Michael Schumacher – owner of schneider+schumacher – and bb22 Architekten, on behalf of the company Pandion. This double-X arrangement provides views in all directions and optimal daylight, while also maximizing the distance between this building and the development opposite.
