The architecture office De Giovannini & Baumann architects is a multidisciplinary and intergenerational agency, working to adapt the habitat for people and their needs.

In 1984, architect Hervé De Giovannini opened his first architecture studio in Geneva followed by a branch in Lausanne. In 2013 the agency takes an international dimension, with the opening of a partner office in Berlin. In 2018, Hervé De Giovannini joined forces and founded with Karl-Anton Baumann, former collaborator of the company, the office De Giovannini & Baumann, architects. This multidisciplinary union has allowed the office to extend its architectural philosophy and thus develop its vision of the future of housing.

Independent of any construction company, our architect’s office, composed of 18 collaborators, can guarantee to the Client a total impartiality in the research of the project best adapted to the request, the analysis of the tenderers, the proposals of adjudication and control of works. The international experience of the company’s employees makes it possible to design a project in any country, while respecting local constraints.
