Circumstances count. Caramel Architekten strongly believe in the influence of surroundings and future users on the creative act, rather than being influenced by trends and artificially created standards. Every Caramel project therefore is unique and perfectly adjusts to the given situation, preferably by using new, or newly interpreted, materials. Take Caramel’s contribution at last year’s Venice Biennale for example, showing that the major in uence by no means lies with the nancial background of their clients:“We simply enjoy working for and with people, that is the central point of our work – always!” says architect Günter Katherl. “Working with our clients on a long-term basis has created lasting friendships.”
