The combination of Swiss precision with a joyful approach gives KLM architecture its special knack for clear-shaped, dynamic structures, with creative innovation included. The small and diverse team consists of Swiss architects Stephan Klingler and his daughter Lara in collaboration with architects Stephan Mundwiler and his wife Cara Lee, who both received their master’s degrees in the US. For Stephan Mundwiler, the transatlantic organisation means frequent travelling between California and Switzerland; media like email and Skype have proven essential for a lively and frequent exchange between the Swiss base and the LA office.
