Over the past 100 years, architecture has often faced the problem of following the latest hype, producing cities filled to the brim with buildings that are outdated and incapable of meeting nowadays needs. Noefer architects strive to go against that tide and produce architecture that picks up on century-old urban building traditions, implemented in combination with intelligent modern building standards. This merger guarantees little aesthetic and structural abrasion and allows for a slow transformation and restoration of the urban cityscape. Through intensive analysis of the architectural detail, Noefer architects have created their own repertory which in turn leads to recognisable characteristics in their work, described by Tobias Noefer as detailed architecture in tune with anthropomorphic proportions.
