When Steiner finished his studies in architecture, he decided he needed to found his own architect’s office if he wanted to realise his ideas of modern architecture. The name he gave his newly founded business is reminiscent of the Russian satellite that conquered space with little effort but with a big effect. Similar to this satellite and its name,which translates as ‘companion’, Steiner sees himself as the companion of his client during the project phase and as someone who accomplishes a great deal with seemingly little effort. “Primarily, I am planning and building homes I myself would like to live in,”stresses Steiner.“This is a guarantee that the customer gets the best results.”
