The Hamburg based Störmer Murphy and Partner are an architectural firm who succeed at articulating the natural environment, urban context, and history of a location. The firm aims to begin a dialogue with their designs that does not end once a building is completed. They are interested in making designs which have an impression on the user but one that arises from their own personal experience with it. They specialise in hotel buildings because hotels are interactive spaces, filled with all sorts of new ideas and messages, hitting at the core of what the firm strives for in a design.
