Transparency | Disguise | Branding | Iconography
Pichler & Traupmann Architects deal with facades of different typologies in the majority of their projects, which focus on the following topics:

Transparency | Concealment

The façade as a connecting element that makes the characteristics of the functions readable - a transparent envelope structure in interplay.

Branding | Iconography

The building envelope as brand carrier with landmark effect. In addition to this representative effect, functional requirements such as sound insulation and evacuation system can also be fulfilled.


Pichler & Traupmann was founded in 1992 by Christoph Pichler and Johann Traupmann and since then has performed a wide range of construction tasks of the most diverse typologies.

The work of Pichler & Traupmann is documented in numerous publications and awarded with professional prizes.

Christoph Pichler, born in 1964, studied architecture at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna and at Harvard University, USA. Since 1992, he has been teaching at the Technical Universities of Vienna and Graz, first as a university assistant, and from 1996 as a lecturer.

Johann Traupmann, born in 1958, studied theology in Vienna and architecture at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna. Since 1992 he has been teaching at the University of Applied Arts in Vienna, first as a lecturer and since 2002 as an assistant professor.

Since the end of 2019 the office has been expanded by two junior partners: Bartosz Lewandowski and Wolfgang Windt. Bartosz Lewandowski leads our design team as in the past years and Wolfgang Windt is mainly responsible for the implementation of the projects.
