fatkoehl architects is a Berlin based office founded by architect Florian Köhl in 2002.
A major trait of the studio’s work is its constant search for ways of relating people
through architecture with their urban surroundings. In this context, the offices
spearheaded efforts to elaborate alternative architectural production models on an
all but stale Berlin housing market in the early 2000s. They were instrumental in the
development of a new building approach – co-housing – which foresaw the major
involvement of their clients in the building process and lead to a new type of
architecture fusing a client’s creativity with the strong design vision of the architect.
Florian Köhl researched and taught for several years at the Technical University of
Berlin and the Bartlett School of Architecture, London.
Florian Köhl is a co-founder of the NBBA (Network of Co-housing Architects in
Berlin), Teameleven and Instant City, Berlin.
