DOMOTEX INTERVIEW 68


Twelve years ago, three friends graduated with the dream of starting their own architecture studio. Here, we preview an interview in Domotex World magazine with one of the founders

Stefanie Wögrath was one of the three founders behind Illiz Architektur in 2008. The others were Sabrina Mehlan and Petra Meng. The past decade has seen their company grow substantially and now operates out of offi ces in Vienna and Zurich where they employ a team of 15 architects. As a young, ambitious fi rm, they were initially drawn to the challenges of working on projects with a strong technical focus. These days, they work on architecture projects of various sizes.


DOMOTEX :What role does teamwork play in the way you work? SW : I appreciate this closeness between the three of us and it is also the basis for the atmosphere of partnership in our team. But teamwork is essential, not only within our own offi ce structure. Especially for more complex project tasks, there are many specialist planners and consultants on board with whom we work towards a common goal. In particular, the ability to pull together across disciplines is one of the essential factors for a successful project.


DOMOTEX : You describe your architecture as ‘always contextual and authentic, yet self-confi dent’. Can you elaborate on that philosophy? SW : We always develop our architecture in context, i.e. with reference to the place, to local traditions and especially with reference to future use. The fi nished building is the result of a long process involving many diff erent people. It starts with a strong architectural concept that serves as a framework during the planning and implementation phases.


On this basis, all decisions can be both communicated and moderated in an understandable way. And a strong idea can withstand a certain dynamic without the architecture becoming illegible. The more input we receive, the better. In this way, all those involved can be found within the completed building, creating a broad consensus that is important for people’s identifi cation with the building. Authenticity emerges when this process succeeds.

DOMOTEX : How important to you is fl ooring in respect of the way it shapes an overall project? SW : It is quite clearly the inner surface, which on average, receives the most attention. Whereas ceilings and walls can do without special measures - the fl oor covering often has to meet high functional and technical requirements.
