We are architects, sculptors, social strategists and innovators, dedicated to use architecture to shape a better world. Matthias Hollwich, the firm’s founder, was born and raised in Germany where he studied architecture. He brings a dual perspective to all of the firm’s designs, combining German precision with American aspiration. His vision is shared by his team of collaborators who listen, question, and lead the creation of extraordinary places. HWKN is always seeking talented and motivated individuals to join our team! We pledge minimum hierarchy, maximum collaboration, full transparency, and constant innovation. We do not believe in political, religious, racial, national, gender, age, or any other segregation.
