bauraum_CD_2_mClaudia Dieling

Co-founder Claudia Dieling is an internationally experienced architect and engineer.

Through her experience in architecture and engineering, Claudia has developed an excellent ability to execute architectural vision whilst working with the technical constraints of a project. She has always been passionate about design details and their practical translation into construction. She also has an unique expertise in the areas of glass and opaque envelopes, skylights and canopies, the renovation of facades and use of innovative materials.

The evidence of this can be seen in a variety of projects that she has conceived, managed and delivered in partnership with clients such as SANAA, Renzo Piano Building Workshop, MVRDV, Shigeru Ban, Diener & Diener, X-TU, Chaix & Morel et Associés, Wilmotte & Associés, Baumschlager-Eberle, Dominique Perrault, Hardel Le Bihan Architectes and Data Architectes.

bauraum_AS_1_mAxel Steinmüller

Co-founder Axel Steinmüller is an experienced fine craftsman and modelmaker.

The wide experience he gained from making props for the renowned Max-im-Gorki Theatre in Berlin to running his own studio, designing and making furniture as well as model making, has given him the expert skills to sustain his ability to always find creative solutions.

In his model making, Axel demonstrates great attention to detail, whilst maintaining a vision of the overall project. His exquisite craftsmanship combined with a deft imagination, delivers models that express the true potential of a project.

This is visible in the models he has made for competition, presentations and details for architects such as Kengo Kuma & Associés, Gehry Partners, Gottfried Böhm, I.M Pei, RDAI, tvk, Bernard Quirot, ChartierDalix and Brunet Saunier Architecture.

Axel has regularly created unique pieces and miniature works in collaboration with a variety of artists including Susanner Fritscher and JR. He has also developed prototypes with the design and engineering offices of Hugh Dutton and Eckersley O’Callaghan.
