German architects Drewes + Strenge have remained remarkably under the radar on the international scene considering the consistent quality of their growing portfolio. Based intriguingly in Berlin, Herzebrock (in Westphalia) and San Francisco, they have turned out an impressive body of work that includes retail, offices, galleries and private residences since their foundation in 1999.
Their style is one of clean lines and cleverly interconnecting volumes, all ‘form and function’ with raw material surfaces of weathered steel, concrete and wood, illustrated well by their Lübbering residence in Herzebrock and a striking Opus outlet in Oelde.
