Günter Katherl

Caramel Architekten | Vienna, Austria www.caramel.at



Günter Katherl, born in 1965 in Vöckabruck / Upper Austria, founded the Vienna-based office Caramel together with Martin Haller and Ulrich Aspetsberger in 2000. With their team, they have already implemented various building projects of different scales.
A series of individually planned private residences has attracted great interest, among them the “500-square metre living room” project, an unconventional three-storey house on the outskirts of Vienna, or “Haus M”, a project in a top-quality location in Linz with a high degree of prefabrication. Most construction contracts result from the regular and successful participation in international competitions. Besides the implementation of the large-scale projects “Science Park – Johannes Kepler University”, „Wifi Dornbirn”, “Betriebsgebäude Land Oberösterreich Ansfelden”, and “Schule Krems”, the members of the trio dedicate themselves to design studies. Lecture series, teaching courses and art projects are also part of their scope of activities. Their motto is: Every time a new challenge – anew for each project.
