Just Architekten is an international, diverse team with an urban mindset. Our thinking is characterized by a multi-perspective and empathetic mindset. Our approach? Always detail-oriented yet with an eye on the bigger picture.

We are distinguished not only by our conceptual strength but also by the comprehensive execution of projects and precise finishing. Our modus operandi is process oriented. Our clients describe us as down-to-earth, honest, and practical in implementation.

Through intensive exchange with our clients, we are able to meet very high demands on the final result. This is when our specialized qualifications come into play: fire protection, building logistics, construction management, urban development, facade design and interior design.

For us, technical solutions and professional work do not contradict creativity, but form the solid framework of all our projects. Our focus lies on construction in existing structures, designing inspiring workspaces, as well as on traditional construction tasks of various scales.

The analysis of the context, the location and its history are a major driving force for our work. We enjoy navigating the tension between the old and the new.

Building in existing structures is an extremely sustainable construction method. In combination with sustainable energy design and circular economy, we strive for climate neutrality.

Numerous design awards and project publications in our name attest to our high standards of design and quality.

In the complexity of present-day construction and the limitations of time, choosing to begin the journey with the right team from the very start becomes an indispensable decision, rather than opting for a solitary endeavor.

Team

  • Malte Just Alternativtitel

    Malte Just

    Alternativtitel

    "Challenging architecture starts by perceiving things accurately and opening up spaces of association for me. One must be attentive, dialogical, and empathic. And one must set impulses and accents at precisely the right moment."

    Malte, the head of Just Architekten, possesses a special ability to envision, perceive, and sense things. He has a keen sense of timing and the right team by his side to skillfully orchestrate and steer complex processes while always keeping the bigger context in mind.

    He is a skilled networker who promotes interdisciplinary collaboration to enhance projects and processes. He acts as a catalyst within his team and communicates effectively – both internally and externally.

    His strength in the early phases of a project – the conception, development of ideas, and their implementation into concrete architectural plans – is emphasized by clients. The dynamic relationship between humans and space forms the basis of his architectural thinking.

    With a profound interest in the cultural processes inseparably linked to architectural creation, he approaches design with an appreciation for values, history, and the continuous development of existing structures. He respects tradition but is equally open to innovations and strives to create something extraordinary every time.

    Malte's professional journey began with studying Romance languages and sociology at the Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main. Language and society remain determining factors in architecture for him. During his studies, he developed a deep understanding of sociocultural processes expressed in architecture, urban development, and urban planning.

    After a study stay in Barcelona, he made the decision to pursue architecture. With a degree in architecture from the Frankfurt University of Applied Sciences, he took another step abroad and worked at Norman Foster's globally active office in London.

    Subsequently, he was admitted to the Master's program in Conceptual Design at the Städelschule in Frankfurt. This opportunity motivated him to return to Frankfurt and refine his design skills at this art school with an internationally oriented architecture class.
    Following this phase, Malte worked at the office of Prof. Rang and Prof. Volz on the new construction and conversion of the Innsbruck ice sports hall.

    In 2002, he co-founded his own office with Till Burgeff. In 2021, he decided to take over Till Burgeff's shares to give the studio even more of his own touch.

    Malte is a member of the Association of German Architects (BDA), the German Design Club (DDC), and the Friends of the German Architecture Museum (DAM). He is actively involved in the Lions Club Frankfurt Römer.

    Malte has taught design and construction at various German universities, including Frankfurt, Siegen, and Düsseldorf. Additionally, he regularly serves as a guest critic and jury member in various institutions."

    Thomas studied architecture at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology and at TU Graz. During his time in Karlsruhe, he also worked as a supervisor for freehand drawing at the university, where he shared his knowledge and enthusiasm for this technique.

    In his free time, Thomas is a passionate freehand drawing artist. He enjoys spending as much time as possible on the water with his motorboat, appreciating nature and tranquility.

Through synergistic collaboration, we navigate remarkably complex challenges with ease. As part of an excellence network that includes specialists in design, architecture, art, strategy, market intelligence, digital expertise, and construction, we foster a continuous exchange of ideas. We excel at orchestrating collaborative processes.
