Knapkiewicz & Fickert
Projects
Axel Fickert (1952) and Kaschka Knapkiewicz (1950) are currently working on several residential estate projects in Zurich. Housing construction has been their main focus since they set up their architecture firm in Zurich in 1992. In the past few years, the emphasis has shifted to urban development projects, one of which was the «Klee» housing development in Zurich.

The two ETH Zurich graduates have both been employed by their alma mater as guest lecturers in the past and are now teaching at the Zurich University of Applied Sciences in Winterthur. They were awarded the «Prix Meret Oppenheim» by the Federal Office of Culture in 2005 and the «Schelling Medaille» by the Schelling Architecture Foundation in Karlsruhe in 2010 for their architectural achievements.
