The office

Founded in Basel in 1991, Luca Selva Architects is directed by Luca Selva with Roger Braccini and David Gschwind as executive partners. Luca Selva Architects approaches each commission responsively, fundamentally, and as a team, with the aim of finding the most precise solutions to the respective concerns being investigated. Seeking the essential condenses into an architectural leitmotif, which is further concentrated to reach a perfectly fitting response, convincing over the long term through its simplicity and economic efficiency: A solution that takes equal account of material and immaterial values. Accordingly, the firm handles all building tasks, offering a broad spectrum of services from preliminary design to billing, and takes the greatest care in ensuring quality construction, materialization, and realization. Specialties include housing, urban studies as well as public buildings and re-use/renovations.

Luca Selva’s successful breakthrough into the field in 1996 is marked by the Kaltenbrunnen School (with Jean-Pierre Wymann) in Basel. Other selected major milestones include: the residential Bäumlihof Duplex in Riehen (2001) and award-winning Multigenerational House in Binningen (2013), representing single-family housing with special spatial programming; Youngster Campus FC Basel (2013), which has been acknowledged internationally; Densa Park Residential Complex in Basel (2011) and Linth-Escher Cooperative Apartments in Zurich-Oerlikon (2014), which represent key works in the firm’s development of larger residential projects, which is currently being continued in a planning endeavor in a historic landmark industrial district in Cologne; and, Erlenmatt Primary School, which will be completed by 2017.
