Architects Simona Malvezzi, Wilfried Kuehn and Johannes Kuehn founded Kuehn Malvezzi in Berlin in 2001.

Public spaces, museums and exhibitions are the main focus of their work as architects, designers and curators. They realized the architectural design for Documenta 11, the Rieckhallen extension of the Hamburger Bahnhof – Nationalgalerie der Gegenwart – Berlin, as well as the Julia Stoschek Collection in Dusseldorf. The firm has designed the reorganization of a number of contemporary and historical art collections, attending to sensitive preservation issues for listed buildings, such as the Museum Belvedere in Vienna, the Liebieghaus in Frankfurt, the Museum Berggruen and the Museum of Applied Arts in Berlin, as well as the Herzog Anton Ulrich Museum in Brunswick.

The architects recently completed the new Insectarium in Montreal, the extension of the Moderne Galerie of the Saarlandmuseum in Saarbrücken, as well as the conversion of the Prinzessinnenpalais on Berlin’s Unter den Linden boulevard, that serves as the new cultural venue for the Deutsche Bank. A number of buildings for private clients have been realized in the last years, including both residential and commercial projects such as Joseph Pschorr Haus in Munich, Hohe Straße 52 in the center of Cologne and Villengarten Relenberg, a new residential area in Stuttgart.

Current projects include the interreligious House of One in Berlin, to be built on the historic foundations of Berlin’s earliest churches at Petriplatz; Lot Petit - ZAC Saint-Vincent-de-Paul, a housing and mixed-use project located in the complex urban fabric of a former hospital site in the 14th district of Paris; as well as a new building ensemble at Jannowitzbrücke in Berlin. Recently, the firm won the international competition for the redesign of the Bâtiment d'Art Contemporain in Geneva, which will bring together three cultural institutions within a listed industrial heritage building. Together with architects Pelletier de Fontenay, Kuehn Malvezzi was awarded the first prize in the international competition for the conversion and new construction for PHI Contemporary, a cultural institution in Montreal.

Prizes and awards include the Canadian Architect Award, nominations for the Mies van der Rohe Award and finalists for the DAM Prize for Architecture in Germany. Their projects have been shown in various international solo and group exhibitions, including the 10th, 13th and 14th Architecture Biennial in Venice and Manifesta 7 in Trento. Kuehn Malvezzi participated in the 1st Chicago Architecture Biennial in 2015 and in the 2nd edition in 2017. In 2019 they were invited to take part in the Lisbon Architecture Triennale.
