St.Gallen office


Bollhalder Walser Architektur AG, ETH SIA


Feldlistrasse 31A, 9000 St.Gallen


The work of Bollhalder Walser Architektur is characterised by an intensive preoccupation with architecture of different scales and typologies. We see urban planning, and social and ecological considerations as the basis of all architectural design. We greatly respect the tradition of open architectural competitions in Switzerland; a significant proportion of our built projects are the result of such competitions.
Markus Bollhalder and August Eberle established the practice together in 1981 in St. Gallen. In 2011, a second office was opened in Zurich. Since 2013, the practice has been led by Markus Bollhalder, August Eberle, Raphael Bollhalder and Christian Walser. More

In over forty years of practice, the office has acquired extensive expertise in the interdisciplinary planning and realisation of complex projects in all project phases. A love for detail and an enthusiasm for architecture are always at the centre of every project.
For us, good dialogue with our clients is essential. We see honesty and openness – but also independence – as the foundation for working together. In everyday office life, encourage independent working and a culture of open discussion among our team. We take responsibility in training apprentices, and offering internships.
Bollhalder Walser Architektur develops undertakes feasibility studies, concept designs, architectural competitions and other kinds of studies for both architecture and urban design projects. The consultation with public and private clients is just as much a part of the office’s expertise as complete project planning, detail design and cost management, up to and including construction management. If desired, the practice can assume overall responsibility as general planner.
