2. WHO WE ARE (history, partners, company name)
Founding partners Daniel Klos (*1980, Zurich) and Radek Brunecký (*1982, Brno) studied architecture at ETH
Zurich and VUT Brno respectively. Almost ten years ago, they met each other in Rotterdam.
The two have studied and worked with a number of the world’s leading contemporary architects, including:
Jean Nouvel (Paris), OMA/Rem Koolhaas and Maurice Nio (Rotterdam), SeARCH (Amsterdam), Herzog & de
Meuron (ETH studio Basel), Berrel Berrel Kräutler, e2a and Christian Kerez (Zurich).
Daniel Klos holds the title of MSc ETH in architecture. Radek Brunecký holds the title Ing. arch. in the field
“architecture and urban design”. He is also a member of the Czech board of architecture and authorised
architect (CKA 4157)
Today, Daniel and Radek like to implement their considerable combined knowledge and experience in a handson
approach to every project. They are inspired by rapidly changing phenomena in contemporary culture, the
development of international architecture as well as the tradition of great Czech architects and artists, both at
home and abroad.
The name KLOSBRUNECKÝ is intentionally written without space, hyphen or ‘and’. It is a new word. For when
we work together, the result is neither one nor the other. It is a combination of both, a completely new thing.
Neither one of us is KLOSBRUNECKÝ, KLOSBRUNECKÝ is what we do.
3. DESIGNING AND BUILDING (“philosophy”)
A central motif of our work is context. This is not to be confused with the trendy, yet often merely cosmetic
visual adaptation and subordination to the buildings in the nearest vicinity of the site. An in‐depth dealing with
context requires a profound analysis and synthesis of the specific conditions of each individual project. This
process includes aspects that are functional, formal, technological, economic, legal, ecologic, sensual, social,
cultural and so on. While firmly rooted in knowledge and education, we ultimately strive to discover,
understand and add positively to the contemporary condition. To find and use the ultimate potential of the
very now and here in each project is what really excites us.
While an individual theoretical base is indispensable in a time of fluid values, what really counts in the end is
what you build. You cannot talk, if you cannot make it happen. As architects, we can only succeed in close
cooperation and good relationship with you, our clients and in respect and real interest for your specific needs,
including your budget. We assist you from the first idea to the finished building. We believe in a strong
collaboration between architects, specialists, suppliers, public authorities ‐ anyone involved in the building
process. In this field of synergy, it is possible to develop solutions that are truly specific: original and often
unexpected, of high architectural quality, integral awareness and sustainability.
