Thomas Kröger founded his studio in 2001 in Berlin after working with the architects Norman Foster and Max Dudler. Since the studio’s foundation, Thomas Kröger and his team have gained extensive experience working with private, national and international clients. The array of projects varies between private homes, offices, commercial spaces, museums and art galleries.
 
Kröger has received ample attention in the trade press for the original, timeless design of his private homes, small apartment buildings, and especially his repurposing projects, in which he pays homage to historical architectural typologies and period details, and custom-designs fixtures in line with the client’s wishes. He has designed a number of projects in the region of Uckermark in Brandenburg, where the countryside and vernacular architectural traditions have offered a rich source of inspiration. Kröger also draws inspiration from his far-flung travels and the traditional materials and styles of architecture in Asia, Africa and South America.
 
He is a member of the BDA. Thomas Kröger has been guest critic in architecture schools in Germany and abroad. He was invited to teach at the department of architecture of the Northeastern University of Boston in its Berlin study program. 2014 he was a visiting professor of architecture at the HFT Stuttgart.
 
'Thomas Kröger creates a fascinating dialogue between contemporary spaces and the layered traces of history around them. Sometimes he does this by repurposing old buildings; other times, he chooses a vocabulary of design that tells a special story, as if the architecture were conveying a message from the past', states Jenni Reuter, curator of the lecture series.
