Architecture is always the outcome of intensive and complex teamwork. A transparent planning structure is an essential prerequisite and the tool employed by baumschlager eberle in their architectural work.

 Controlling interdisciplinary ideas and activities is a key component of planning. It paves the way for recognition of the multi-faceted wishes and requirements of the client and their incorporation into the planning process.
 A building designed by baumschlager eberle is characterised and largely determined by its context. It is the end product of a value-adding process based on a consideration of urban development, typological and building construction aspects.
 For baumschlager eberle sustainability means not only taking due account of energy-related factors, but also developing an appreciation of aesthetic, social and cultural values. Only architecture respected by occupants and passers-by alike and valued in the literal sense of the word will endure, thus attaining a special form of sustainability. 
 The architectural objective pursued by baumschlager eberle is to generate the maximum utility value while taking up a cultural position that is of no less significance.
