Profile

Open South North Architecture Practice follows two concurrent activities. One is the classical work of architects, which is driven by our enthusiasm to engage in the construction of the built environment and an interest for the particular building project. The second activity is consulting in order to positively influence building projects from an early stage on and to respond to the need for experts, managing the soaring complexity of building processes. This results in collaborations at various scales – from the facilitation of communication processes over the development of designs to the construction of highly specialized buildings. OSNAP is committed to offer its clients innovative designs combined with state of the art engineering solutions.

OSNAP Sarajevo was founded in 2007. Since 2014 OSNAP Vienna is active in Vienna and beyond. Common projects are implemented as joint ventures.
