Hemma Fasch is a founding partner of Fasch & Fuchs Architekten, and a visiting professor at TU Vienna. Together with Jakob Fuchs, they have founded their architectural practice in 1994, with offices in Vienna and Hausmannstätten. In 2011 the team was supplemented with Fred Hofbauer.
The works of Fasch & Fuchs Architekten are characterized by sophisticated constructions and a subtle use of daylight. The office has been awarded for multiple educational and cultural projects. In 2021 they were nominated for the Mies van der Rohe Award/ European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture, for their project School Campus Neustift, in Tyrol, Austria.
School Campus Neustift was a winning project of the competition “A school of tomorrow”, by Tyrol municipality and council. In their reasoning, the jury stated:
“Fasch & Fuchs architects succeeded in integrating the extensive spatial program into the landscape as a matter of course. Their idea of laying a large part of the volume between a two-storey building along the street and the tower-like boarding school at the lower end of the property like a green carpet over the slope - was ingenious.”
