Our studio does conceptual design in the broad field of culture. We have the aim to create awareness and to share knowledge. The working process of the studio is characterised by direct communication, clear structures and transparent procedures. A close cooperation and collaboration with all participants are the basis of our commitment to project partners.

 

Founded in 2009 in the east of Germany and operated as a collective since 2014, we have been represented in France since 2018. In 2020 the studio was renamed from Bureau David Voss to Bureau Est.

 

If you have any project proposals or questions you are very welcome to get in touch with us.
