Dear Friends!
We are pleased to invite you to the opening of MENTAL HOT SPOT (OOW-ART NO2) and look forward to an inspiring evening with you and the artists! Drinks will be served. Please let us know if you can join via the RSVP link.



Architecture creates physical spaces for real, haptic experiences. In its accessibility, it defines spatial structures that, as guides, stimulate meaningful but also creative use of themselves. This dynamic generates the possibility of productive access to environments in which life can take place and flourish. Works of art – whether on their own or in interplay with each other – also create spaces. The exhibition MENTAL HOT SPOT is curated by Tim Plamper and deals with these mental spaces by exploring alternative approaches to the perception of reality and surroundings. In doing so, the artworks – similar to architectural-spatial landmarks – have the function of a marker to point beyond their physical boundaries. In the vital aesthetic experience, the artworks have a real effect on the development of culture, the society, and our coexistence. In this process, a space unfolds which marks »mental hot spots« on many different levels to stimulate a lively exchange among those present.

We design

Von der Planung für Unternehmen bis zum Wohnungsbau: Die preisgekrönten Berliner Architekten von OOW designen, entwerfen und gestalten sowohl Hochbauten wie Innenräume. Kraftvoll, fokussiert und mutig.

260 Grad

A bar that captures the light of Berlin during the day and glows magically from within in the evening: With the rooftop bar 260 Grad, OOW shows how modern architecture makes optimal use of light and creates a unique atmosphere in a space.

Casa Locarno

“Casa Locarno is something like our business card turned into a house: sustainability, a prefabricated wood construction, frameless corner glazing... we did set OOW’s bar really high, right down to the last detail and in one of our first projects!”

Hidden Idyll

Living at Leopoldplatz

In the heart of Wedding, a residential oasis surrounded by greenery is being created on a former commercial site. In the immediate vicinity of the lively Leopoldplatz, our new residential building occupies a spacious property, quiet and hidden behind the first row of houses on Nazarethkirchstrasse. Fun fact: originally OOW was only asked to design to medical practices on the site by the client!

Conrade. Clarity.

Architecture as Architecture

Wie denken wir Architektur? Was beeinflusst uns? Und wie sieht unsere tägliche Arbeit aus? Unsere Architekten erzählen.

Meri Siren

"Elegant proportions, high-end materials and sophisticated details: my ingredients for a perfect building. The art of architecture is to create designs that are both functional and well designed."

Robert Blödorn

"Es ist irre, wie schnell sich ein Projekt verändern kann. Aber es ist unglaublich spannend, welche verschiedene Ideen man für ein Gebäude entwickeln kann und wie unterschiedlich sich Räume im Prinzip nutzen lassen. "

Leda Kremmyda

"It's thrilling to visit one of your own designs and realize how well it works."

Carsten Bergner

"Wenn Entwürfe wirklich umgesetzt werden, kommen unsere Gedankenspiele auch beim Menschen an. Und erst dann ist der Sinn von Architektur erfüllt, finde ich."

designyougo rebrands to OOW!

After 10 successful years as designyougo we are ready for a new, powerful name.
Three letters that are a perfect match for us – OOW!

How to pronounce OOW?

Change is a big part in the life of an architect. To paraphrase our mentor, Norman Foster: “The only constant is change.” Every day we change the city and the lives of its inhabitants a little bit. So we also change – and are giving ourselves a new name!

What remains unchanged are the strengths we have developed over the last 10 years, which will also be the basis for OOW: our passion, our way of working and our experienced team giving its best every day. We look forward to great projects with our great customers!
