BAEK Architekten was founded in Berlin by Architect Han Yeol Baek in 2017. We focus on Context, Function and Space as main themes of designs. Our aim is to achieve concise and clear architectural language. Based in Berlin and with a cooperation of international partners, we take on a wide spectrum of projects varying in scale, from urban design to architectural details.
