LANGHOF® has set itself a clear objective: to create beautiful living spaces that make life more enjoyable. Of course, the definition of what is beautiful or enjoyable can change depending on the person or the environment. That is why LANGHOF® strives to develop architectural concepts that meet their users’ needs, both inside and out: architecture that is functional and practical while still leaving room for the imagination; that people can identify with proudly; that has stories to tell, while opening vistas to new dimensions. In short, architecture that manages to bridge the gap between individuality and comfort, between the modern zeitgeist and tradition. Architecture that will last. Over a lifetime – and beyond.
Professor Christoph Langhof is a native of Linz, Austria. After studying architecture in Vienna, Düsseldorf and Berlin, he went on to found the Berlin-based eponymous architectural firm in 1978. Since then, LANGHOF® has realized numerous building projects for both public and private clients. As conceptual architects, Christoph Langhof and his team take charge of a project’s preliminary design, design, and artistic supervision.

At present, LANGHOF® is overseeing the highly prestigious “Upper West” project being developed on Breitscheidplatz Square in Berlin’s City West. Additional architectural projects are ongoing in St. Petersburg, Moscow, and Kaliningrad.
