The office Bauereignis was founded in 2007 by Katharina Sütterlin (Dipl. Ing. architect, carpenter) and Susanne Wagner (Dipl. Ing. interior design). They came to know each other at the Nürtigen primary school in Berlin Kreuzberg which both their children attended. The format of today´s projects finds its roots in the first projects Katharina and Susanne lead together at the school back then. What started out as parental commitment soon became a full-time professional occupation in the design of school spaces.
Since 2018, we are pleased to receive an annual subsidy from the Berlin Senate for Education, Youth and Family: the contributions support our work in cultural education as well as our consultancy services for management teams.
Bauereignis’ work is certified with the seal “besonders entwicklungsfördernd” (highly development supportive) within the category “Räume, die bewegen” (spaces which move and make a difference). You may find the report here.
Bauereignis is invited to present its work during congresses, seminars and workshops nationwide. We provide regular advice for the processes concerning school development. Katharina Sütterlin was a member of the issue group commissioned to study the enhancement of school space quality (“Facharbeitsgruppe Schulraumqualität, FAG-SRQ). The group was brought together by the Berlin Senator for Education Sandra Scheeres. The paper issued trendsetting recommendations for the further development of Berlin schools. Bauereignis is currently on the advisory committee developing the template on how Berlin´s new schools should be furnished.
