“We are still in contact with our clients after the implementation, and so we have a constant reflection of our work. We approach each project with a challenge and strive for maximum individual approach to our clients. There is no small and big project for us. ”

As the architects themselves say, they work to create beautiful, elegant and original buildings under the Stempel & Carpenter brand. They have to serve their users perfectly to the last detail. “We have a number of accomplishments, studies and rich experiences with residential, administrative, civil and industrial buildings.” After completing the construction, they continue to be interested in her further fate and how she does. “The house is a child for us, it can not be postponed at any stage. We do not abandon it even after it’s finished. We are interested in how the house is serving and aging.” Both architects are the authors not only of buildings but also of several books. In them, as they themselves say, they are trying to promote good architecture.
