Philipp Nitsche founded his own architecture office Studio Nitsche in 2014. Since then, he has largely worked on the design and construction of high-end apartment buildings as well as many renovation projects. He designed and constructed a villa on Lake Como, Italy, as well as various penthouses in Munich, Germany.
Furthermore, he also was the producer and architect for the Pavilion of the Republic of Kosovo at the 56th La Biennale di Venezia, with the artist Flaka Haliti. Since then he has been involved as an architect and producer in different art projects, exhibition displays and art installations in public space. Recently, he has collaborated with the artist Jonas von Ostrowski on the building of ‘the house with clear shapes and a complex entrance’ which is considered to be first inhabitable sculpture at the ‘Los Angeles’ art project in Günsterode, Germany.
He received his master’s degree in urbanism at the Technical University of Munich. During his studies, he focused on urban planning issues in so called ‘cities in conflict’ like Mitrovica in Kosovo, for example, where people with diverse cultural backgrounds live in close quarters.
Nitsche studied architecture in Dessau, Germany and Chicago, Illinois. He also gathered practical experience at Wheeler Kearns Architects in the US.
