Providing the missing link: As pioneers of building information modeling, we close the process chain that links a construction idea to its fabrication.


For years we have enabled non-standard projects of high complexity to take flight and have supported architects, planning experts and manufacturers in reaching new heights of efficiency, safety and quality.


Design-to-Production – we master complexity

Digital Planning

Whether for a competition, a design or a realisation: Design-to-Production supports you with parametric planning, bringing your aspirations of form, function, and construction into harmony.

We create detailed 3D models in fabrication quality, enabling the spatial coordination of different trades, and we generate a reliable basis for the tendering and execution of complex architecture.

Digital Fabrication

With the help of parametric CAD modelling, Design-to-Production initiates a safe and efficient route for you, from concept to machine - from design to production.

We provide 3D construction documentation and process the data required for CNC controlled fabrication, and we ensure that, in the end, all the components fit together perfectly.

Software Design

In addition to projects, Design-to-Production offers tailor-made software solutions, which go far beyond the standard CAD/CAM applications.

Take advantage of our experience in dealing with automation and with the structured processing of complex building components.

Consultancy

In parallel with new technical solutions, the digital transformation of the building industry demands, above all, new ways of thinking. Abandoning the old, well-worn paths lies at the core of our business model, and this has enabled Design-to-Production to become a pioneer in digital building construction.

If you, too, wish to strike out in a new direction and to generate new opportunities, we can support you with sound consultancy based on over ten years of applied research and practical experience.

Design & Development

As an innovative company, Design-to-Production works with both universities and partners in industry on international research projects.

We are involved in specialist conferences, and take part in symposia and review committees. Furthermore we contribute our know-how to development projects, both as external consultants and as expert witnesses for the digital chain.

History

Design-to-Production was founded in 2007 by Fabian Scheurer and Arnold Walz. Together, the IT specialist and the architect soon realised that each of them was active, one at the beginning and one at the end, in the same digital process chain, but that, between these extremes, many links were missing. So they became the first to offer Production-oriented data modelling as an independent service. In 2009 Hanno Stehling joined the team, and then, two years later, Johannes Kuhnen.

The firm, based in a former textile factory in Erlenbach near Zürich as well as in Stuttgart, has enabled over 35 ground-breaking projects to date – cooperating with such renowned architects and architectural offices as SANAA, UN Studio, Zaha Hadid, Shigeru Ban, and Renzo Piano.

Team

A pioneering spirit seems to blow through our lakeside offices. Because, here at Design-to-Production, an interdisciplinary team of highly specialised technical consultants apply just the right amount of curiosity and passion to build quality, efficiency and safety into our digital planning processes.

Fabian Scheurer studied informatics with subsidiary studies in architecture, and began his professional career as an assistant in the CAAD department at the Technical University in Munich. Appointments followed as a software engineer in Munich, as well as a consultant for new media in Zurich. He was a research assistant at the CAAD Chair at the ETH Zurich, where the idea to set up his own company evolved. Fabian Scheurer has been a managing partner at Design-to-Production since 2007, alongside which he has taught as a guest lecturer at the Architectural Association School of Architecture (AA, London), the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalunya (IAAC, Barcelona), and at the HTW Chur, amongst others.

Following an apprenticeship as a carpenter, Johannes Kuhnen graduated in architecture from the University of Kassel. He specialised in digital fabrication, continuing with a Masters so as to deepen his knowledge in this area. At the same time he taught both at the University of Kassel and at the Dessau Institute of Architecture. Joining Design-to-Production, he initially worked on project business, before taking responsibility as process manager for a two year project at Rosskopf + Partner. Today, Johannes Kuhnen is a managing director at Design-to-Production.

Arnold Walz studied architecture and urban planning at the University of Stuttgart, specialising in lightweight construction and planning theory.  Even while still studying, he worked on projects with tricky geometries such as the Olympic Stadium in Montreal or the reconstruction of Gaudi's suspended model for the Colònia Güell Church. He developed scripts to generate and optimise complex building geometries, applying own his approach, namely that these complex geometries should not be drawn but rather be "written", to his work on ambitious designs by notable architects such as Norman Foster or Herzog & de Meuron. Arnold Walz runs Design-to-Production’s Stuttgart office.
