The architect Daniel Schöning (1969) has been a managing partner of WRS ARCHITEKTEN & STADT-PLANER GMBH since 2010 together with Axel Winckler and Stefan Röhr-Kramer, following his self-employment with his office Schöning Spalt Architekten between 2003 and 2010. Daniel Schöning studied design at the Hochschule für Gestaltung in Offenbach as well as architecture at the TU Darmstadt. As a combination of those two disciplines, the interior has always been his particular interest and passion.
Daniel Schöning’s architechtural designs cover refurbishment and conversion measures for private owners as well as exclusive creative direction for international companies. His projects are characterized by fully exploiting the potentialities and limits of material, form and light. The architect’s work comprises numerous projects, which exhibit a distinct clarity and beauty, resulting from the combination of untreated materials and clear functionality. He likes to design with the contrasting language of shapes by combining traditional architectural elements with modern, contemporary style. This architectural language simultaneously respects the existing factors of a place as well as allows for the specific wishes of the client.
The very own quality of metal, wood, concrete and glass in combination with clear and coherent floor plans, that have been customised to the clients’ needs, define his minimalist style.
In January 2015 Daniel Schöning was commissioned by HamburgMusik gGmbH with the interior furnishing of the Elbphilharmonie, following his work on interiors and furniture for different cultural locations in Hamburg: at Kampnagel, he converted the „K3“ into a Center for Choreography by
inserting a house in a house from exposed concrete. In the Laeiszhalle Daniel Schöning redesigned the Brahmsfoyer as well as the counter hall.
Together with Hamburg-based design office Studio Besau-Marguerre, the interdisciplinary team realised the interior concept and furnishing for the spectacular concert hall Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg and designed a range of furniture specifically for this project.
The furniture concept, that in addition to the foyers of the Grand and the Small Concert Hall also includes the three lounges, the conductors’ and solists’ suites as well as the rehearsal rooms, subtly corresponds with the spectacular architectural concept by Herzog & de Meuron.
