Look what was in the welcoming package: Magazines, vouchers, stickers,... a lifesaver reflector (heijastin), etc. Fun to be part of DFG, and looking forward to do-good together in the future.

Architecture + Design


What is Nordic Architecture & Design?

The Studio has been working on this theme in Finland since 1983, and in Germany from 2014 onwards. For past five years, FIN-GER and the students at the Technische Hochschule Würzburg-Schweinfurt (THWS) have discovered some common features: Strong connection with Nature, use of Light, creation of meaningful places, valuing equality, accessibility, democracy, transparency and social responsibilty, human scale, design for life, humanistic functionality, cozy, warm materials, wood, timeless design,...

FIN-GER Concept Studio 2024

In January 2024, the new FIN-GER opened its doors as a Studio at the Kultur- und Kreativzentrum Bürgerbräu. The Studio is located in the former Horse Stables which now serve as a creative space for "Making Ideas".

FIN-GER provides insightful concepts, designs and plans for private, public and commercial clients. The services and products include Architecture & Design, Urban Planning, Graphic Design, Interior Design, Photography and Film. FIN-GER is also specialised in Nordic Lifestyle - with core value of "Love for Life".

FIN-GER Concept Store 2015-2023

In summer 2014, two architects, Juhani Karanka (FIN) and Matthias Braun (GER), met for lunch in the container bar at the Bürgerbräu. During these lunch breaks an idea emerged to open a store for concepts - basically to make a living out of selling ideas. One thing let to another and in 2015 the FIN-GER Finnish-German Concept Store opened its doors in the former Horse Stables at the Bürgerbräu Old Brewery in Würzburg.

FIN-GER was all about creating innovative concepts and making ideas become reality. Since 2015, FIN-GER arranged an ArchitekturAkademie für Kinder and Architecture Biennale, unique events (nanokino, Urban Camping, Camera Obscura, Belvedere, Finnish Sky, etc.), took part in the Restaurant Day and arranged numerous art exhibitions.
After almost ten years of activity, the FIN-GER GbR (company) finally closed at the end of 2023.
