Meet our house designers

When you are planning your new home, you want to find the right architect who can translate your ideas into reality. At Baufritz, you don't need to waste time searching, because we have five exceptional, award-winning designers in-house.

Our team of house designers

Our in-house architects and designers are talented, practically minded, cost conscious and experienced in designing high-profile architectural projects in the UK. They expertly apply our off-site timber construction system, technical installations and finishes to design statement architecture that meets the highest efficiency and ecological standards.

Oliver Rehm

Oliver graduated from the University of Rosenheim, Germany, with a diploma in Architectural Engineering and Interior Design in 1998. Rosenheim is a world-renowned institute for timber engineering and off-site construction. Oliver has decades of experience in this field of construction and is also the founder of Baufritz in the UK.

“My designs are influenced by my love of nature, especially the alpine area of Bavaria where I grew up and live. Nature teaches you that the best designs are simple and modest. The perfect house is a happy space that connects people and nature and provides just enough room.”
