Amunt started in 2009 as a collaboration between Bjoern Martenson (1966), Sonja Nagel (1972) and Jan Theissen (1972), with independent offices in Aachen and in Stuttgart. The JustK House in Tubingen was their first joint project. Among other prizes, they have been awarded the Weissenhof-Architekturfoerderpreis for Young Architects in 2010, the Hugo-Haring-Prize in 2011, and the German Architecture Prize in 2013. Their JustK project won first prize at the international AR-Awards in 2011. Their Schreber project, the renovation and extension of a miner's house, was presented in the German Pavilion at the 2012 Venice Architecture Biennale as part of the Reduce/Reuse/Recycle exhibition.
