Company

QNA is a curious international urban design and architectural practice, based in Innsbruck Austria.
Specialized on complex urban conditions, QNA produces surprising but simple solutions. The portfolio of the company encompasses all areas of design, from the urban scale to interior design. Of central concern to the practice is the simultaneous engagement in practice, teaching and urban research.
