LXSY Architekten is an architectural practice in Berlin founded in 2015 by Kim Le Roux and Margit Sichrovsky. Hailing from South Africa and Germany, they bring together differing perspectives on everyday life and the needs of society. This diversity of viewpoints is enhanced by the international LXSY Architekten team. 

In our opinion, good architecture is all about people: enabling communication and underpinning a sense of community and identity. To foster a sustainable coexistence, we develop innovative approaches to working and living. We are curious about other perspectives and seek to bring people together who want to change how we live, work and coexist. Working at different scales, we design spaces for an ever-changing society, seeking to forge dialogues, new communities and relationships.

We are advocates of architecture's ability to promote a sustainable future. In our work as architects, we are aware of the social, cultural and ecological challenges and our own responsibility. We want to rethink architecture and help shift towards a just and liveable society. We regard the interplay of planet, environment and people as a living ecosystem and see a key role for sustainable change in resource-conserving, circular planning and building.

Change begins in a holistic design process. Those who think differently will inevitably design differently. With the claim to plan and build innovatively, we are committed to co-creation and participation. We enter into a collaborative and participatory process at eye level with our clients and project partners. As women in architecture, we bring a fresh perspective to our profession and also seek to establish new approaches and structures of collaboration. We forge a culture of courage, appreciation and experimentation.

In 2021, Kim Le Roux and Margit Sichrovsky were appointed as members of the national architectural association, the BDA Berlin. The LXSY Architekten founders first met during their master's studies at the TU Berlin, where they worked towards a joint master's thesis on a township upgrading programme in Cape Town, setting them on track to found their own practice. Margit has been part of the "Sustainable Planning and Building" working group of the Berlin Chamber of Architects since 2022. LXSY Architekten have already won several awards for their projects.
