Herfried Peyker spent a year as assistant at Ljubljana Technical University following his studies at Graz Technical University. He has also worked for professor Edo Ravnikar.
From 1976 to 1981 he worked at Werkgruppe Graz, and in 1982, together with Werner Nussmüller and Nikolaus Schuster, he founded the architects’ office Gruppe 3.
Peyker started his own office in 1995 and since then his work has focussed on urban planning, spatial development and in particular, on public buildings and social housing. This earned him many awards, especially in residential and timber construction.
Since 1998, together with Hermann Eisenköck, he has been managing partner of Architektur Consult ZT GmbH.
