SOY develops extraordinary real estate projects in unique locations.
With passion.
And with respect for people and nature.


A house is built to create the best possible setting for our life and work as human beings. It offers refuge, protection from the elements and a place of community and creativity.

Building is always also an intervention in nature. For this reason, we begin every project by looking at the place and its environment with an open mind. In our properties, we seek to create a connection between the people who live there and the surrounding natural world.

Our luxury is the time and care we take to consider every detail.  
To us, luxury means reduction to what is essential.

Everything else is just bling-bling.

Who we are

SOY sees itself as an international network of people who – each in their own sphere – take on their tasks, fill our projects with life and propel them forward with their blood, sweat and passion. What connects us is our dedication to holistically conceived, ecologically sustainable architecture, mutual appreciation and respect.

The initiator and driving force of SOY is Alexandra Schmitz, who, as managing partner, sits at the nodal point of all our activities. Even after nearly 20 years as an architect, she hasn’t lost an ounce of her enthusiasm. Quite the opposite. With each SOY project, she explores new avenues by which to contribute to shaping our future – step by step, in a continual learning process, with an entrepreneurial spirit, responsibility and (just a little bit of) respect.

How we work

We comprehensively steward each of our projects – from the initial idea on viewing a new parcel of land, right through to the sale of the property. We constantly strive to develop properties that are custom-tailored to their location, embody the highest architectural standards and intervene only minimally in nature. What’s more: right from the outset, we make nature an essential component of every project.

For us, sustainability isn’t a buzzword. It’s what drives us above all else.
We like to talk. More than that, we love to do.

Would you like to join us?  
We look forward to your call or e-mail.
