HIRT kinetics® turn buildings into moving architecture by adding movable construction elements that enable walls, windows and fronts to be shifted in multiple dimensions – for truly moving architecture, in every sense of the word.
HIRT kinetics® transform buildings and open up new dimensions in the design of building envelopes, walls and windows. Because HIRT kinetics® turn these elements into dynamic objects that completely transform spaces by merging interior and exterior landscapes or making things visible that were previously hidden. Swiss engineering excellence, ultimate precision and a customizable solution revolutionize the spatial experiences envisioned by pioneering architects and enjoyed by discerning clients. HIRT kinetics® play an important part in providing answers to construction challenges of the future, where architects approach buildings with a more dynamic and multidimensional vision.
Imagine a lobby becoming part of the cityscape. HIRT and the Century Plaza Los Angeles
When it’s nice and warm outside, the 7-meter high HIRT kinetics® transform the lobby of the Century Plaza in Los Angeles into an integrative part of downtown LA, sharing in its sounds, scents and the California way of life.

Our Commitment to Quality
HIRT kinetics® is produced in Switzerland according to the highest quality standards. No matter where in the world they are installed, the mechanical components are always Swiss precision work. Every HIRT kinetics® is custom made here in Switzerland and delivered to our partners on site as a ready-for-assembly solution. To this end, HIRT moving architecture built a network of partners across the globe who are as committed to quality as we are. Thanks to intensive training and continuous education, we can vouch for all our partners. The official partners of HIRT moving architecture are specialist companies that know and take into account the local conditions and legislation in their countries.
Stefan Hirt, CEO
HIRT kinetics® turns buildings into moving architecture. When building elements that are normally static suddenly start to move, this is a moment of great surprise and wonder. By adding the dimension of movement to architecture, our solutions turn buildings into works of art while at the same time delivering a highly functional system.
