We set architecture in motion. HIRT kinetics® are movable building elements that make façades and walls disappear.
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, they completely transform spaces by merging interior and exterior landscapes or making things visible that were previously hidden. Swiss engineering excellence, ultimate precision and taylored solutions let pioneering architects and discerning clients redefine how we experience the space that surrounds us.

”Walls shape buildings and create boundaries, yet their function is determined by the spaces between them.Stefan Hirt
HIRT kinetics® have proven themselves in the harshest climates. Whether salty coastal gushes, tropical humidity or snow storms – just close your HIRT kinetics® and you are safe and cozy.
HIRT kinetics® are absolutely safe in operation due to strict compliance with EN standards and CE conformity. They are an excellent protection against burglaries and can be fitted with the material of your choice to provide the protection that you need.
All HIRT kinetics® are tailor-made solutions. Take inspiration from our project examples and tell us about your project.
Our Commitment to Quality
HIRT kinetics® are produced in Switzerland to the highest quality standards. No matter where in the world they are installed, the mechanics are always Swiss precision work. All HIRT kinetics® are made to specification in Switzerland and assembled on site. Our partners across the globe are as committed to quality as we are. Thanks to intensive training and continuous education, we can vouch for all of them. The official partners of HIRT moving architecture are specialists who account for local conditions and apply local building codes.
Stefan Hirt, CEO
HIRT kinetics® turn buildings into moving architecture. The movement of components that are expected to be static is surprising and thrilling. The broadening of architecture by the dimension of movement gives every building something special and is at the same time highly functional.
