Alexander Hagner and Ulrike Schartner founded the architecture studio gaupenraub+/- in 1999. Both Ulrike and Alexander had studied at the University of Applied Arts for 3 years with Johannes Spalt before continuing for 5 years with Wolf D. Prix. Since then, they've worked as external lecturers for various Universities and Institutes, such as the Vienna University of Technology, holding workshops at Vienna's BOKU, NDU St. Pölten, TU-Graz and KTH-Stockholm. Some of their most renowned works include the "Eiermuseum" they've designed for sculptor Wander Bertoni in Winden am See, which has won the "Burgenland Prize for Architecture"and was nominated for the Mies van der Rohe Award, as well as the refurbishment and extension of MCM Klosterfrau Melissengeist that received the ETHOUSE Award and the recent redesign of the offices of Franz Schellhorn's Agenda Austria. Beyond that, for the past ten years gaupenraub has engaged in social projects, such as "Vinzi Rast", but also Memobil furniture for people living with dementia or "VinziRast-mittendrin", where students and formerly homeless people live together, which has been granted the Urban Living Award 2013.
