The architecture office Ritter Schumacher AG was founded January 1, 2014 from the fusion of architektschumacher ag and Ritter Jon Architekten AG.  In 1967 Christian Schumacher, father of Michael Schumacher, opened his office and in 2000 Michael took over. In the same year Jon Ritter opened his own architecture office in Chur and Vaduz. The fusion of both offices took place in 2014. Currently Ritter Schumacher AG employs approximately 40 staff: architects, draftsmen, interior designers, interns, 3d artists, graphic designers, project managers, construction supervisors, administrative and marketing employees.
