Entrepreneurship with a sense of family since 109 years
Looking back on the company’s history that spans well over a century, it is striking how HUF HAUS have always challenged traditional build methods – advancing technologies without sacrificing the charm and character of treasured architectural styles. In the early 1970s HUF HAUS developed the technique of producing iconic timber and glass architecture off-site and revolutionised the classical timber frame construction industry. Today, the company is led by the fourth generation of the Huf family and has established itself as the European market leader for modern post-and-beam homes. HUF HAUS the Original: often imitated but never outdone in quality and individuality.
Your project is in good hands
If you are looking for a reliable partner to build a house, one of the most important life decisions, you will be in good hands with HUF HAUS!
The name HUF represents the aspiration and commitment of a family that has been placing equal emphasis on commercial strength and stability as on managers and employees taking responsibility for the continuity of the business. This sharing and constructive approach creates the motivation for exceptional performance. Our carefully selected suppliers are not "sub-contractors" but equal partners who are actively involved in the continuous improvement of the HUF House
In the spring of 2021, after a quarter of a century heading the company, CEO Georg Huf shall be stepping down from the role of Managing Director and all its duties. He will entrust this revered role to a partnership of his son Benedikt Huf and nephew Christian Huf who follow their Fathers’, Grandfathers’, and Great Grandfathers’ footsteps navigating the successful operation of their company. Sustainable Living signifies looking and working towards the future while learning from the past – the HUF HAUS’ interpretation of ‘future-proof’. This ethos is reflected in the HUF Family succession, as Benedikt Huf, 33, and Christian Huf, 32, represent the 4th Generation of Hufs to take over the operational duties as new Managing Directors.
Georg Huf was Managing Partner of HUF HAUS for 25 years.
Born and raised in Hartenfels, the birthplace of HUF HAUS, Georg entered the company as a Regional Sales Representative in 1981, exactly 40 years ago. With a career spanning four decades, its safe to say there is nothing he does not know about HUF HAUS.
Georg Huf became the New Generation Managing Director himself, when he took the helm from his father Franz Huf in 1996. His extensive knowledge and enthusiasm have cemented the success of the family company - setting the course for expansion into foreign markets.
His personal involvement evolved HUF HAUS’ representation and effectiveness in the Global Marketplace, thus creating a platform to further develop the company group and brand. It was through his achievement that HUF HAUS and their Team of Merry Men now famously deliver the highest quality turnkey projects worldwide!
Georg Huf will support and advise the new management team and handle specialist tasks within the company, benefitting the new partnership with his many years of invaluable and inspirational experience.
Christian Huf, CEO HUF HAUS
In 2014, the 32-year-old joined the family business and initially managed the HUF HAUS show house in Stuttgart before taking responsibility for the project coordination of all HUF projects at the company headquarters. Since October 2019, the young entrepreneur has been representing the interests of the prefab industry as a board member of the "Bundesverband Deutscher Fertigbau e.V." (BDF) and is now responsible for sales of the entire HUF HAUS portfolio.
Benedikt Huf, CEO HUF HAUS
He started his career in the family business in July 2012. During this time, he deepened his knowledge of the processes in the various departments and was responsible for, among other things, financing processing and production planning for Germany and Europe. Today, the managing partner is responsible for the entire commercial management of the company with six subsidiaries.
HUF HAUS is a family run company with 109 years’ experience of innovative design and construction.
In a revolutionary shift, HUF HAUS created the ‘FACHWERKHAUS’ (post and beam house) 2000’ in 1972 – a flagship design that would underpin the company’s architectural approach for years to come. Over 40 years later, ‘FACHWERKHAUS 2000’ has evolved to deliver energy efficient and sustainable homes, demonstrating the forward thinking ethos integral to HUF HAUS, which remains ahead of its time.
The HUF HAUS ethos has expanded to include various sister companies including StilART, the HUF HAUS bespoke furniture company; MalerBodenART, which specialises in exclusive floor coverings, rendering and painting; and GartenART – which oversees gardens and landscape architecture.
Now in its third generation, HUF HAUS is preparing to welcome its fourth generation of the Huf family to the helm.
The HUF HAUS philosophy delineates that a luxury lifestyle and eco-friendly approach are not mutually exclusive. This has led the company to refine every component of its designs continuously to achieve the pinnacle of maximum energy efficiency, all the while retaining and improving the aesthetic quality and desirability of its homes.
Planning, building, financing, fitting-out and handing over a ready to occupy, highly customised HUF house to the customer is a complex process that requires perfect teamwork from all involved. Employees at HUF HAUS therefore must possess not only professional competence but also an outstanding level of team spirit. To develop this team spirit and ensure it endures, it is embedded as a deep foundation of the corporate culture of HUF HAUS.
A worthwhile goal - enthusiastic and satisfied customers.
Each HUF House is unique and, as befits an architect-designed house, uses no "standard blueprint" plans. Rather, customers' wishes are captured in a bespoke design that takes into account the location and context of the site. This is the very reason why team work begins at the outset with the consultation and planning phase. It continues through production planning, manufacturing, assembly and fit-out. A team of specialists works together on each task and brings to every one a further quality - enthusiasm for the amazing product that is a HUF house and for each project that is only complete when the householders share that same enthusiasm, fully satisfied with the end result.
