After studying design & theory at the ESAA Duperré in Paris, she studied architecture at the ENSA Versailles, the TU Berlin and graduated with a Master of Arts in Architecture at the UdK Berlin. She worked from 2012 as a freelance architect for Raumlabor (Berlin), Museumstechnik Berlin in collaboration with David Chipperfield Architects (Berlin), Lacaton & Vassal (Paris), in the fields of scenography, urbanism and social housing.
In her architectural practice, she focuses mostly on renovations of 1930's buildings, based on a contextual approach an extensive investigation of Bauhaus typologies and the work of Charlotte Perriand and Bruno Taut. In 2017, she co-founded the interior architecture practice M S Studio, where she applied her chromatic and contextual approach in several renovation projects in Germany, France, Spain and Switzerland.
As demonstrated among others by her work as a member of the collective Enter This she co-founded in 2014 in Berlin, and the long-term process Repensar la Periferia, Salomé Wackernagel is also specialized in collaborative processes and self-construction in the public space, working on architectural, social and cultural projects in different urban and rural contexts.
