Hermann Kaufmann was born in 1955 in Reuthe, Bregenzerwald, Vorarlberg, the son of an old carpenter's family. At that time the assistance in the parental company was a matter of course and there he got to know very directly the possibilities and the fascination of the building material wood, but also the kind of technical thinking, which significantly influenced his work as an architect. The decision to study architecture was also influenced by his uncle Leopold Kaufmann, a pioneer in timber construction and protagonist of Vorarlberg architectural development, where he learned the tools of the architectural profession as a summer trainee. He completed his studies at the Technical University of Innsbruck and at the Technical University of Vienna, where he was decisively influenced by his teacher Prof. Ernst Hiesmayr.
