About us

Redefining architecture™

We continually strive to redefine the notion of architecture. Nothing less. And yes, it is an ambitious vision, but an essential one since architecture is too significant to be reduced to simply aesthetics, as is often the case in the public debate. Architecture as something impactful is absent, and we want to change that. Our ambitious aim is to open people’s eyes to the importance of architecture in developing organisations and societies. That's what we mean when we talk about Redefining architecture™.

Powerful catalyst

Cities and buildings are powerful catalysts. This is where the key to transforming and improving the most fundamental frameworks for our lives lies – the places where we live, learn, work and everything in between. That is why we work with architecture, not simply to make the world more beautiful, but to realise the visions we encounter every day in our conversations with clients and the discussions that shape society locally and globally.

From design to documentation

Our work with architecture extends far beyond designing buildings and urban spaces. It is just as much about documenting the impact we create through our architecture. That is why we work strategically to gain insight into the impact of our completed projects - powerful insight that enables us to bring architecture into play as a catalyst for transforming organisations and society.

Award-winning projects

We set the bar high in everything we do. Throughout the years, this has resulted in an impressive list of projects that have been recognised worldwide, not only for their aesthetic qualities, but in particular for their capacity to transform and improve the way we live, learn and work - from the Waterfront in Stavanger, named the world’s best residential development, to Musholm in Korsør, named the world’s most socially inclusive development.
