Purpose

From our offices in Aarhus, Copenhagen, Oslo and Stockholm, we help clients all over Scandinavia develop organisations and communities with architecture as a catalyst. This is our purpose, which has driven our work in architecture for 20 years.

Purpose

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 – with the aim 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™.

We make an impact

That is our promise. It drives our work every day and everything we do. Our desire to design is, therefore, never without the will to follow up. Because, by following up, we gain well-documented knowledge of the impact-based potential of architecture – socially, economically and environmentally. We are thus the first architectural firm in Scandinavia to have established an interdisciplinary impact team who systematically revisit our completed buildings and urban spaces.

Impact-based consultancy

Our desire to design is never without the will to follow up.

We work across scale and sector

As a full-service architectural firm, we provide consulting across scale and sector. We do this based on a holistic focus, where we include the right skills at the right times in the process. At the same time, we make a virtue of engaging in dialogue with our customers and listening to their visions, so that together we can challenge the framework for the given project – with the aim to create the greatest possible impact on both the social, economic and environmental bottom line.

We are ambitious by nature

We are ambitious by nature – not only in relation to materials and constructions, but also in exploring and challenging our client's visions. Because, we set the bar high in all projects, but we always do so in close dialogue with our clients. Over the years, it has led to a long list of award-winning projects – including Musholm in Korsør, Denmark, which has been awarded the world's most socially inclusive building by the IAUD and one of the world's most visionary sports facilities by the IOC.
