With our long-standing commitment in Sweden, we have made thorough preparations, and our new office in Djurgården in the central part of Stockholm is, therefore, the natural next step in our Scandinavian strategy. Our aim is to grow in each of the Scandinavian countries by offering impact-based architectural advice with a deep local understanding.
New partner to head Swedish office
Markus Grieser has been brought in as a partner and the manager of our office in Stockholm. He comes with experience as a former assignment manager at Sweco and Tyréns, and his collaboration with us goes all the way back to the development of the new university hospital in Örebro, a project competition that we won with Sweco in 2013.
“During the last few years, I have collaborated with AART on several Swedish projects, and I fit perfectly into AART’s culture. We are driven by the same values and the same goals to use architecture as a catalyst for developing organisations and communities. I, therefore, look forward to utilising my experience to ensure the continued development of AART in a Swedish context,” stated Markus Grieser.
Swedish success during COVID-19
Our Swedish office was ready to open when COVID-19 came to Scandinavia. Despite COVID-19, we have stood by our Swedish commitment and our strategic, Scandinavian aim – and done so successfully. Moreover, as partner and CEO Torben Skovbjerg Larsen stated:
“There is a feeling of hope in the Swedish construction and real estate industry, and with deep respect to the current COVID-19 guidelines, we are already in a good dialogue with several Swedish clients. This dialogue has led to some new relationships and it has already paved the way for new and exciting projects in Sweden.”
