Danish roots. Nordic reach.
With 150 employees in Aarhus, Copenhagen and Oslo, we are a leading Nordic architecture company. In our work, we transcend the traditional typologies. Instead, we take on projects where there is something at stake for our clients and communities, projects where we can make a difference. We are currently contributing to the development of more than 1,000,000 square metres throughout the Nordic countries – including prestigious projects such as Nicolinehus in Aarhus, Denmark's Rowing Stadium in the outskirts of Copenhagen, the Viking Museum in Oslo and Stavanger University Hospital, which is the largest building project in the Nordic countries.
Opportunities with added value.
Our work with architecture goes far beyond designing buildings. For us, it is equally important to document the impact we make through our architecture. We, therefore, visit our completed buildings. We do this in collaboration with anthropologists and organisation analysts, who over the years have documented our work. With projects such as Musholm, we have strengthened the quality of life for people with disabilities. The Culture Yard revitalised Helsingør's waterfront and VUC Syd gives school dropouts a chance to get back into education. Common to all these projects is how we have created opportunities with added value – both socially and economically.
Sustainable lifestyle pioneer.
Cities and buildings are among the most powerful catalysts in the transition to a more sustainable society. Therefore, we work strategically to provide new perspectives on how buildings can adapt to the climate and bring nature into cities. We do this through research collaborations with Aarhus University and through our commitment to the sustainability thinktank, Sustainia, where we are a lifestyle pioneer in Sustainia Living – a global initiative focusing on transforming the UN's global goals into tomorrow’s business opportunities. In addition, we are a member of the UN Global Compact and we provide certified advice as a passive house designer and DGNB consultant.

Partner group and organisation.
AART architects were established in 2000 by Anders Strange, Torben Skovbjerg Larsen and Anders Tyrrestrup. Since then, we as a company have grown significantly in size and reach – and five times we have been acknowledged as one of the fast-growing companies in Denmark. Concurrently with our growth, we have expanded to include Thomas Pedersen, Nanna Flintholm, Rasmus Højkjær Larsen and Mads Nygaard as associate partners. In their daily and strategic work, the partner group is supported by key personnel, who are in charge of operations, finance, communications, business development and concept development – all with a focus on creating a competent and communicating organisation.
