The architectural dialogue

 

Our methodology and working culture is determined by a continuous search for new low energy optimizing solutions. When choosing materials and advising a client on interior design, but also when acquiring new interior for the office. We have gained a huge amount of knowledge and experience, giving us a unique position when designing sustainable buildings. We have developed a number of sustainable, low-energy projects with very ambitious environmental agendas. In our approach to designing new buildings, the design concept is closely linked with the inclusion of energy optimizing choices, collaborating with experts in the fields of sustainable engineering and energy optimizing.

 

Good architecture makes a difference architects with intention, empathy and thoroughness makes buildings that actively can change people's lives.

Architecture is one of the fundamental pillars of our society. Worldwide, buildings account for 40% of CO2 emissions, through responsible architecture we can help to provide a higher life quality. We aim to create buildings built from environmentally sound materials, and buildings that contribute to a sustainable and responsible society.
