We take an innovative approach to architecture by combining science and art with a deep understanding of people and environment. Our green innovation unit, GXN, focuses on developing sustainable building materials, technologies and practices. The result of our expertise is iconic and humane architecture featuring cutting-edge green solutions and technologies.
In 3XN we believe that Architecture shapes behaviour. Therefore we try to create places where people can interact and communicate. Buildings, like people, are more than just the sum of their many parts, and we believe that it is possible to achieve a synthesis of design, function and environment.
We focus on cultural buildings, corporate headquarters and educational institutions. Amsterdam Music Hall, The Museum of Liverpool and Ørestad College in Copenhagen are some of the well-known buildings of 3XN. However we have also received several honors and distinctions for iconic projects like Middelfart Savings Bank and Horten Law Headquarters, which both feature innovative ways of achieving sustainable architecture through an exploration of both form and technology.
Recently, we have released our new book ‘Building a Circular Future’, which explores how the industry can implement a circular building practice, by eleminating waste and optimizing the reuse of building materials. The book is available open source at buildingacircularfuture.com
3XN’s design for Swedbank is an innovative interpretation of the core values of the organization – openness, simplicity and care for staff and the environment – all materialized in a modern office space with emphasis on transparency, Scandinavian simplicity and a dynamic social environment. Thus the architecture is based directly on the organization’s profile as […]
An Icon for Mumbai On the junction between busy Bhau Tatoba Toraskar Marg and New Link Road, two clusters of slender towers rise upwards towards the sky over Mumbai. The unique clusters with their distinctive facades of softly shaped sun visors and green vertical gardens are destined to be the new iconic landmark in Andheri and […]
Globally, more natural resources are consumed than what is sustainable for our finite planet. According to the United Nations, the extraction and processing of natural resources are responsible for around half of all global CO2emissions and over 90 per cent of global biodiversity loss. It is evident that we have a shared challenge in decoupling growth in resource use from population and income growth. A transition to a circular economy will enable this.
