We are an architectural office specialized in the fields of climate adapted landscapes, hybrid buildings and sustainable urban planning. We call our approach ‘humane responses to man-made problems’.
We explore the territory between building and landscape and between the natural and the manmade. This optimistic yet challenging approach leads to innovative proposals for new building typologies and landscapes, that are developed with a deep understanding of the nature and the ecosystem, as well as the pragmatics of our cities, buildings, and profession.
In THE BLUE RAMPARTS, we have worked with the area Damsterdiepzone in Groningen – an area that accommodates industry, housing, and businesses. In our vision we explore how nature-based solutions can solve Damsterdiepzone’s challenges: fragmentation between the different uses, poor infrastructural connections, floods, and hard surfaces, which lead to urban heat islands.
‘New Angle’ shows how the SDG’s can be translated into practice in the construction industry. It is estimated that the project represents a CO2 saving of 30-50%. We’ve created a housing type that tells a good story at times where we need an accelerated green transition in the industry. The building handles noise and daylight […]
The future neighbourhood – Lynetteholm – will be a vital part of the climate- and flood protection of Copenhagen and create space for more than 35.000 new inhabitants as well as new infrastructure.

Good water management can make cities healthier places to live, resilient towards climate change and more sustainable overall. Without proper sanitation, sewerage and clean water supply, there is no liveable city. This white paper features lessons learned from different Danish stakeholders within urban water management. It is meant to serve as a tool for inspiration for creating innovative water solutions, which contribute to smarter and more liveable cities.
