We are ADEPT

ADEPT is a Copenhagen and Hamburg based architecture community founded in 2006. We believe in ‘place before building’ because the ideal city is a resilient organism born from the sustainable synergies between people, functions and places.

Working across scales and across the world, we integrate the latest research in sustainability in our designs to customize solutions to the unique content of each project. We design from a circular perspective and prioritize design for disassembly, CO2 reduction, climate adaption and urban biodiversity.

Our designs grow from a careful reading of local conditions to creating places that contribute to their context. We are more concerned with users, location and sustainability than with classical terms of aesthetics. Our aim is to design anti-iconic cities and buildings that leave room for the un-programmed to evolve with its users. The most important resource in our cities and buildings are the people that inhabit them. We seek to activate that resource through social and sustainable initiatives encouraging positive interaction and community. Through an iterative process, we investigate all possible aspects of a project, while slowly condensing our ideas into a single concept. We explore unknown territories to bring back innovative solutions.

ADEPT employs approximately 50 dedicated architects, urban planners, engineers and landscape architects. We focus our work in the Nordic countries and Germany, but work all over Europe, in Asia and in the Middle East.
