According to this Oslo architecture practice:
The architecture practice have an unstoppable curiosity for people and society and translate this into forward thinking and vibrant architecture. Through interacting with their clients and within the community framework, they will deliver architecture with empathy at a human scale.
Their architecture contributes to a harmonious play between people, landscape and the urban environment.
They challenge the conventional ideas in the building industry, by being innovative through material selection and detailing, yet rational in implementation, economical in operation and responsible towards community engagement, clients and contractors.
This architecture practice’s staffing level has remained at a stable 40 – 70 employees during the last 10 – 15 years due to a steady rate of incoming commissions. The office benefits from many long-standing clients and recurring commissions, however they also acquire new projects as a result of successful participation in both open and invited competitions.
Employees work in teams from 2 – 15 people depending on the size and nature of the project. Each project is designed simultaneously from the inside and the outside.
