…as we design the future

Anchored in a strong culture from 1922, we create high-quality architecture in all types of projects - from wooden housing and transformation of an old aquarium to mega-projects such as the new super hospital in North Zealand and the Copenhagen Airport expansion.

For more than a hundred years, we have designed for the future based on the classic modern notion that shape should be an imprint of behavior. If you can see yourself be part of a team where the aim is to create design that lasts for centuries and is versatile enough to adapt to the shifting needs and uses of each generation – we might be the perfect match.

Join a small community that wants to benefit a greater one

We are located in Copenhagen's Nordhavn in an old, restored warehouse and with a beautiful sea view, from all sides and angles. A setting that inspires us in our daily work, where we remain committed to the vision that architecture should always focus on people and meaning - never the architect. Every day we work to benefit a larger community and create long-lasting design and architecture that contributes to our daily quality of life.

In addition to the city's most beautiful views and 150 talented colleagues, you will be part of a culture built on decency, respect and a high level of professional pride. We are fathered by one of the founders of Danish modernism and rounded by a history that includes iconic Danish buildings, such as the Radio house, Copenhagen Airport, Krøyers Plads, Illum and DR Byen. And we work with a number of different areas, which include life science, housing, office, health, infrastructure, etc.

Vilhelm Lauritzen, 1964

“I see a tendency to reduce architecture to be an aim in itself, thus it becomes meaningsless”

What we offer

Working for us you will find yourself in a work environment, where everybody backs each other and your ideas and commitment are highly valued. We have an informal tone and a flat organisational structure where good ideas are never far from realisation.

We will go above and beyond to match our needs as a company with your wishes and dreams and offer a high level of continued education and competency development, as well as we run several development projects within blockchain, A.I., parametric design and sustainability – all initiated and driven by colleagues that want to develop the projects, themselves and us.

In addition, you will be able to participate in social and professional events, such as international study trips, Friday bars, sports events etc.
