About us

We create framework for people’s lives

Årstiderne Arkitekter is a leading Scandinavian architecture firm with broad experience in architecture, design and construction. We are a full-service architecture firm founded in 1985 with 250 employees working from offices in Copenhagen, Silkeborg, Aarhus, Herning and Nesbyen in Norway.

In 2018 Årstiderne Arkitekter became part of Sweco – Europe’s leading architecture and engineering consultancy with 15.000 employees and 1.300 architects.

We are deeply rooted in the Scandinavian architectural tradition.  With a focus on materials, light, people and context we strive to create social, economic and environmental value for developers, users and communities. Our architecture is relevant, sustainable and knowledge-based, and founded on functionality, aesthetics and social, environmental and economic responsibility.

It takes people to build for people
We are founded on the idea that life is more important than monuments, and that architects should always stand behind the people we build for.

We create architecture that always puts the user and the human being first. We create a framework for healthy cities, for the good living, for working life and for enriching experiences in the free time. In short: We create a framework for people’s lives.

As designers and consultants, we have in-depth expertise and broad experience in ten segments: Housing, Public Housing, Offices, Retail, Learning & Leisure, Health, Transformation & Renovation, Space Planning & Interior Design, Urban Planning and Landscape Architecture.

In every project, we put together the best team drawing on special expertise from across our offices, segments and inhouse specialists within BIM and ICT, developer consulting, user involvement and sustainability.

Together we contribute with our expertise throughout the entire lifetime of the building.
