White Arkitekter is one of Scandinavia’s leading architectural practices. We work with sustainable architecture, urban design, landscape architecture and interior design for current and future generations. Our mission is to enable sustainable life through the art of architecture. Our vision is that by 2030 all our architecture will be climate neutral, through design excellence.
We work with sustainable architecture, design and urban development in an international context. We need to act responsibly, as our work affects the lives of many both present and future generations. We create spaces for people to thrive and grow in harmony with the ecosystem that we inhabit. We act responsibly by operating within the sustainable limits of our planet when we design healthy living environments that inspire and engage.
Our curiosity is reflected in the way we work. We believe that the search for new knowledge will strengthen our offer for the future. Therefore, we continuously invest in research and development. Through design, creativity and a humanistic approach, we look to solve great challenges. We believe that architecture is shaped by the unique qualities of its context. This makes us radical contextualists.
We are an employee-owned company, and we value involvement and participation. We respect the equality of every individual, and we believe everyone has the right to a sustainable life. This is the foundation of our architecture and our culture. Our projects evolve in collaboration with our clients, users, partners, colleagues and other stakeholders.
By being good listeners, understanding varying perspectives and being devoted to collaboration, we create lasting value.
