First-class design combines functionality and aesthetics. This applies to both overall building expression and details. We work innovatively with the building identity through tangible, strategic design solutions – from space planning to signage.
Decor, interior, and graphic design interweave with architecture, enhancing the experience of the building as a whole. By incorporating workflows, indoor climate, and organizational culture into the design, we tailor the physical setting to support the organization’s values and needs.
Our team of architects, industrial and graphic designers guides projects from the preliminary phases to production, execution, and follow-up. The team’s expertise ranges from integrated workplace and building design – where buildings are designed from the inside out – to strategic counseling, process management, and interior design, including fixtures and wayfinding.
In decorating and planning the jewelry company Pandora’s headquarters in Copenhagen, our ambition has been to create an elegant, modern, and professional environment that comes to life through its furnishings, color palette, and flow.
The concept design draws inspiration from Pandora’s own product line – focusing on traditional, high-quality craftsmanship – and from the moments and processes shared by staff and management, working within the scope of Pandora’s corporate identity and values.
The design creates a natural flow through the building, while at the same time establishing the required division between the various functions. Areas for activity and socializing are placed in the center of the building, while workspaces are placed along the facade to provide them with ample daylight and a quiet atmosphere. Conference rooms and more informal meeting areas serve as natural transition zones between the quiet offices and the buzzing social areas.
Based on a thorough building analysis and user involvement process, we offer preliminary, strategic counseling on size requirements, utilization of square meters, workflows, etc. This contributes to securing an interior and graphic design which build on the narrative and corporate identity of the organization and brand.
Space planning is in fact relevant for all types of buildings, including research, educational, and cultural buildings in addition to office spaces. By identifying and integrating user needs, patterns, and desired changes, we create state-of-the-art work environments based on the latest advancements in space planning.
Interior design delves deeper than overall space planning and points to specific design solutions. Using colors, lighting, graphic design, materials, product design, and furnishings, we create a physical manifestation of the core narrative and values represented by the institution or brand.
We design fixtures and furnishings of all types and sizes for educational institutions, office environments, cultural venues, etc. – from reception desks to lamps and doorknobs. We provide this service for new buildings designed by Henning Larsen as well as for existing buildings designed by other architects.
We develop concepts and graphic designs for spaces and buildings, including signage, information and exhibition graphics, graphics for glass walls, stairways, corridors, etc. Our concepts relate to the architecture, design, and function of the building as well as to the history brought in by its users. The implementation of a graphic concept offers the opportunity to refine and strengthen the identity that you wish to unfold in a building.
Frederiksbjerg School is a school designed for movement. All day long, the children actively navigate the school’s climbing stairs, playgrounds, and extensive outdoor areas. Movement leads to better learning. The school manifests this narrative through its graphic identity. As with the rest of the school, its graphic concept is rooted in the keywords: openness, movement, diversity, and learning. The design is playful, dynamic, and malleable.
The graphic concept comes to life in the school’s signage, glass walls, doors, and pillars. The classroom walls are decorated with literary quotes and scientific laws. The words have been carefully selected and adapted to the individual subject and grade level. Subsequently, the graphic concept has also been implemented into the school’s letterhead and into a book about the school.
