AART architects is an award-winning practice with strong Scandinavian roots. AART architects create the space for a good life, that’s the practice’s primary goal as architects. This recipe, adds to a Scandinavian focus and social responsibility, which has turned out to be a great success for the Danish practice.

AART architects was founded 15 years ago and is today a well-established Scandinavian brand with offices in Aarhus, Copenhagen and Oslo, with a team of 70 employees.

For AART architects, architecture is not only about comprehending buildings and urban spaces, but also about people and a high standard of living. The practice thus regards architecture in the larger context, as a desire to create sustainable environments and for society as a whole.

This design approach has resulted in a broad spectrum of internationally acclaimed projects – one of the latest is the impressive Waterfront development in Stavanger, which has been praised as one of the largest wooden residential developments in Europe.

AART architects has also designed the award-winning Inspiria Science Center in Graalum, which has been honoured as one of the most sustainable buildings in Europe, as well as the award-winning Culture Yard in Helsingør, which transforms the city’s former shipbuilding yard into a multi-faceted cultural centre.

The broad spectrum of projects AART architects is involved in led us to establishing our own research department in 2011 with the aim of developing architecture, based on a systematic work with knowledge, innovation and cross-disciplinary cooperation.

“We created this creative room where we gather, collect and foster knowledge based on the modern way of life and the development in the building industry – because we strive to position architecture as a key contributor in the effort to meet the challenges our clients and society in general face,” says Anders Tyrrestrup, co-founding partner at AART architects.
