ADEPT is based in Copenhagen and works within the fields of architecture and urbanism. Partners Martin Laursen, Martin Krogh and Anders Lonka founded the office in 2006. Within recent years, ADEPT has won numerous national and international competitions and awards and continuously complete the won projects. In 2013, 2014 and 2016 ADEPT has received the Gazelle Award, awarded by Denmark’s leading business paper to the most rapidly growing businesses in Denmark.

ADEPT has a specific focus on the human scale in our cities and buildings to create a close relationship between architecture and urbanism – between the built and non-built environment.

By strengthening the meeting between the qualities in both the building and its close surroundings, we uncover the potential to create a new relationship between the public and the private space, to create attractive city environments that makes everyday life better for everyone.

Based on client input and eventual user involvement, we develop a number of possible solution scenarios. The development of possible solutions lead the process towards one single and significant main idea that is explored as the final proposal – a sustainable and innovative architectural solution.

ADEPTs projects spans widely within the field of architecture and planning: from the active and engaging community building to the sustainable housing project, from the intimate public space to the strategic master plan.

Every project is treated on its own terms to design from the core of the individual challenges born from the projects context, history and functions.

Each main idea is shaped as a clear and simple architectural concept focusing on creating spatial experience and more everyday value for its users – from the overall architectural expression to the beautiful details.
