Anders Barslund is an architecture practice based in Virum, just north of Copenhagen. Their work is characterised by clever definitions of space, visual and spatial connections to the outdoors and a sophisticated palette of colours and materials. Anders Barslund has an impressive portfolio of new buildings, renovations and additions.
The studio is constantly studying and exploring architecture and anthropology. These studies push how they design and think about architecture and their experience of space. Their extensive material library is used as an interactive tool throughout the design process, as they consider the entire impression of the spaces they create, including how different textures will work, particularly with regard to how they feel, smell, sound and how they react to light. During the design process, they work through their ideas using hand sketches; then, when getting further into the process, they develop their projects using the most advanced digital tools for 2D drawing, 3D modelling and rendering.
Anders Barslund, Architect, MAA, founded the studio in 2006. He is a passionate architect with more than 20 years of solid experience in architecture, building techniques and project management. He began his career at the Danish architecture firm 3XN. During his six years there, Anders gained vast experience working on large, complex projects. While working with the bigger Danish studios, Anders built a strong knowledge base of technical building methods. This foundation is crucial to Anders’ practice today, as it allows him to solve complex design and construction problems, which means that the creativity of his designs is not limited by the current conventions in building construction.
