FRIIS & MOLTKE is a modern architects practice that has been one of the leading firms of Danish architects ever since it was founded in 1954.

FRIIS & MOLTKE has been the driving force behind a wide range of architectural projects: from single-family houses and subsidised housing to big, exclusive standalone units and apartment blocks, from small public institutions to major planning and building projects that include hospitals, prisons, stadiums, administration buildings, cultural centres and institutes of education. FRIIS & MOLTKE always commits to its projects with creative enthusiasm, sympathetic insight into the project parameters and consideration for the client’s needs, based on holistic thinking and simplicity.

Many of FRIIS & MOLTKE’s projects are the result of architecture competitions won by the practice. Working on competitions is a source of change, new approaches and professional development and ensures the continuous development of our qualifications and of the way we view architecture. The projects taken on by our architects practice are always completed through close and constructive cooperation and teamwork between us, our business partners and our clients. FRIIS & MOLTKE is active in Denmark and abroad, and the practice is currently working on projects in Germany, Ireland, Turkey, the Philippines, Scotland and England.

FRIIS & MOLTKE was founded in 1954 by Knud Friis and Elmar Moltke and today has employees working in practices in Aarhus, Aalborg and Copenhagen.

FRIIS & MOLTKE is owned and managed by eight partners: Palle Hurwitz, Mikkel Wienberg, Mikkel Bahr, Mogens Husted Kristensen, Jens Ole Bahr, Thomas Hjortlund Svendsen, Thomas Ruus Christensen and Anders Christian Bregnballe..







The goal of DANISH™ is to promote Danish architecture and design in a broad perspective, and demonstrate all the potentials in these fields.
