JJW Arkitekter work within the field of “everyday architecture” – the buildings and places we all go through and use every day. With attention to detail, user needs and beauty we believe that the most ordinary places can become extraordinary. We work with education, housing, healthcare and business and our goal is to design long-lasting buildings, that doesn’t burden future generations. We believe that the means to fulfill this goal is to work dedicated and systematic with sustainability.
Not just because this is an environmental necessity, but because we truly believe this is a way to design better projects that will improve the daily life of the users, develop the local community and create economic value to the owners. Our approach to sustainability is holistic and puts focus on both environmental, economic and social sustainability.
