Copenhagen – Studio Awards Visit


We’ve just returned from a studio trip to the environmentally conscious city of Copenhagen. Not only a cycling paradise but birthplace of New Nordic cuisine and of course Danish Modern design.

Why Copenhagen…

In the early part of this year the studio was shortlisted in a high profile competition for a hillside housing development on the Faroe Islands.

We were proud to be the only UK architecture practice among the 23 multidisciplinary teams which were shortlisted from more than 140 submissions to the programme from around the world.

We were delighted to reach the very last part of the Nordic Built Cities Challenge following an invitation to attend the grand Nordic Finale in Copenhagen. Hence our visit.
