the architect office vandkunsten a/s

The architect office: Tegnestuen Vandkunsten a/s was established in 1970.

The first major commision was won in 1971 - a first prize in a competition on the future of housing in Denmark.

The quality of housing - low-cost and social housing in particular - remains the foremost concern at the office, but our work covers all aspects of the profession with projects completed in Denmark, Scandinavia and Europe.

Besides outlining, planning and project engineering we do programming and trade supervision, construction management as well as lead consultancy service.

Vandkunsten’s professional ambitions are high and our position in the construction industry is earned through 30 years, where we have been able to maintain a professional commitment and continuously refine our visions regarding planning and building. Vandkunsten wish to attain and expand its position as a social and environmental engaged business, which is reflected in its activities. We can’t help interfering and challenging the debate about the terms of building and planning.

Company culture:

Through almost 40 years Vandkunsten has challenged the routines of the construction process and continuously tried to develop construction towards a social and sustainable goal.

Our organisation is flat with a high degree of responsibility trusted within the employees.

Vandkunsten strive to maintain an open work related criticism and the possibility for collegial discussion about the professional goal. Which also calls for a curiosity and critical decision-making regarding the cultural habits related to the design and use of a building.

Our company culture is based on hard work at the drawing board combined with an informal, critical dialog with the users, clients, consulting partners, contractors and – not to forget – ourselves. Learn more about the result of this practice at:
