Norm Architects was founded in 2008. We work in the fields of industrial design, residential architecture, commercial interiors, photography and art direction.

Much like human well-being, the essence of Norm Architects’ work is found in balance—between richness and restraint, between order and complexity. Each project—whether architecture, interiors, design or creative direction—is imbued with the same intrinsic quality: a simplicity that carries bigger ideas. Guided by the body and mind rather than by trends or technology, our projects explore ideas that not only look good but that also feel good: Architecture becomes thoughtful, minimalism acquires softness and visual matter assumes haptic qualities. Our work is sharp and crisp and exudes, tacitly, our focus on quality, details and durability.

Situated in one of the oldest streets of Copenhagen, Denmark, we respect our context and build on the traditions of Scandinavian design—of timeless aesthetics, natural materials and upholding Modernist principles of restraint and refinement. Through exploring what it is that heightens the human senses regardless of personal preference, our projects strip spaces, objects, ideas and images back to their simplest form. Our expertise lies in finding the balance—when there’s nothing more to either add or take away.

Trained at Aarhus School of Architecture, he has developed his core values within architecture and design, and has later applied these in his work for multiple companies and design firms in Copenhagen. As a furniture designer with an architectural background he is able to see the bigger picture and create furniture pieces as everyday objects rather than statement pieces.
