LINK arkitektur is one of the leading architect offices in Scandinavia, in terms of turnover, the number of employees and the number of projects completed annually. As a business model and philosophy, LINK has chosen to let our 14 offices with approximately 350 employees in Norway, Sweden and Denmark create their own culture and specialist fields. There are many opportunities created by having offices geographically close to you. At the same time, all the expertise in our system is permanently available. This means that you as a customer can benefit from the local knowledge of your nearest LINK office, with all the possibilities that this entails: We guide projects through the local bureaucracy in the most effective way possible, we ensure efficient and personal follow-up and we have personnel that are knowledgeable about the surroundings and the local property market. In addition to construction architecture, we also have wide and accessible expertise in planning, landscaping, interiors and the maritime/offshore sector. Due to our structure and the opportunities it provides for cooperation between offices, we always have the capacity to accept both large and small projects in residential and commercial buildings, transport, industry, urban development, public buildings, sports facilities, health care and education/research facilities. We have extensive experience in all of these categories.
LINK arkitektur can provide a creative input throughout Scandinavia. Our latest initiative was to open an office in Copenhagen, which means that we now have a presence in all of the major cities and regions in Norway, Sweden and Denmark.
