“LINK will still be a Scandinavian company and brand name focusing on architecture, landscape architecture, interior architecture, planning and urbanism.
As one of Scandinavia's largest architect company with 14 offices in Norway, Sweden and Denmark, we have a unique geographical spread and implementation force that will be further developed in the years ahead.
LINK architecture now consists of 350 employees from over 20 nations and it is they who create all the beautiful buildings, spaces, parks, and great rooms that we are so proud of!
The company is now moving into an exciting period in which strategies for the group until 2020 will be planned. We will look into the "glass ball" and lay the future foundation for architect's office.
I think the journey ahead will be just as adventurous as it has been until today! "
The company has, since the first merger in 2000 between architects “Lysaker Mølle” ,“Maurseth” and “Halleraker”, been through an adventurous journey, and has achieved a solid position as one of the leading architect offices in Scandinavia.
The four founders of LINK continues in the same roles they hold today.
“Focus on employees, work environment, architecture and quality has been crucial for the company's development. About 50% of the company’s assignments are gained from their successful participation in architectural competitions. This creativity we will take care of and develop further,“ concludes Mr Maurseth.
