Our Services

White Arkitekter is one of Scandinavia’s leading architectural practices. We offer a wide range of services within White and in all our areas of expertise. Here are some examples of the areas we operate in when creating sustainable architecture, design and urban development for an international context.

  • Enabling Sustainable Life through the Art of Architecture

    We work with sustainable architecture, urban design, landscape architecture and interior design for current and future generations.

    Our mission is to enable sustainable life through the art of architecture. Our vision is that by 2030 all our architecture will be climate neutral, through design excellence.

  • Design & Data – the Key for a Sustainable Society

    We are driving the transition towards sustainable built environments and lives through digitalisation, design and data. Our digitalisation services help community builders to achieve sustainability in projects and overall business.

  • Sustainable Environments that promote Wellbeing

    To us, sustainability is all about creating environments that promote wellbeing within available resources. For us, it all begins with whom: that is our point of departure when we design and when we illuminate meetings, conversations or moments, when we create interiors that open up, arouse, energise and make people want to return to them – today and tomorrow.

  • Helping Cities develop Eco-friendly

    We have dedicated decades to a landscape architecture which makes big cities people-friendly, small cities attractive, forgotten places worth discovering again and nature reserves accessible. Our ambition is to give people green living spaces in densified areas, to inspire movement and well-being, to convey a sense of harmony and to help cities develop in an eco-friendly way.

  • A Sustainable Life by the Power of Light

    We know that light has a transcendent ability to create pleasant. functional and sustainable living environments that touch lives. We keep sight of the human aspect in everything we do and our interdisciplinary approach ensures that projects achieve their full potential. As lighting designers, architects and sustainability specialists with a wealth of practical and research experience, we contribute to driving development.

  • Delivering Quality from Concept to Completion

    As developing the built environment becomes increasingly complex, good project management requires an understanding of entrepreneur and builder, city and citizens and that architecture is a combination of vision and detail. Our project managers are trusted client advisors who understand the value of sustainable design, as well as our client’s business needs; from concept to completion.

  • Together – for a Sustainable Life

    White has a long history of driving sustainability issues in the projects we participate in. Our strength lies in our holistic view of the planning and building process and, whether your concerns are with the environment, climate impact, corporate social responsibility or financial values, we can manage sustainability issues through establishing your vision, planning, project design and scheduling and on to construction and the management of your asset.

  • Rethink, Reuse, Transform!

    Transformation is so much more than simply changing form – it is about developing instead of replacing, imbuing existing structures and materials with renewed value. Society at large – and not least the construction sector – is tasked with the feat of achieving yet even more with the earth’s ever fewer resources. We need to rethink; to look towards value-creating spaces and develop what we have. Rethink, Reuse, Transform!

  • Democratic Environments which hold Differences and Diversity

    In the face of an increasingly urbanised world and ever greater climate challenges, the city must give space to many while simultaneously managing to bring us together. Democratic urban design is about creating inclusive environments with few barriers while simultaneously preserving the unique character of a space.

Architecture for a Sustainable Life • Annual and Sustainability Report 2022

The drive towards a sustainable transition shows the way for a weaker growth in the construction and real estate industry in 2022. The EU’s “Green Deal” highlights architecture and design as pivotal success factors for sustainable development. For White, sustainability means creating architecture that is carbon neutral, circular, and nature-based, while also contributing to enhancing health and social values.
