70 years of Community Involvement and Collaboration
White Arkitekter was founded in 1951 in Gothenburg by Sidney White with the aim to improve society through architecture. His legacy lives on in our ambition to contribute towards a more sustainable world. The ideals of collective thinking and employee ownership are as strong as ever and today we are one of Scandinavia’s leading architectural practices with almost 800 employees and presence in Sweden, Norway, the United Kingdom, Germany, Canada and East Africa. We are collectively owned by 494 staff members, 117 of whom are partners; working together to benefit society as a whole.
We value involvement and participation and respect the equality of every individual. Everyone has the right to a sustainable life. This is the foundation of our architecture and our culture. Our projects evolve in collaboration with our clients, users, partners, colleagues and other stakeholders.
By being good listeners, understanding different points of view and being devoted to collaboration, we create lasting value.
