Research and Development

Our curiosity makes us continuously evaluate and challenge our world. Since the creation of White Arkitekter in 1951, we have challenged the status quo through our in-house research and development to create sustainable architecture – and a better society for all.

Explorative culture since 1951

Research and development has been a fundamental part of our working culture since the practice was established in 1951. Knowledge and curiosity remain as our fundamental business assets. Our explorative culture is reflected in our investment; ten percent of our annual turnover is dedicated to R&D. Our employee ownership structure allows us to support R&D activities on a broad basis, from bottom-up initiatives in our assignments, to practice-based research in collaboration with academia. White Research Lab focuses on three key themes: equitable architecture, resource efficiency and informed design.
