ADEPT is based in Copenhagen and has a studio in Hamburg, both creatively lead by the partners Anders Lonka, Martin Krogh, Martin Laursen and associate partner Simon Poulsen.
We design architecture, public space and large-scale urban plans with a cross-disciplinary team of architects, landscape architects, engineers and urban planners. Engaging ourselves in a wide range of architectural disciplines have become our professional strength.
We believe in generosity as the primary tool of creation and innovation. Generous buildings, public spaces, landscapes and urban plans can change the world. Not as singular iconic gestures but as a collective approach to creating sustainable environments.
We believe that generosity manifests itself in architecture that moves beyond solving specific needs – our aim is to create spaces that offers new value to users and surroundings.
We see architecture as an iterative process, developing designs through extensive studies of different scenarios that slowly condensates into one strong idea. Different situations fosters different solutions. We believe that generosity appears in a careful dialogue with both specific users and the complex surroundings in which we work. Our projects do not inscribe themselves in a specific style but rather into an including and innovative mindset.
ADEPTs work and approach have been awarded on numerous occasions. We are proud and thankful for all of them.
