At Alessandro Ripellino Arkitekter, we produce architecture tuned into its context.
The architectural context is always our point of departure. How does a space function for the moment? What can we add? The present and past exist side by side in the built environment. Architecture should support a continuity of history, not distance itself from it. This is at the core of our focus, as each project we realize entails a change in the cityscape and its surroundings.
Our buildings and projects aim to be solid enough to last for a long time. We design buildings with well-developed detailing, with a play on repetition and sequences, and well-weighted proportions. We continuously explore the esthetics of rationalism. We believe in urbanity. We design the architecture of the city.
Modern society faces many challenges, but we believe the built environment can support us in our endeavour to lead sustainable lives. We believe urbanity can solve some of the challenges, and we aim to contribute to a city that is viable in the long run.
