FRIIS & MOLTKE is a modern architecture studio that has been among the leading firms of Danish architects since it was founded. FRIIS & MOLTKE has been the motive force behind a wide range of architectural projects from single family houses and subsidised accommodation to big, exclusive housing units, and from small public institutions to major planning and building projects that include hospitals, prison, stadiums, administration buildings, and institutes of education – always with sympathetic insight into the preconditions for the task and the client's needs, based on holistic thinking and simplicity.
Many of FRIIS & MOLTKE's projects originated in architecture competitions won by the firm. Working on competitions is a source of change, new approaches, and professional development, and ensures the constant development of our competences and views of architecture. The results from the drawing office are created through cooperation – both with our clients and at the studio. FRIIS & MOLTKE is active in Denmark and abroad and the firm is currently engaged in projects in Germany, Ireland, Turkey, and Korea.
FRIIS & MOLTKE was founded in 1954 by Knud Friis and Elmar Moltke. Today, FRIIS & MOLTKE is a limited company with 55 employees who work at studios in Århus, Aalborg, and Køge, and is owned by the five partners: Palle Hurwitz, Niels Erik Thomsen, Mikkel Wienberg, Martin Wienberg, and Mogens Husted Kristensen.
