Our architecture

The evidence is in our schools, hospitals and airports in our everyday lives – buildings where people, life situations, function and design form a perfect synthesis. Vilhelm Lauritzen Architects has been creating people-centric architecture for 100 years.

Have you ever thought about how you immediately feel like you’re home again as soon as your feet touch the wooden floor in Copenhagen Airport after a long trip? Or about the positive effect the carefully designed interior of VEGA has on your concert experience? How nature does you good when you’re sick, or how sensory-oriented learning environments help you learn better because they encourage you to remember with your whole body?

Architecture is the gateway that either opens the world up to you or closes in around you. Join Vilhelm Lauritzen Arkitekter on a journey through our lives and our architecture, with a sharp focus on function, art and design. Over 100 years, a quiet struggle within Danish architecture has shaped the framework for life in Denmark and made our everyday lives easier, more beautiful and more magical based on the vision that good architecture should be for everyone – not just for a privileged few.

Take a behind-the-scenes look at some of Denmark’s most iconic buildings, from Copenhagen Airport, DR Byen and VEGA’s concert halls to brand new projects like Nyt Hospital Nordsjælland (New Northern Zealand Hospital), Nordø and LIFE. Explore the large interactive installations and get a sense of how it feels when an architect designs with people in mind. See how technology reveals the logics behind the architecture, while stimulating installations let you experience captivating concerts and the healing powers of nature. We invite you to feel architecture with all your senses and gain a better understanding of its tools.
