In co-creation with customers and citizens, COWI and Arkitema create sustainable communities. Our ambition is to develop solutions that are people-focused and enhance liveability and quality of life.

Through a close partnership between our engineers and architects, we ensure that all elements – from electrical installations to climate adaptation – are gathered in aesthetics designs from day one. We work across national borders and utilize each other’s competencies to jointly create buildable, usable, sustainable, and aesthetic projects that create value for both customers and users. 

Our approach

Arkitema is a Scandinavian based architectural firm with more than 650 dedicated employees working from studios in Denmark, Sweden, and Norway. Arkitema was founded in 1969 and stems from collectivism, and 50 years later our DNA still contains an inherent focus on quality of life and humanity. Consequently, we create architecture for the many and for the common good. We believe that, through strong team spirit, knowledge sharing, and sound cooperation, we can create and develop Scandinavian cities.

We have solid experience in architecture and engineering, deep roots in the Scandinavian building tradition, and a broad international outlook. Our process starts before the design phase and continues long after the project has finished. We familiarise ourselves with the project area; consider the needs of society and the surrounding environment; and maintain an ongoing dialogue with the client, user, and our partners.
