Over almost three decades Lundhagem has been driven by a consistent approach inspired by the Norwegian design tradition of simplicity, minimalism and functionality. All projects are informed by a sensitive approach to surrounding landscape and a dynamic dialogue between nature and the built environment. The work of Lundhagem focuses on critical detailing and is economic of means both poetically and practically.
Founded in 1990 by Svein Lund and Einar Hagem, Lundhagem today consists of over 60 employees and is managed by six Partners; Svein Lund, Einar Hagem, Mette Røsbekk, Per Suul, Kristine Strøm-Gundersen and Kaia Hellstrøm Krüger.
Whether for a small cabin or an urban master plan, Lundhagem’s work reflects a belief in combining the latest advances in technology and sustainability, whilst making use of local materials and handcraft traditions.
Lundhagem's wide ranging portfolio includes holiday homes, private villas and large scale residential and housing projects, office and commercial developments, notable cultural and educational projects, hotels and leisure complexes and urban masterplans.
As a multidisciplinary practice, Lundhagem has undertaken numerous collaborative projects with architectural, design and engineering partners. It is passionately committed to the collaborative aspect of creating architecture and fundamentally believes that teamwork and continuous dialogue with clients, partners and end-users are essential to delivering excellence in architecture.
The practice has completed over 100 built projects for which it has won numerous competitions and received a number of awards for design excellence.
