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.
