The architects at Ahlqvist & Almqvist always aim to exceed expectations and add something special to their projects. One example is the residential neighbourhood of Malmudden in Luleå, where future tenants will be able to enjoy a communal sauna and grow vegetables in a shared greenhouse. The firm turns 30 this year, but they have been too busy to celebrate. The Stockholm-based architecture office was founded by Bengt Ahlqvist and opened in 1985. Britt Almqvist, now CEO and principal owner, first came on board as an employee that same year. 30 years later the office is still going strong, but they have not celebrated their anniversary yet.
