When Ludvig Witte is asked why he wanted to set up his own architecture firm, he weighs his words carefully. “I studied architecture in Denmark. When I came back to my native Sweden after graduation, I realised that the architect’s role differs somewhat between the two countries,” he begins. “In Denmark, architects have more influence and more responsibility all the way through a project, from the drawing board to completion of the construction process. In Sweden, the architect is often left out of the project after the initial design phase, resulting in finished buildings that aren’t quite what they were intended to be.”
