In 2012, four eager architects set up the Trondheim-based architecture firm Arkitekturfabrikken, directly translating
as ‘the architecture factory’. Their ambition was simple: to always take on projects that would challenge them. “We
are incredibly humbled by the landscape and history surrounding each project, which we aim to incorporate into the buildings while also trying to foresee the future and how to best meet the time to come. Thus every single project is, and has to be, approached in different ways,” says partner Jens Bjørnstad.
