The most essential component in Nordic architecture is its unique natural surroundings, according to Ola Spangen. He is the head of the Norwegian architecture firm ASAS Arkitektur, a business focusing on honest materials, clear structures and a green mindset as well as a sincere wish to excite. After 35 years in the field, ASAS Arkitektur has three offices scattered across Norway and over 800 past projects to draw experience from. There is no doubt about the expertise and capability that rests within the team of 12 architects who work at the firm. As CEO, Ola Spangen appreciates that every single one of his employees contributes something different to the team.
