“We’ve specialised in architectural tailoring in different forms and often work with demanding projects on complicated sites. We are inspired by and adapt our project ideas to the client, nature and topography. For instance, we’re good at building without using explosives or taking down trees,” says Carl-Viggo Hølmebakk, architect and general manager of the Norwegian architecture firm carrying his name. Hølmebakk established his own Oslo office in 1992, after studying and teaching architecture at the Oslo School of Architecture and Design (AHO).
