After several years in big firms working on large projects, Lars J Berge made the decision to go solo ten years ago. Since then, LJB Architecture and Landscape has expanded from a laptop on the kitchen table to an office with three architects in the centre of Bergen. He believes that landscaping and architecture should go hand in hand as it will improve the outcome. Rather than following the current architectural trends, Lars J Berge values a more traditional style, inspired by old farm buildings and locally sourced material.
