“We are conscious of creating structures built to last past the fleeting trends that dominate our industry,” says Håvard B Olsen, architect at Vårdal Arkitekter. The firm puts significant prestige into every project they undertake, which has proved to be an incredibly efficient marketing strategy. “Some of our customers return ten or 15 years after our first completed project, and are looking to hire us again,” says Olsen. Vårdal Arkitekter has been featured in the respected design magazine Wallpaper and received praise and accolades for their “skilful integration of indoors and outdoors” when constructing a family home in Tønsberg, Norway.
