“One of the things I like the most about current Danish architecture is the range and freedom of expression in buildings that people have come to expect,” Sørensen notes. “That works really well with our principle that the buildings we work on shouldn’t primarily express a particular ‘look’ of our office. Instead, its architectural identity should be centred on the environment, people and function it’ll serve. Each building should therefore be unique.” This view seems to work: buildings by ZENI Architects have won and been nominated for several architecture prizes both locally and internationally – yet the company only consists of ten employees.
