Created by the merger of two wellestablished firms ten years ago, RUM has a long history of creating high-quality architecture through an open and thorough planning process. Partner Anders Johansen explains. “We work a lot with aesthetics and beautiful buildings – we just believe that it’s something that arises from the combination of other core elements. Architecture is about structures that are suited to the people using them; it’s about flexibility and technical quality and ensuring that the structures will last. And, it’s about optimising the value for the developer through a balance of all those things.” Throughout the years, RUM has applied these principles in numerous projects within the sectors of education and culture, health, residential and workplace.
