Things are looking up. Architectural expertise is in great demand: order books are more than filled and there is an increasing interest in architecture and design in Sweden today. Architecture firms have a unique opportunity to grow and contribute to good architecture that will stand the test of time. Architecture firms operating at full capacity also bring new challenges. A shortage of skilled personnel is clearly one. We are delighted that Swedish offices are being enriched by architects from other countries, architects not only broadening know-how but also bringing new perspectives and sometimes different expertise. This brings fantastic opportunities to develop new services where associated skillsets can deliver added value to projects.
