Going to Berlin soon? Then get inspired by KHR's architectural study tour with an intensive 3-day architecture programme through the German capital.
Berlin's history has given it a diverse architectural expression. The city is 9 times larger than Paris, and while districts like Mitte and Prenzlauer Berg have already undergone a huge transformation since the fall of the Wall, gentrification in peripheral areas like Wedding is still in its early stages. In other words, there's plenty of inspiration and perspective to be had if you're interested in architecture and urban development.
Thank you to all our clients, partners and colleagues who came to celebrate our 75th anniversary last Friday, making it the day and evening we had hoped for. Scroll down to see photos from the day.
Professor, Architect MAA
The Danish pavilion put architect Jan Søndergaard on the map as one of the great Danish architects. To this day, the pavilion stands as a major work in the history of KHR and Danish architecture.
The inauguration of Bang & Olufsen's headquarters served as one large showroom for Bang & Olufsen's culture and production. It has been said of the entrance to the building that it is like walking into a huge B&O plant. Designed by Jan Søndergaard, who is known for his architecture that becomes like art in the landscape, the building is located near B&O's home town of Struer, overlooking picturesque fields of grazing sheep. The interior is experienced in relation to the surrounding landscape with reflections from the sky light in a physical juxtaposition of spaces that visually connect inside and outside.
KHR Architecture has welcomed two new profiles to its ownership circle as Professor Jan Søndergaard steps down as owner and partner.
KHR has a long history of work in innovation and research in architecture and building arts. This is formalized with the establishment of Atelier-KHR, which is led by partner Professor Jan Søndergaard in collaboration with newly hired Kjell Yngve Petersen.
KHR has elected a new board consisting of chairman Lasse Bolander and board members Teis Bruun and Jens-Erik Corvinius.
