Seven has become thirteen in a new group of associates at Vilhelm Lauritzen Architects, which has experienced high growth over a number of years.
The decision to welcome new associates in a new structure at Vilhelm Lauritzen Architects is an extension of the company’s expansion with an international investor in the spring who will boost the company’s growth journey as an independent consultant.
“With the new associates, we ensure that there are managerial resources to lift our ambitious strategy for new development areas. This applies, among other things, to sustainability and digitalisation, just as we are working to expand internationally,” says Gyrithe Saltorp, CEO at Vilhelm Lauritzen Architects.
Vilhelm Lauritzen Architects is one of Denmark’s largest architectural firms and is, among other things, known for projects such as Copenhagen Airport, DR City, Krøyers Plads and New North Zealand Hospital as well as a number of sustainable projects. The company collaborates with international architects such as Swiss Herzog & de Meuron, American Steven Holl and Japanese Kengo Kuma & Associates.
“The new associates are six talented and very different profiles that together can help us meet our goals of continued growth. At the same time, they also serve as the next generation of banner bearers for our almost 100-year-old vision of delivering high-quality functional architecture on a foundation of orderliness, independence and community,” says Gyrithe Saltorp.
Vilhelm Lauritzen Architects’ group of associates now consists of Anne Møller Sørensen, Christian Egedius Bendtsen, Daniel Illum-Davis, Gyrithe Saltorp (CEO), Jakob Meyling, Jeppe Dueholm, Lasse Herbo Madsen, Malte Rosenquist, Michael Schytt Poulsen, Simon Natanael Svensson, Thomas Scheel, Thomas West Jensen and Torsten Stephensen.
