Philosophy

C. F. Møller Architects has created buildings primarily through close co-operation within the practice as well as with clients and fellow design consultants. It is not a question of individual, personal achievement, but rather a process where everyone involved strives for a common architectural goal. As a result, we are very reliant on dialogue and, in particular, a shared philosophy - a professional foundation, as it were - to function as our architectural base.

This shared architectural base, nurtured by a long history of craftsmanship and Nordic tradition, has evolved naturally from the extensive activities of the practice. People, place and function are the sources of our procedural foundation. Our architectural base, solely intended as a basic belief, not a straightjacket preventing testing and the research of new ideas, is an essential ingredient for communicating in a common language. It must, however, constantly be discussed and further developed via internal production and debate. With our philosophy, we strive with artistic vigour for an animated and evolving architecture that applauds simplicity, clarity and unpretentiousness, but also diversity. International trends and the changing ideals of society inspire us and are interpreted and translated into our architecture.

We consider the environment, resource awareness, a sensible building budget, higher productivity and good quality to be an indispensable part of our current and future work. These overall considerations are built into our projects, including everything from general planning to the design of building components.


Vision

Emerging from our architectural and philosophical foundation is the goal of being recognised globally and to be among the best practices in Scandinavia and Europe. The building industry is in a constant state of change. We want to be part of this process by setting new standards for the design and construction of buildings, for example, in developing new models for procurement and collaboration.

Independence
We are aware of and bound by our role as decision-makers for our physical environment.
As independent consultants, we choose methods, techniques and materials in dialogue with professional partners, but independent of manufacturers' interests.

Credibility
With regard to our clients and consultants, our ideas and decisions are well substantiated and documented.
Our work is relevant, topical and constructive.
We are dedicated to ensuring the best possible psychological and physical conditions at our offices.

Professionalism
Our work is based on the wish that function, architecture and the construction budget form a synthesis.
We quality assure and evaluate our work based on current systems and specialist knowledge within the practice.
We collaborate and willingly share our knowledge and experience with others.
We engage ourselves actively and constructively - also in one another's work.
We strive to increase our effectiveness and productivity through professional development and continued education.
We are also aware of the importance of harmonising work and family and recognise the social responsibility of the practice.
