Lomar Arkitekter
Lomar Arkitekter AB was founded in 1995 by Pontus Lomar.
Pontus Lomar, Dipl. Architect

He is the founder of the company. He was born in 1959 in Ludvika, which is a small industrial town in the forested interior of Sweden. After working as a logger for a few years, he went to Gothenburg to study architecture at Chalmers University of Technology. While there, he was mentored by the Swedish architect, Professor Jan Gezellius. Upon graduation, he moved to Stockholm and worked for Ahrbom Arkitektkontor for 6 years before starting his own office, Lomar Arkitekter, in 1994. The office has grown steadily as the number and size of the projects has increased. Presently, the office employs 20 architects, interior architects, and structural engineers, engaged in a variety of projects in Sweden and abroad.

Klas Åkerman, Dipl. Architect

He is the vice president of Lomar Arkitekter. He was born in 1948 in Stockholm. After architectural studies at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, city planning courses at Stockholm University, and a degree in building renovation from Chalmers in Gothenburg, he has worked for more than 20 years at several architectural offices in Stockholm as lead architect. He also has 10 years of experience in city planning. He has been at Lomar Arkitekter since 2007.

Philosophy

We believe that good architecture results when the in-depth analysis of each project’s unique conditions guides the very first sketches and is then applied throughout the design process. The client’s needs and the users’ requirements are central factors in our analysis. We also bring environmental considerations into every project. The development of environmental expertise in our office is ongoing and is supplemented on most projects by external environmental consultants. Larger projects are normally certified by the Swedish environmental rating system “Miljöklassad byggnad”.

We are pleased that our projects cover a wide swath of the profession, including ski area master-planning, large office complexes, museums, conceptual development of commercial chains, private homes, renovation, interior design, and historic country farmhouses. It allows us to work with purely contemporary buildings and interiors - as well as historic preservation and adaptive reuse. Since the inception of the office, we have always had projects underway in foreign countries, including France, Italy, Spain, Finland, and USA. This is made possible by the diversity of our staff: architects and interior designers from 5 different countries, with experience from furniture design to urban planning.
