Tengbom is ranked as one of the world’s most innovative architectural firms*, and it’s also one of the oldest in existence. With a rich and multifaceted history, we’ve made it our habit and our mission to keep our eyes on the future – not least because we intend to stay relevant for hundreds of years to come. We’re humanists, driven by creating magical, valuable, lasting architecture that makes the world a better place.
We believe in personal relationships and dialogues. In co-creating the future together with each other, our clients, and the world around us. With 600 employees in locations across Sweden and Finland (not to mention mobile and site-specific hubs), we can appear with the right team and toolbox wherever we’re needed. This agile way of working guarantees a high-quality delivery regardless of location.
For us, architecture is about quality of life, something we strive to bring to every project we undertake. Ecological, social and economic sustainability is our Alpha and Omega – a responsibility that we don’t want to compromise on. Nothing we do is ever ready-made. Instead, our success is based on questioning and investigating each new assignment with fresh eyes. It’s knowledge which drives us forward. Not just on projects, but also initiatives such as #Tengbomtalks, our highly-regarded forum examining questions affecting architecture and the built environment.
“Instead of reminiscing of past times, a modern architect should adopt a wider stance – investigating the needs of society now and in the future.”
– Ivar Tengbom
We’re your strategic partner, a permanent companion, who brings each project home. We’ll often adopt a prototyping approach to reveal innovative solutions. Architecture does not survive on old merits, especially when building for the future. Our founder, Ivar Tengbom, knew this when he began this practice in 1906, and it remains our cornerstone to this day. By always looking forward, our architecture shifts boundaries, perceptions and society.
*In 2016, Fast Company named Tengbom as the fourth most innovative architecture firm in the world.
