AD Interviews: Jarmund / Vigsnæs Architects

Jarmund / Vigsnæs Architects was the first Nordic practice we featured on ArchDaily after seeing their impressive Svalvard Center, a sharp copper-cladded volume that slowly ages and blends into the landscape.

Since then we have seen many more strong projects of different scales from the Norwegian firm. The firm was established in 1996 by Einar Jarmund and Håkon Vigsnæs, with Alessandra Kosberg who joined as a partner in 2004.

JVA's projects range from small cabins in the woods and interiors, to large scale hospitality projects and urban plans. The firm has developed expertise in designing for the Nordic weather as well as creating connections between the buildings and the distinctive Nordic landscape. With the above as their focus, the practice constantly explores how to innovate through the use and experimentation of materials.

Their work has been featured in recent exhibits, and in their recent monograph.
