Office presentation

3XN’s approach to architecture can be explained by three main points:

We welcome complexity and view the challenges of a project, site and program as positive drivers for creating unique architecture with a clear statement.

We value context and put focus on developing a design, which impacts its surroundings in a positive way; adding new qualities to its location and neighbourhood.

We believe that architecture shapes behavior – therefore, we strive to create architecture that fosters a dynamic social interaction, synergy and enhanced well-being for the users of the building.

3XN’s portfolio includes a range of award winning large scale projects such as Amsterdam’s Music Hall – Het Muziekgebouw, Museum of Liverpool, Denmark’s Aquarium – The Blue Planet and the UN City in Copenhagen.  For the past several years, 3XN has worked on many projects in Sweden, including an extension for the University of Uppsala, the headquarters for Swedbank and the Odenplan Station in Stockholm.

The work of GXN – 3XN’s innovation unit, responds to the need for better knowledge about the potential for integrating new materials, technologies and cross-disciplinary expertise in the projects of 3XN. Thus, GXN plays an active role in always keeping 3XN’s projects on the forefront of sustainable innovation in the building industry.

3XN is staffed by approx. 75 people and has offices in Copenhagen and Stockholm.
