Gottlieb Paludan Architects is a large Scandinavian architectural company with offices in Denmark, Norway and Sweden. Our objective is to create greater cohesion through architecture that connects people and urban spaces and that supplies the necessities for everyday living.

The development and design of the basic functions of society constitute a central, professional challenge for us. We transform complex challenges into sustainable architectural solutions within our four market areas: Energy, Water & Industry, Mobility & Transport, Civic & Commercial and Urban Development. We consult in architecture, landscape architecture, urban spaces and design.  

Our company was founded in Copenhagen in 1901 and has been run by changing generations of architects since then. These days, Gottlieb Paludan Architects is a Scandinavian architectural company with a broad international outlook. We are proud of our history, which testifies to cohesion and quality, and we believe that it boosts our capacity to develop strong and beautiful architectural solutions that understand, connect and enrich the world.

We want to contribute to creating a more sustainable world, and we are working proactively with sustainability in all our projects. You can read about our engagement in our Annual Sustainability Report 2019 here.

Our values

Our values

Great architecture evokes great passion. For us, this is the kind of architecture that contributes to solving the challenges we face today. The kind that creates sustainable development, vibrant and diverse cities, beautiful and future-proof structures as well as inviting urban spaces and landscapes for all to enjoy. An integrated approach and collaboration across professional disciplines form the basis for our contributions to a society that functions today and will function tomorrow.

For us, it is all about creating architecture that connects people and cities – architecture that makes life run smoothly, supplies the necessities for everyday living and inspires positive development. We develop solutions and processes that originate from interdisciplinary collaboration for the common good and with the clear aim of creating greater cohesion. We believe that our communities are stronger and the challenges more manageable when the spaces we share and the connections between them are beautiful and beneficial to us all.

We insist that our projects contribute to the common good. We therefore always employ a fully integrated approach to understand and sensitively develop the sites and structures which are entrusted to us. With both vision and insight, we create simple, timeless and responsible architecture. Collaborating closely with the client, users and professionals of other disciplines, we provide functional, technically sound and aesthetically complete solutions which provide their own contribution – be it small or large – to the world around us.   

Working out of offices in Copenhagen, Malmö, Oslo and Trondheim, we strive to create architecture that understands, connects and enriches the whole world. Together we create cohesion. 

At Gottlieb Paludan Architects, we work proactively to integrate the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals in all our projects and practice.
