Gottlieb Paludan Architects welcomes new partners


With a unique focus on architecture and planning in a field that can be described as infrastructure, Gottlieb Paludan Architects has succeeded in developing a company that has become one of the largest firms of architects in Denmark, employing over 110 employees. On the drawing board, there are currently a number of major projects, including the Copenhagen Light Rail, the Sydhavn Metro, new biomass CHP unit at Amager (Bio4), Apple Data Centre in Viborg together with several large-scale climate-adaptation projects in Copenhagen, Gladsaxe, Kgs. Lyngby and Hillerød. It is indicative of the company and the way in which it operates that Gottlieb Paludan Architects has served many of its current clients for more than half a century.

As a natural and necessary consequence of this positive development, Gottlieb Paludan Architects appointed on 1 January 2016 the following five new partners to further strengthen the company’s profile and focus: Chief Operating Officer Pernille Stahlschmidt Tørning, Head of Department for Mobility & Infrastructure Mette Neimann, Head of Design Thomas Bonde-Hansen, Head of Department for Energy & Utilities John Strandfelt and Head of Design Tine Kjærulff Bay. The five new partners complement the three existing partners: Head of Client Consultancy Frederik Ejlers, Creative Director Jesper Gottlieb and Chief Executive Officer Kristian Hagemann.

“We are now eight partners to represent the company and drive forward our strategies. The newly appointed partners are all highly experienced key employees, spanning Gottlieb Paludan Architects’ technical, creative and commercial profile and focusing on the highest aesthetic and technical quality across the company’s core activities. We are looking forward to reaching even further – and deeper – within our particular specialisms.” says Chief Executive Officer Kristian Hagemann.

Gottlieb Paludan Architects will be moving to new premises in the Nordhavn area of Copenhagen later this year when the appointments of the new partners will be officially celebrated.
