Since 1935 Erik Møller Architects (EMA) has been one of Denmark's most important architect companies, characterized by creativity and high professionalism. EMA delivers safe solutions in architecture that will stand the test of time according to sustainability and in relation to the environment. EMA s approach is to create architecture that takes the historic and the social context of buildings and environment into consideration.
EMA combines the understanding of cultural heritage with the ability to work innovatively and to rethink our cities and buildings, to make sure they create value for many years.
The office is organized in three areas of focus:
CULTURAL HERITAGE, INSTITUTIONS and HOUSING.
One of our strengths is the professional span we work within, involving special skills in an interdisciplinary collaboration.
Our projects range from highly complicated restorations to complex new constructions. We solve the tasks based on the knowledge that the best solutions are created from dialogue between people with different backgrounds and skills.
All projects are unique, and our approach is, that every project should be developed from the conditions due to the users and the environment. To do so, we have developed a process that map the cultural values architectonically of the existing situation, and screen the sustainable potential of the project. The result is a tangible document useful as a base for making the right decisions.
Our holistic processes are the foundation for our collaboration, internal in the office as well as external. At the same time we have the opportunity to involve clients, citizens and users in our processes during interviews, workshops and common experiences, with the purpose of creating ownership as a driver for change and innovation.
The goal for EMA is to develop the office through collaborations, where specialists, artists, anthropologists, philosophers and other professions often take part in our project groups, with the purpose of developing our projects.
