Gert Wingårdh Wingårdhs

Wingårdhs is an innovative architecture practice that has presented benchmark buildings for sustainable, sensual and efficient design for forty years. A staff of circa 200 professionals operates under the company’s founder Gert Wingårdh. The office has pioneered a wide range of designs, from masterplans, housing schemes, civic buildings and transport facilities to private homes, interiors and product design. In a process of dialogue, the architects work intimately together not only with clients but also with superior specialists in every stage of the design process.

The internationally operating office is based in Gothenburg, Stockholm and Malmö. No other Swedish firm has been bestowed with more Kasper Salin Awards, the main national prize. Most recently 2022 for Helsingborg Water Tower.

The approach combines sensitivity to place and culture with an ambition to apply achievements in technology. The knowledge-driven firm is also actively involved in enhancing the common concern for the built environment thru numerous publications and lectures.

Gert Wingårdh.- Architect SAR/MSA, is Wingårdhs owner and CEO. He was born in Skövde in 1951 and graduated from Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg in 1975.

He founded Wingårdhs in 1977, and since then the quality of the office's large production has generated many prizes and awards both in Sweden and internationally.

Gert himself has been awarded the Prince Eugene Medal and the Gustaf Dalén Medal, among others. He’s a Hon.D.Tech and professor at the Chalmers University of Technology and a member of the Royal Academy of Sciences and the Royal Academy of Fine Arts.
