Lundgaard & Tranberg Arkitekter is a leading Danish architectural office founded by Boje Lundgaard y Lene Tranberg in 1984, which they owned, managed and developed together until 2004. The office provides a wide range of professional architectural services, including urban and landscape planning as well as product and furniture design. For more than 25 years, they have made a name for themselves participating in competitions and realizing a wide range of projects, and positioned the company as one of Denmark’s most renowned and award-winning architectural offices.

Over the years, many of their architects have cooperated with leading knowledge centres on research and pilot building projects focusing on the improvement of building products and processes and particularly on sustainable housing. It has been awarded many national and international prizes and widely published in books and leading periodicals worldwide. The office has particularly made a name for itself for the ability to “read” or empathise with a given location and integrate the individual project with the surrounding environment in a striking yet harmonious manner.

Lundgaard & Tranberg has won the prestigious RIBA European Award (awarded by the Royal Institute of British Architects) several times, most recently for the Harbour Isle Apartments, Copenhagen, and the SEB Bank & Pension headquarters, Copenhagen, in 2011.
