Ax Jensen & Goehring Architects is a design oriented architecture practice, that works within the fields of architecture, interior design, urbanism, product design and architectural research.
“We dream, we plan, we build”
Any project starts by building a dream. Fueled with curiosity, exploration, experimentation and playfulness our initial, creative design process starts by establishing a dream that excels the conventional, in order to ensure unique and innovative design solutions. Concurrently we undertake thorough and professional research analysis, adopting inventive technical solutions which we use to plan the realisation of the project. Once a satisfying synergy between the initial dream and plan of actualisation is established, the building process can begin.
Current projects include two office buildings and a masterplan in Denmark, a restaurant in Melbourne, interior projects in London and several private villas in Denmark. Ax Jensen & Goehring Architects are currently teaching at The Architectural Association School of Architecture in London.
Despite its young age the practice has already produced and completed a string of successful architecture and interior projects. Based in Copenhagen, Denmark, the office culture actively combines the local Danish design and craft traditions, with the use of modern and emerging technologies in the building- and engineering industries. We care about aesthetic details and aim for sustainability through design, by focussing on enduring spatial and material design solutions, that unfold in relation to the physical, organisational, social, cultural and economic context of each unique project.
With more than 50 combined years of collective, professional experience obtained in various pratices such as Pritzker Prize winner Zaha Hadid in London, William McDonough + Partners and Asymptote, as well as other prominent practices in The Hague, New York, Los Angeles and Copenhagen, the office was established in 2015 with a comprehensive knowledge and expertise, which enables Ax Jensen & Goehring Architects to provide unique design solutions with a broad and knowledgable perspective on all aspects related to architectural design and planning.
“Eye level experience”. Our architecture, at all scales, takes it starting point in the spatial experience from eye level. We believe that architecture should be sensed and experienced through the user’s presence.
“Aesthetics”. We engage any project with a critical reflection on art, culture, nature and history, and put high priority on aesthetic quality in all our projects.
“Modern tactility”. We put emphasis on combining traditional materials and craftsmanship with new forms to obtain a modern expression, combined with contemporary functionality.
“Social adhesion”. Keen awareness of the stakeholder’s true vision and its manifestation in the architecture, is a hallmark of our work which endears the works towards the greater society at large.
‘The details are not the details. They make the design’
