“Instead of reminiscing of past times, a modern architect should adopt a wider stance – investigating the needs of society now and in the future” – Ivar Tengbom
Founded in 1906 by Ivar, Tengbom is one of the oldest architectural firms in the industry. It does not however mean they are set in their old ways. In 2016, the firm was included in the four most innovative practices in the world. The studio has 10 offices in Northern Europe with a total of 570 employees. In a very recent renovation of their Stockholm headquarters, the firm chose Mondo’s Uni flooring to cover a space of 35,000 square feet.
The workplace is exciting, for lack of a better word. With views over Stockholm bay, there is something for everyone to appreciate in the visual. To quote the firm: “We have 570 co-workers and equally as many thoughts as to what architecture should be. It is important to us that the living environment we design be allowed to evoke emotions and stimulate debate. We look to contribute to this through our series of talks #TengbomTalks – a platform for public, local and international offices to examine the issues that we discuss across our offices”.
