Marge Arkitekter works in architecture on every scale. Among the
projects in the office today there is a city development project at
Sergelstorg in central Stockholm, feed storage for deers in
Upplands Väsby, a house of nature on Öland, a refurbishment of the
Jewish museum, and several schools and nursing homes.
The contemporary architecture developed by Marge Arkiteter's
comes from a thorough analysis of the site and the programme,
leading to strategic and conceptually strong solutions. This
analytical work is a tool to zoom out and in a wider context
investigate the site and its physical and social aspects. The aim
for Marge is, through strong architectural ideas, to create
conditions for social and ecologically sustainable environments.
Despite scale, if it is a furniture, a house or a city development
project, the same methodology is applied.
Marge Arkitekter was established in 2002 by Pye
Aurell Ehrström, Katarina Grundsell, Louise Masreliez and Susanne
Ramel. The firm rapidly became recognized as one of the young firms
representing a contemporary development of architecture in Sweden.
The firm has an extensive and broadly-based portfolio including
private, commercial and public projects. Marge Arkitekter has
received publicity in the national and international press and has
been exhibited in Sweden and around Europe. The firm currently has
about 30 employees.
