Welcome to HEJ-Arkitekter

Scandinavia is everywhere

Hej, dear visitors!
We are a young international architecture office placed in Copenhagen.

HEJ stands for Scandinavian philosophy in the international architecture. No matter where it arises. We plan, we implement, we conduct. We build on modern shapes and classic functionality, on beauty and style, on commitment and social effect.

For HEJ architecture does not stop at the panel, urban development and surface broaching are viewed as a whole. Architecture for people and with people.

The focus of our work is to sustainably contribute in the development of the building culture and the utilization of the substance. HEJ develops and plans under the aspect of stability, the individual solution for every project and every constructor.

  • HEJ sees a project through from the first line of a sketch until its finishing.
  • Every project is unique for HEJ and is worked on and looked after individually.

So far apartment constructions, renovations of listed buildings and buildings for the health system have been developed successfully.
