Scottish Eco-Town houses architect : Arkitema, Denmark

Arkitema is a leading Danish architecture practice working to make a difference and create better conditions for architecture. It focuses not just on the building or object but also on the social responsibilities, finances and production processes of the project. It involves clients, users and contractors in the process as early as possible to accumulate a sound knowledge foundation at the earliest stage of the project. This interdisciplinary process does away with habitual thinking and paves the way for the creation of meaningful and innovative architecture. Arkitema has drawing offices in Aarhus and Copenhagen, as well as a representative office in Beijing.
