Nicolai Bo Andersen Arkitekt works in the field between research, education and practice.
The main subject is transformation of and additions to listed landscapes, cities and buildings. A central question is how historical, technical and aesthetic characteristics of our building culture can be transformed into a contemporary attention.

The aim is to unite phenomenological qualities, a strong spatial identity, and low resource consumption in a sustainable building culture.
