Practice Ideology

Fragment is an architectural office that works with inclusive site development and the multifunctional city. The office draws up both service offers in cities and towns such as schools and cultural centres. “But we have a special heart for housing. And we design with consideration for nature and the neighbourhood, always with thorough user involvement and a certainty that those who will use the houses know best how they want to feel. But maybe we can suggest something that makes it even a little better?”

Fragment also works with landscape, urban nature and urban ecology, both through research and development projects such as Sanke and they work with social sustainability through projects such as Ormsundveien Økogrend and Artists’ Housing for Unge Kunstneres Samfund.
