Sanden+Hodnekvam Architects is an architecture studio founded by John Sanden and Ingvild Hodnekvam in 2014. The studio is based in Oslo/Nesodden, Norway, and is engaged in a varied range of projects all over the country.
Their work balances between simplicity in form and richness in tectonics and atmospheres. They seek simple solutions with honesty of materials and construction in mind, always striving for the rational, aesthetic and sustainable solution.
The studio has won several architectural competitions and their work is widely published. They have been included in Wallpaper`s list of the worlds most promising emerging practices, and their work have been nominated for the European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award. Both partners have also been teaching and guest critics at NTNU and AHO.
