Dannemand Frost Architects is a design studio with extensive experience in transforming existing buildings. For the past 10 years, owner and lead architect Esben Dannemand Frost have specialized in the transformation of industrial architecture into new use.
In our work of transforming existing structures, we focus on developing the site’s potentials, and providing the strategic and aesthetic basis for realizing a new form and function. We develop the project from idea to finished project by being present in the development, by getting to know it well.
We have extensive experience in developing locally based transformation projects involving cooperation between volunteers, private and public stakeholders. We are driven by the goal of high architectural quality in the real world, and we achieve this through an approach based on artistic ambition, technical knowledge and collaboration.
We see the existing structures as a resource that can create value for the user, the owner and the community. This approach is a societal agenda that we believe is necessary, and which is at the same time a personal driving force that can reconcile technology and function with place and aesthetics.
