Jarmund / Vigsnæs Architects were established in 1995 after teaching and independent practice for both partners. The office employs today 12 architects. In 2004 we included a third partner, Alessandra Kosberg. She is born in 1967, graduated from the Oslo School of Architecture in 1995, and started working with JVA in 1997.
The practice focuses on projects with potential for outstanding and meaningful architecture, most often closely related to nature and preferably in strong natural settings with harsh climate. The practice explores modern possibilities with sensual and tactile means, seeking the right character for the place and purpose. Clear and understandable strategies attempts to results that are both self-evident and sensational. Larger projects results most commonly from competition-winning schemes, smaller from the reputation of former clients and structures.
