Christensen & Co is an architectural firm based in Copenhagen, Denmark. It was founded in 2006 by Michael Christensen and is particularly known for its work in sustainable architecture, often with the educational sector.

History[edit]

Christensen & Co was established in 2006 by architect Michael Christensen who came from a position as partner and managing creative director in Henning Larsen Architects. Only a few month later the firm won a competition for the design of a campus for the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden.[1] The winning entry had a high environmental profile with an energy consumption only a third of what is normal in similar buildings.[2] Since then firm has won a number of international architectural competitions, including a 70,000 m² research and educational centre at the Karolinska Institute in southern Stockholm (2008),[3] a sustainable masterplan for a new district in the Dutch city Almere (2009)[4] and a new city hall in Lund, Sweden (2010).[5]

Christensen & Co has also designed Denmark's first public CO2-neutral building, a faculty building designed for the Faculty of Science at the University of Copenhagen.[6]
