Lorentz Harboe Ree (12 March 1888, Stange, Hedmark – 8 March 1962) was a Norwegian architect.

He was born in Stange, and graduated from the Norwegian Institute of Technology in 1915.[1] Early on he worked with Harald Aars on several projects. Most of the buildings were raised in the districts of Frogner, St. Hanshaugen and Bislett, often in the neo-baroque style.[2] From 1920 he had an architect's office in Kristiania together with Carl Buch. His main work was the Vigeland Museum. Kinopaleet, erected 1924, was demolished in 1964. His preferred style was the neo-classic style.[1]
