We aim to design projects beyond expectations. The ambition of White Architects is to guide every client to the most suitable design solution, combining best practice with innovative thinking. We believe the inception; feasibility and initial design phases shall be treated in one creative process, with 100% focus on client and end users needs.
We live in an era where natural, technological and medical science is merging into one unified research and development environment.
The White Innovation Process is a tool we use to collect maximum input in a short time through a variety of workshops with participants from different fields of expertise. This sets a point of departure to develop dynamic and creative environments.
With a wide range of projects in the portfolio we are the leading architect company in Scandinavia established in 1951, we are today 550 employees.
Within the field of Life Science we have managed projects such as the Biomedical Science Centre in Lund, the National Laboratory of Forensic Science and the National Board of orensic Medicine, both in Linköping. We proudly won the international design competition for New Karolinska Solna University Hospital, one of the largest and most innovative healthcare projects in the world. This project is currently in the production information stage being developed by the White/Tengbom Architect Team. The concept for the winning Karolinska Hospital proposal was developed from a diagram that treats research and clinical practice as one interlacing with the medical university facilities as an ‘Academic Mall’.
Every project is a challenge of finding what is most important for the customer and refl ecting this in a physical environment that can naturally support the activity. Through our business intelligence and our projects we keep updated with new findings about the effect of the environment on creativity and job satisfaction, this is of great importance for Life Science projects.
As technical developments proceed at an ever-greater speed, it is important that lessons learned in the field of life Science are served by fl exible structures and highly functional laboratories. For the development-oriented client it is essential to be supplemented with natural meeting points, indoors and outdoors, and to create a stimulating working area. An example of this thinking is our design for The Faculty Club at Karolinska Institute is an informal yet exclusive meeting place for the employees.
White has studied future learning environments to support the mission of the Karolinska Institute to help it be an attractive education and research environment. The role of the teacher has changed from being the sole possessor of knowledge to being a coach in the search for information. Learning environments and working environments are converging, both with an increasing need for meeting places conducive to informal learning. Our results comprise a number of tools for creating tomorrow’s learning environments. The tools consist of a premises search guide, an application model and a concept design manual.
Our wide range of projects gives us experience from other fields like urban planning, cultural, commercial and educational environments. White multidisciplinary teams are committed to providing long term functioning and efficient solutions facing the future with a spoken focus on sustainability that is appreciated by our customers.
