Across diverse typologies and scales, 3XN's work is driven by the conviction that architecture should give something back--to people, to communities, and to our planet. Since 1986, we have specialised in transformational projects: projects that give obsolete structures new form and character, that transform dormant neighbourhoods into thriving cultural hubs, or that unite disparate organizations into collaborative communities. A commitment to the highest standards of sustainability and design excellence unites the studio’s portfolio. Form and performance are not at odds, but rather continuously enhance and shape one another.
With offices in Copenhagen (HQ), Stockholm, Sydney, New York, and London, we are a firm of close to 200 professionals spanning a wide range of nationalities, genders, backgrounds, and specialties. The diverse perspective of our global practice gives greater depth to our holistic methodology which prioritizes aesthetics, behaviour, curiosity, and circularity.
In 2007 3XN founded innovation company GXN. The mission of GXN is simple, to help make buildings that are better for the planet and better for the people using them. Since then we have driven sustainable innovation in the built environment, focusing on circular economy, behavioural design, and digital technologies.
Together 3XN and GXN have delivered some of the world’s most ambitious and groundbreaking buildings including the world’s first upcycled high-rise, Quay Quarter Tower; the highest ever scoring LEED-certified building, Olympic House; and North America’s tallest timber office building, T3 Bayside in Toronto.
