Murman Arkitekter AB was established in 1985 and today has a staff of 30 architects and interior designers.
We work with office, retail and residential projects, with an emphasis on performing both architectural and interior design.
In 2009 we won the 1St price in Category “Holiday “at the World architectural festival in Barcelona with Restaurant Tusen in Ramundberget, Sweden.
In 2009 we also won the 1St price with a Military museum in Karlstad, Sweden. (Infanteribrigadmuseum)
And in 2006 we won the 1St price in an architectural competition about a new building for the Swedish Sámi parliament in the northern Sweden.
We strive to create structures and spaces with strong individual identities and just like people buildings derive much of their identity from their physical surroundings and social context. Thus regional culture and spatial conditions are crucial.
We actively seek projects which have us perform work we have not done before because we feel it keeps us on our toes in a way which benefits both ourselves and our clients. We try to maintain a mix of large and small projects, public and residential because it constantly teaches you new ways of solving different problems. We also believe strongly in a synthesis between the building, its interior and surroundings and we consequently try to maintain a grasp on all associated disciplines – first and foremost architecture and interior design – but also landscaping and planning.
We attempt to design architecture, which responds as directly as possible to its context and intended use, and as such it is neither timeless nor quite contemporary. It is shaped by its surroundings and utility, both of which have their traditions but are simultaneously in constant flux. Hopefully our design can reflect that.
One of our core values as a practice is sustainability. We designed an annex for the first Swan ecolabelled hotel in Sweden (Sånga-Säby Mälarblick) and are very much focused on the impact of both our practise and designs on the environment.
We want to create democratic, accessible architecture.
We strive to meeting or exceeding expectations on budget, on time
In recent years, most of the office’s work has been the result of architectural competitions. During the year 2005 the new Swedish office for Pfizer for 500 people was finished, and during 2007, students moved in 285 apartments in the centre of Stockholm. We designed the office building for the administration of the 2007 Alpine World Ski Championships in Åre, and made an infill project I the centre of Stockholm with 25 apartments and a kindergarten.
