EFFEKT is a Danish architectural office based in Copenhagen operating within the fields of modern architecture and visionary urban planning and research. The company was established in 2007 and currently employs 25 full time staff under the creative direction of the two Partners Tue Hesselberg Foged and Sinus Lynge. Conducting assignments at a great variety of scales, they excel in the integration of the built environment into the social fabric of the city. They combine an exploratory approach with thorough research, analysis and professional accountability. At the same time we work enthusiastically, creatively and curiously because we believe that this approach is essential to the development of great design solutions for a world in constant change. They believe that deep analysis and a clearly defined approach are integral parts of a successful design, because asking the right questions is part of finding the right answer. EFFEKT has received numerous awards and won several Danish as well as international competitions ranging in fields of architecture, planning and landscape projects.
