Michael Kruse, Christian Dahle and Mårten Leringe have become new co-owners of C.F. Møller, strengthening the architectural practice's management in Denmark, Norway and Sweden.
C.F. Møller is proud to present three new partners as co-owners of C.F. Møller A/S. Michael Kruse will serve as a partner in Denmark, Christian Dahle as a partner in Norway, and Mårten Leringe as a partner in Sweden.
"As an architectural practice, we continue to welcome new partners, safeguarding succession within the partner group. This ensures continuity and professional development," says Klavs Hyttel, chairman of the Board of Directors and partner in C.F. Møller.
"For several years, Christian, Mårten and Michael have played important roles in developing C.F. Møller's professional profile, strengthening the architectural practice in their respective areas. They've won competitions, helped to develop our market shares and created substantial added value in Aarhus, Stockholm and Oslo. It's yet another major step forward for our company that they are now part of the partner group," he says.
From Danish to Scandinavian
C.F. Møller is one of Scandinaivia's largest and oldest architectural practices, and since the millennium rollover, it has spread its wings even wider from Denmark to neighbouring Norway and Sweden. This all began when C.F. Møller won competitions for Bislett Stadium in Oslo in 1996 and, at the start of the 2000s, Akershus University Hospital – two important projects for the architectural practice's development in the early years of the new millennium.
"With the offices in Oslo and Stockholm, we've developed from a Danish practice to defining ourselves as a firm of architects that 's firmly anchored throughout Scandinavia," says Klavs Hyttel.
"The inclusion of Christian Dahle and Mårten Leringe as new partners completes this radical transformation, and cements the importance of our Norwegian and Swedish offices as a key element of our self-understanding and Nordic perspective."
Important projects in the pipeline
The three new C.F. Møller partners have each contributed to the architectural practice's development in recent years.
In Aarhus, Michael Kruse has, for instance, actively developed the competition environment across the architectural practice's offices, while also serving as the partner responsible for the development and design of several ongoing projects – including the new Frederiks Plads quarter. In Sweden, the studio is a major player in a growing market of timber construction projects and an active member of the research project Tall Timber Buildings, while major projects such as the life science building Biomedicum and Värtaterminalen in Stockholm are underway. The Oslo office is busy with projects that include Krystalklar in Oslo, Kristiansund Opera and Culture House, and the New Haraldsplass Hospital.
Klavs Hyttel emphasises that the three new partners all have exceptional professional and personal qualities.
"The new C.F. Møller partners are distinguished by their professional qualifications and talent. Without these, they would not have become so important a part of the Group. Their personal qualities – and ability to facilitate cooperation and create successes in interaction with the entire company – are highly valued," says Klavs Hyttel.
Michael Kruse, Christian Dahle and Mårten Leringe officially became partners in C.F. Møller as from 25 May 2016.
