Tailor Made arkitekter
Tailor Made architects was founded in 2013 by Fredrik Olson. The firm started out of the desire to be able to focus on truly sustainable architecture with a focus on the development of Naturhus and Eco-Cycle Architecture. Since 2017, the company has been run by Fredrik Olson and Anna Nilsson with the aim of developing the Naturhus concept further in close collaboration within the consulting group Greenhouse Living. Tailor Made arkitekter is architecture firm with a strong focus on sustainable solutions and how the ecocycles can be integrated into architecture and urban planning.
We are based in Göteborg on the swedish westcoast and we do projects all around the world.
In the sustainable cities of tomorrow the cycles of water, nutrition and energy will be closed at an extremely local level. Within a neighborhood, within a block, or even within an individual building.
Tailor Made architects received 2023's:
Architecture Scholarship from the Irma and Einar Forseth Foundation
The justification from the Swedish Academy of Architecture:
Sveriges Arkitekter nominated Tailor made Arkitekter for the scholarship as the office is a pioneer in Sweden when it comes to designing urban environments and buildings as integrated climate zones which form their own, local and cyclical ecosystems. They brought up early on the issue of how to build climate-smart and long-term, and we don't think their work has received the attention it actually deserves. Fredrik and Anna's great commitment to building and climate issues has resulted in a beautifully designed and innovative architecture that creates everyday joy for its users and contributes to a long-term sustainable society at a time when we now more than ever need to find new ways forward.
We hope that the scholarship can contribute to the office receiving greater attention for its work and its skills and can in the future be a role model for architects to look at the designed living environment from a larger perspective. If we are going to build at all in the future, this is how we should actually build!
