Our aim at AIX is to create architecture that makes a difference and creates a better community. We accept assignments in all kinds of areas from town planning to new construction and restoration. We design high-quality contemporary architecture, taking careful account of existing buildings. With our wide variety of expertise our team can work together to find the best solution for every individual project.
Our aim is to form spatial experiences where function and beauty intermingle, reinforcing one another: spaces that evoke feelings, change with the times and provide the best setting for people to live and to interact. We call them living spaces.
AIX was founded in 2001 when six architectural practices merged into one. Since the 1970s, our offices have been in the Industricentralen building, designed by Ragnar Östberg, one of the leading Swedish architects of the early1900s. Now we are Sweden’s tenth-largest architectural practice, owned by 12 senior partners and some 40 employees. There are currently about 100 of us, most of whom are architects, but there are also interior designers, engineers, urban architects, architecture conservation professionals, theatre consultants, lighting designers, economists, IT technicians and communicators.
We operate in four sectors:
Town planning & residential properties. Town planning assignments cover vision proposals for larger areas and detailed planning of buildings and urban districts. Our residential properties work encompasses all stages from design to final documentation.
Cultural environment & restoration comprises maintaining existing buildings and extensions, often in sensitive settings. Cultural heritage value descriptions, building care programmes and care and maintenance planning are assignments we perform as architecture conservation professionals.
Commercial premises & their interior design comprises new construction and restoration of offices, retail spaces, hotels and travel hubs. We also undertake interior design work in old, converted and completely new environments. A specialist area is the theatre, including its technology and lighting.
Public buildings & educational premises include new construction and restoration of schools, sports facilities and public areas such as museums.
Our environmental policy describes how we help reduce future environmental impact. We have skills in solid wood construction and new production of environmentally classified buildings. Our knowledge and expertise of cultural heritage construction means we can help build sustainable communities by creating long-term, well-functioning environments.
