Johansen Skovsted Arkitekter is founded by the two architects, Søren Johansen and Sebastian Skovsted.
Johansen Skovsted Arkitekter is experienced in developing projects from the first sketch to the completed construction. The office works competently with building heritage as well as in protected natural environments and physical contexts that require delicate responses in both architecture and landscape. The office seeks to bridge the gap between contemporary building processes and materials, and basic architectural values, through a synthesis of ideas, techniques and manufacturing methods.
Both Søren Johansen and Sebastian Skovsted have studied architecture at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts Schools of Architecture, Design and Conservation (KADK). Sebastian Skovsted has furthermore conducted parts of his studies at TU Delft. In addition to their practice they teach at KADK at the Institute of Architecture and Technology.
Porto Academy is the result of an enormous passion for architecture as a discipline. We admire the figures that dream about it, who build, study and promote it. We believe that practice - as an exercise of the architect’s profession - is central to the future of the discipline, and therefore one of the reasons why we’ve founded Porto Academy. For a week period, one lives the passion for the discipline of architecture and enjoys intellectual freedom.
