Tham & Videgard Hansson Arkitekter was founded in Stockholm in 1999 by Bolle Tham (1970) and Martin Videgard Hansson (1968) with the ambition to offer a progressive and contemporary alternative in the wide field of architecture. The practice work on building design, planning and interior design in commissions for public-, commercial - and private clients.
The objective is to create a distinct and relevant architecture with the starting point in the unique context and the specific conditions of each project.
The practice has been awarded prizes and nominations in several open international competitions and has also attracted attention for experimental interiors and housing projects. In 2005 TVH won, among 300 proposals, the competition for the new Museum of Art in Kalmar that opened to the public in May 2008.
In 2007 after pre-qualification of four international teams, TVH won the competition for the new School of Architecture and the new Campus Entrance at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm. Completion is due to 2011.
Ongoing and recently completed commissions include several houses, housing and planning projects, the Kalmar Museum of Art, the Ordos100 house in China, kit-houses for Arkitekthus, a Kindergarten at Telefonplan, a new permanent exhibition at the Museum of Far Eastern Antiquities and the new School of Architecture and the new Moderna museet - the Museum of Modern Art - in Malmo, Sweden.
As an integrated part of the architectural practice, Bolle Tham and Martin Videgard Hansson also take an active part in education; teach and lecture at schools of architecture in Sweden and abroad.They also participate as representants for the Swedish Association of Architects as members of the jury for architectural competitions.
