– For me, as an architect, it has always been the ultimate challenge to work with how we live. Our home is the primary frame around our lives. This is where we want to feel at ease and at the same time, we would like our home to reflect who we are and respond to the way we live, says architect Mette Lange.

Mette Lange’s architecture builds on principles for sustainability and social responsibility. Her ambition is to build houses responding to the specific site and client. Hence, local material and solutions for minimizing energy use has priority in her projects. Mette supports UN Global Compact principles.

– The scale of single-family housing is suitable for the size of my studio. It accommodates the challenges of composition, light, materials and building techniques. It also goes along the line of a distinguished Danish architectural tradition, in which I have my roots.

The office is mainly working on residential projects in Denmark, but also in India, Iran, Sri Lanka and Iceland. In Protected content Lange Architects participated on a multidiciplinary project IHOUSE with Danish and indian collaborators. The aim of the project was to build sustainable housing for the Indian market.
Mette Lange subtly brings to life the principles of sustainable architecture in her gracefully executed projects, states Jenni Reuter, curator of the lecture series.

Lecture starts at 18:00.
