About Change this
Code is an architectural office based in Oslo, Norway. The office was established in Oslo in 1997, by partners Bjarne Ringstad, Julian Lynghjem, Gaute Stensrud, and Henning Kaland. Ole Einejord joined in as partner in 1999.
The point of departure for the firm’s projects is a positive, non-judgmental approach to the present. Within their works lies a consciousness about the coexistence of factors such as landscape, texture, culture, politics, sustainability, performance and economics.
At the moment, Code has nine architects and three assistants. Projects are developed in a tight interdisciplinary, cross-cultural collaboration with a network of specialists from such diverse disciplines as construction, environmental protection, landscaping and project management as well as various technical fields.
Code has won a number of national and international architecture competitions. The portfolio includes private residences, office buildings, schools, hotels, and a number of urban development projects. Current ventures include residential housing in Tromsø, Hokksund and Oslo, as well as National Tourist Route projects in Senja and Gaularfjell. Code was also invited as one of 10 architects worldwide for the competition on a new Edvard Munch museum in Oslo.
Code’s work has been shown at exhibits in Oslo, London, Venice and Hamburg, among other places. All Code partners have been giving courses and lectures at several universities and organizations in Norway and abroad.
