Studio Nord is an architectural design practice originating in London, Denmark and New Zealand.
Thom Gill and Helle Westergaard have been working together since 2004 and established Studio Nord in 2012. Coming from a culture of European design Studio Nord has an open-minded but rigorous approach to architecture.
Our process is relaxed and collaborative, drawing on the best ideas from clients, engineers or artists and patient study of the project’s physical and social context. We work with clients to think through their functional needs and economic constraints.
We integrate sustainable design principles into the background of our work in various ways, from efficient planning to orienting the building for sun and wind. For projects with higher ambitions we look for optimal low energy solutions.
