Our objective to create comfortable spaces to live-, work- & play, through creative design, by listening to the client’s needs.
Award winning practice with a fresh, original and honest approach to design

Strey Architects is an award winning practice with a fresh, original and honest approach to design.

We strive to create meaningful, comfortable and sensible spaces through fulfilling the client’s needs and wishes, as well as considering the characteristics and restrictions of the site in the design process.

Strey Architects, believes that all architects should incorporate the use of passive design- & sustainable design principles by default, when designing every building or project.

We strive to protect the natural resources of the earth through re-purposing, recycling, upcycling and utilizing natural products & materials where possible.

We go beyond the industry standard expected from a professional architect these days, and would gladly go the extra mile for an appreciative client.
