From Sir John Soane’s Lincoln Inn Fields to Gordon Matta-Clark and the office’s own works: transformations of traditional housing and cultural heritage to the new buildings.

The studio is specialising in site-specific construction projects of high architectural calibre.The studio works with adaptations, alterations, conversions, modifications and transformations in projects ranging from new buildings to cultural heritage, with a special focus on projects that give something back to the city. The studio is committed to creating projects with architectural longevity, characterised by simplicity, flexibility and distinctive details – big and small.Uffe Leth and Karsten Gori both teach at the Royal Academy School of Architecture in Copenhagen.About the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture, Design and Conservation :The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Architecture, Design and Conservation, educates some of the most sought-after architects in the world.
