we design the future of housing


Ahlqvist & Almqvist Architects Ltd has more than 25 years of experience in analysis, program studies, planning and design in Sweden and abroad. The practise has grown continuously and now employs more than 25 designers and associates.

Over the years we have consciously widened the scope of our activities and strengthened our competence. For that we have received several acknowledgments and won many competitions.

In addition to the design of houses and apartment blocks, schools and offices, we have developed a great experience in sustainable urban planning that includes visionary studies, master plans, detail plans, design guidelines and environmental impact studies. Analysis and design of infrastructure work and facilities has become an additional strength.

In all our work we aim at the greate st possible sustainable solutions in terms of social, economic and environmental goals. It is our experience and conviction that mans need for security and solidarity can be combined in economic solutions with modern, sustainable and innovative design. Since 2003 we apply an environmental guidance program to all our projects. We have also signed the Climate Pact of Stockholm.

Planning work and realized projects in England, the Netherlands, Spain, Poland and China have given us valuable knowledge and international experience. In dedication to our international work we have, for 20 years, been a member of Perspective, a network of 12 cooperating architectual practices from the same number of European countries that creating a joint staff 400 employees strong.

Our strong competence in graphic presentation and visual representation is of great help in all our work. Through our membership in Arkus and openBIM as well as other contributions we participate in research and development work.

Since 2010 Ahlqvist&Almqvist has been managed by Britt Almqvist supported by Samuel Raitio and Sven Söderlind. Bengt Ahlqvist is still and henceforth associated to the practise.
