EFFEKT is a design studio based in Copenhagen, Denmark

EFFEKT with Arkitema is a part of the exhibition Mission Neighbourhood – (Re)forming communities with the project Growing a Neighbourhood.

In the Frederiksberg district in Copenhagen, Denmark, the relocation of healthcare functions prompted a chance to reimagine the 14 hectare hospital grounds. This winning proposal for the competition held in the summer of 2022 envisions a car-free neighbourhood based on a sensitive densification of the existing built fabric, where the existing nature is complemented by 3 hectare of new green area reclaimed from previously paved surfaces. The team, led by EFFEKT and Arkitema architects, demonstrates great creativity in ensuring ambitious diversity – in both nature and culture.

EFFEKT is a design studio based in Copenhagen, Denmark operating in the fields of architecture, urbanism and research. The company was established in 2007 and currently employ 60 full time staff under the creative direction of the two partners Tue Foged and Sinus Lynge.
