Marc Goodwin photographs 27 Nordic architecture offices

Architecture photographer Marc Goodwin has captured the working environments of Nordic architecture offices including Henning LarsenSnøhetta and Tham & Videgård Arkitekter.

Goodwin, who runs the photography studio Archmospheres, captured a variety of working environments including one inside a converted flour mill, another in an 1930s department store and one inside a camera shop.

The layouts vary, ranging from a narrow studio space that accommodates just a few architects, to a multistorey office for hundreds of workers.

Danish studio Henning Larsen, which occupies a department store built in 1930s, features alongside 3XN, which works out of a former boat store in Copenhagen.

The offices of other well-known firms including CF Møller, Snøhetta and Tham & Videgård Arkitekter are also included in the selection as well as lesser-known studios.

The seven employees of Jägnefält Milton work within an old stable surrounded by exposed brick and weathered wooden columns.

Swedish firm White Arkitekter's offices – one of the only purpose-built spaces on the list – wrap around a central void.

The images form part of a series of photosets by Goodwin documenting the studios of architects. He previously visited the workplaces of London architects, and is planning his next series on Paris.
