C. F. Møller Architects

Arkitektfirmaet C. F. Møller, internationally also known as C. F. Møller Architects, is an architectural firm based in Århus, Denmark. Founded in 1924 by C. F. Møller, it is today the largest architectural firm in Denmark based on number of employed architects.[1] About half the revenue is earned outside Denmark.[2] Besides the main office in Århus, the firm has offices in Copenhagen, Oslo, London and in 2007 it bought the Stockholm-based Swedish architectural practice Berg Arkitekter which is still operated under its own name.[3]

Current projects include the largest hospital project ever to be built in Denmark in Århus,[4] an extension of the National Maritime Museum in London and several highrise projects in Norway, Sweden and Denmark. C. F. Møller is also one of the 15 architecture practices that collaborated in the overall design of the Olympic Village for the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.[5]
