We have always been ‘Looking Forward’ at Steensen Varming, pushing our projects and ourselves to do, and be, better. The integrity of what we do has always been more important than what we say.
Our focus on doing what is right, over what is easy, has led us to the cusp of a century’s worth of industry-defining work and collaboration. All of our projects benefit from our commitments and values in different ways, whether decarbonization, regenerative design, First Nations influence, eco over egocentric, post pandemic wellbeing, quality over quantity, purpose over profit, resilience and re-use/ future-fit over waste and vanity.
We have further aligned our expertise and purpose, to test ourselves to arguably the toughest and most transparent criteria in the ESG world, by being certified as a B Corporation, as we use our business as a force for good.
At a community level, we focus on contributing to those around us as what our studios specifically care about; this year in our London Studio we are humbled by and have chosen to support Little Village and HomeLess Made.
We wish to thank artist Guan Chow, for the artwork accompanying this greeting. Guan Chow, an immigrant to the UK who, in battling with personal tragedies and mental health, became homeless but managed to find himself with the help of art. “The Tree of Life” artwork represents color returning to life after experiencing poverty and homelessness and is meant to inspire the same in others.
The Steensen Varming teams in Copenhagen, London, Sydney, Canberra, Hong Kong and New York wish all our friends, clients and collaborators a happy holiday season and we look forward to continuing good work in the New Year.
