Steensen Varming was founded by Niels Steensen and Jørgen Varming in Copenhagen – but the seeds of a global outlook were already sown when Jørgen and his architect father before him, studied in the U.K. Not long after the war ended, the Dublin office opened followed by Edinburgh and London – all preceded by prestigious commissions with competition-winning architects. The Sydney Opera House commission with Jørn Utzon continued this pattern and the Sydney practice opened in 1973. Hong Kong and New York followed in our eightieth year.
we are built on firm foundations
We strive for technical perfection. We are driven to enable the best building design where functionality and wellbeing are paramount. We demand at least as much from ourselves as our clients and collaborators have come to expect.
We grew up with the Danish design approach to refinement and longevity in our formative years. Since our foundation, in 1933, we have attracted and employed gifted people with a shared ethos and commitment to optimal design solutions. We focus on offering a portfolio of specialist services and high levels of expertise, deliberately maintaining a scale of operation that does not outgrow our talent pool. We continue to innovate to meet and exceed the needs of the most challenging projects, to consistently deliver positive outcomes.
But it’s not all about us. Our reputation, as one of the most respected and awarded building services consultancies, is built on the foundations of inspirational architects, brave clients – and our way of thinking.
