At Troldtekt we continually bring focus to topical trends within the fields of acoustics, indoor climate, architecture and sustainable building.
This page contains an overview of the various themes that we have published. Here, you can learn about e.g. acoustics in restaurants and innovation in architecture through inspiring articles, photos and interviews with architects and leading researchers.
Architecture in the big cities
This Troldtekt theme page takes you on a virtual trip to look at architecture in Copenhagen, and in Denmark’s second-largest city Aarhus. Enjoy the tour!
Sustainability in the built environment
In this feature, you can read about trends and milestones within documented sustainable building. Get an overview of all the building certifications that have been emerging in recent years – for the benefit of users, owners and the environment. You can also read how Troldtekt contributes positively to the various schemes.
Inspiration for private homes
We spend most of our time in our homes – sometimes perhaps even many of our working hours. This is where we spend time together with our nearest and dearest. This is where we recharge our batteries, where our children grow up, and where we live our lives.
Office building design
More working-from-home days and online meetings have become the new normal. The corona pandemic and the need for better access to digital forms of collaboration mean new requirements for the design of the physical office. It has, for example, resulted in a need for more small meeting rooms and break-out zones than in the past.
Architecture for seniors
Demographics are moving towards a greater proportion of elderly people in the population. This calls for more flexible, high-quality architecture.
Healthy schools of the future
Schoolchildren are our future. There is therefore every reason to ensure that they have the best possible facilities in which to develop and learn. However, every day the school bell rings at far too many run-down schools where a poor indoor climate is the norm. Problems with inferior air quality result in increased sickness absence and poor learning curves.
Did you know that noise and music have a bearing on our sense of taste? And that poor acoustics can cost a star in restaurant reviews? You can read more about this in this theme page.
Architecture, design & materials can have an impact on the treatment of body and mind. Light, air and acoustics all play a role. Read about healing architecture
Swimming pools and outdoor baths
Swimming and water exercise are popular activities among all ages and at all skill levels – and many old centres are being renovated and new ones built. On this theme page, Troldtekt A/S brings together knowledge, trends and examples that can help guide the design of swimming facilities of the future.
Design and Innovation in Architecture
Innovation must ensure that architecture is constantly evolving – functionally and aesthetically. Most people spend 80-90 per cent of their time indoors, and when function and design complement one another, it can make a big difference to people’s daily lives and well-being.
Building health and indoor climate
On this Troldtekt theme page, experts present their views on material health and indoor climate – and possible solutions to the challenges.
Architecture for sports and movement
Schools designed for movement. Indoor space with parkour and street football. A sports complex where elite sports and rehabilitation are brought together under one roof. Sport and movement can take place in many forms and facilities. Here, it is important that the architecture is designed for physical activity and noise – but still with a sense of aesthetics.
Wood in construction
Wood is a healthy, elegant and flexible natural material that makes a positive contribution to the carbon accounts. More about wood as a building material here!
Build better childcare institutions
The number of children is on the rise in several northern European countries, and thus also the need for new childcare institutions. It is important to take the children’s perspective in the design of the new institutions, and for the architecture to support the development of mind and body. On this theme page, Troldtekt A/S focuses on how to build better childcare institutions.
Black is the new black. On this Troldtekt theme page, you can read how black ceilings and solid materials are becoming increasingly popular in interior design.
Multi purpose cultural centres
Many new multi-purpose cultural centres have seen the light of day in recent years. In large towns and villages, the buildings serve as informal meeting places, bringing together local communities for activities ranging from sport and meals to salsa and yoga. This theme page gives you an insight into what the experts think about the new multi-purpose cultural centres.
Around 40% of Europe’s material and energy consumption goes to construction. Using healthy, lasting materials and converting buildings for new purposes offers the potential for better resource utilisation. On this theme page you can read about the reuse of materials at the highest possible value level, learn about two key concepts in sustainable building: life cycle costs and life cycle assessment and find inspiration in examples of successful transformation projects.
