Galmstrup Ltd. is a young design studio with vast experience of cultural and residential projects. Our starting point is to understand the essence of a client’s brief and analyse the context of a site which then drive our projects' narrative and strengthen their special qualities.
Our strengths are in the creative design process and the ability to drive complex projects forward often in large multi-disciplinary and multi-cultural teams. We do this through an open collaboration with our clients, collaborators and local stakeholders as well as craftsmen and builders to ensure the best solutions come to fruition on time and on budget.
