  • Practice

  • Dyvik Kahlen Architects is a London based office established in 2010 by Christopher Dyvik and Max Kahlen operating across various scales and sectors in the UK, Holland, Germany and Norway, collaborating with clients ranging from public institutions and developers to artists, curators and private individuals.

    Underlying our work is a desire for objects and spaces that are comfortable and strangely familiar, as much as a fascination for rational and neutral form. Our aspiration is to create good spaces that improve the quality of life of those who inhabit them, be it through a piece of furniture, a building or an urban plan.

    We were recently featured in the Architecture Foundation’s ‘New Architecture 3’, a survey of the best emerging architects in the UK, selected by a jury of leading architects, critics and curators.

    Recently finished projects are a building for a sailing boat harbour in Holland, the exhibition ‘Engineering the World: Ove Arup and the Philosophy of Total Design’ at the Victoria and Albert Museum, and ‘Magnificent Collections: The Artist as Collector’ at the Barbican Art Gallery.

    Projects currently in development are a masterplan and collection of 6 residential buildings in Holland, a Nursery and Community Centre in London, and an exhibition at the Royal Academy.
