“Now I can confidently put my 45 years of work experience to good use.”
Olle is CEO, owner and founder of the company, but first and foremost a great source of ideas and experience for customers as well as colleagues. Olle sees the long-term development of the company and is driven by evolving the architectural knowledge.
He creates with curiosity and bravery thanks to all his earlier experience, and he quickly sees solutions and can sort out ideas that will not hold in the long run. The confidence comes from years of trying out ideas for various needs, both practically and architecturally. This also makes it easier to assess new ideas that no one has seen before. “It is such a joy to enthuse the clients based on experience, creative ideas and solutions.”
“We feel better if we get to live in a beautiful home – everybody should have the opportunity to do so.”
Fredrik has been interested in houses and homes since a young age, he started here in 2019 and earlier worked with city planning and offices. Our many residential projects here at Rex fits Fredrik’s creative side and eye for details well. He is driven to create beautiful solutions in harmony with the surroundings for customers.
It is apparent that Frederik is patient and accurate in the way he carefully works with details even in early phases of a project, in the form of building permits and 3D-sketches. “3D is an important tool to make the client understand the feeling and atmosphere, as well as function and smart solutions.”
”It’s exciting to work with projects where new meets old, and we have many projects of that kind.”
Elin started here in 2019, she studied the first three years of the education in Umeå where the school is more focused on the creative side of architecture. That might be the reason why Elin likes the early, creative project phases, to sketch and solve problems. She is curious, wants to learn a lot and try out new things.
During her master studies in Stockholm Elin chose the direction towards sustainability in the building process. She is devoted to sustainable materials, to restore and make use of the existing, and has previous experience from residential project, renovations and extensions. “It is all about finding solutions where sustainable ideas and regulation for renovation and construction can go hand in hand.”
“Genuine crafts and high level of detail must be highly valued”
For as long as she can remember, Carolin has been interested in buildings, interior design and how different environments affect its surroundings. Originally the interest comes from the family's boatyard; an eye for detail has always been highly valued. The historical interest was an important reason why Carolin during her studies chose a specialization that focused on culturally sensitive places, reconstruction and restoration. In addition, there is a great curiosity and desire to find the best solution - the combination of these qualities has made her a problem-solving, committed and thoroughly working architect. Carolin appreciates the versatility of the profession and finds it exciting to follow the unique development of each project. "The progress of a project takes place step by step and in close consultation with the customer, it is a privilege to be able to follow that development from the first ideas to the finished result."
”Architecture form traces of life – both lives from the past and the life we desire right now.”
Growing up with a grandfather who was both a carpenter and an artist, Linnea spent her childhood summers in the countryside atelier carving wood. Her grandfather mostly worked with motives relating to the analogue, agricultural life of past centuries. She has always found herself fascinated with objects and the stories they tell. As an architect, her passion is to weave past and future form into one continuous story. You can often find her studying materials up close - natural wood grains, nuances of stone or something hand-carved. She believes that minute details lie at the core of a strong architectural concept and often designs with an overall atmosphere in mind. During her studies, her focus was historical architecture and transformation. She has previously worked at a small studio where she did interiors, concepts and furniture design. ”Old details embody a certain tenderness. Part of it lies in the craftmanship, but there is also tenderness in the care placed to uphold it. Care itself casts an object in a new light.”
"It's fun to be given a creative challenge that leads to clever solutions"
Cornelia started in the office in 2022. She studied at the School of Architecture in Lund and also did an exchange at the École Nationale Supérieure d'Architecture de Paris-La Villette during her master's degree. In Paris, she worked with scenography and creating unique and inspiring environments. She is passionate about housing projects and finding smart solutions for apartment buildings, villa projects and smaller additions. Cornelia also has a background in graphic design, which she has brought into architecture where color, form and grids often is given a central place in the design. A specialty of Cornelia is to put different components together to create the best option, tailored to the specific needs of the project - whether it is a residential plan, a small detail or a facade composition.
"Switching between the large scale and the small is important for the project to fall nicely into place"
“Architecture starts when you carefully put two bricks together”
–Ludwig Mies van der Rohe
