“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.”
“It is great to work in such a close relation to the customers, and to the buildings.”
Johanna is fond of solving problems and working in a creative way. She started in 2017 but had already been here for an internship year in 2014. Her clear strength is houses, both new construction and extensions, and she is used to all parts of the building process; sketches, project planning, building permits, construction documents…
It might sound cliché to say “we work close to our customers”, but we really do it here. Johanna has weekly follow-up meetings with customers about details and solutions, and sometimes the clients come to the office and sit next to Johanna’s desk and discuss the project in front of the computer screen. “It is important to get to know the client and understand what they are searching for. We don´t do standard solutions.”
“Not leaving anything to chance gives reliability to projects.”
Many years’ experience as a building engineer has made Sanne accustomed to project planning, and fond of working in a structured and organized way. Sanne likes to go to the bottom with difficult questions, make detailed drawings and she leaves nothing to chance. This is a great assurance for our customers.
One strength is Sannes expertise in 3D-modeling and BIM (Building Information Modeling). It gives the project the important combination of visualising the creativity from a handmade sketch as well as creating a platform for collaboration and communication within the project. Sanne started working here in 2017.
“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.”
“I think good architecture affects our lives.”
Five years ago, Aghyad came to Sweden as an educated architect, with experience from Turkey and Lebanon as well. He started working with us in 2019 and has a wide experience of drawing houses, restaurants, renovations and much more. He wants to create architecture that affects our emotions, consciousness and lives.
A focus for Aghyad is visualisation; to create images that makes the clients understand what the final project will look like. “I enjoy realising a dream vision for clients, through images, drawings and finally as a finished building.”
“Architecture starts when you carefully put two bricks together”
