Johan Arrhov

Johan Arrhov (1979) and Henrik Frick (1977) received their master’s in architecture from KTH Royal Institute of Technology in 2007. Together they established Arrhov Frick in 2010 in Stockholm, Sweden. Carlos Nieto (1977) became a partner in 2017. Working with a diversity of projects, the ambition is to create architecture that makes life better for the people. We believe architecture should be simple to construct and easy to maintain. It should be understandable and complex. A building should be pleasant to live in and to discover. The architecture is often reduced to its fundamentals, emphasizing ideological and programmatic simplicity through a focus on function, structural economy and construction logic. Many of the projects support flexible infrastructures that are capable of future iterations and uses, encouraging sustainability and longevity in the building industry. The office has a collective competence with experience in all phases of the building process – from concept to finished building – including BIM-management on a larger scale. In 2018 they became the elected ‘Architect of the Year’ by Residence magazine and in the same year a monographic issue was published about Arrhov Frick by 2G International Architectural Magazine – the first Nordic architectural office. The office has been nominated for European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Award 2019. Arrhov Frick frequently lectures and teaches throughout the world and their work is widely published and exhibited internationally.
