Kristoffer Tejlgaard (1979) is an architect educated at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in 2006. After several years of collaboration with partner Benny Jepsen, Kristoffer founded a studio in his own name, Atelier Kristoffer Tejlgaard - AKT, which he has been operating since Spring 2015. Atelier Kristoffer Tejlgaard is a small studio focused on functional and aesthetic architecture, based on honest and rational construction principles, fine craft details and the integration of light and nature. In an effort to challenge manufacturers and builders in the industry, AKT has progressively sought alternative sustainable solutions to architectural challenges. In recent years, the studio has played a leading role in the experimentation and development of minimal structural design based on the geodesic dome. AKT questions concepts such as permanent vs temporary architecture and always strives to design for disassembly – the aim to reuse the components of the buildings in new contexts. In addition to a close collaboration with clients, AKT also values a close collaboration with engineers, manufacturers, and craftsmen.
