Our architecture pursues the bespoke and unique, combined with a sensitive approach to the surrounding environment. The buildings we design are one of a kind and always built to last.

Our work moves freely between small buildings,  furniture, landscapes, cultural projects, and tourist destinations.

Throughout the design process, we keep a close dialogue with our clients and take pride in tailoring our projects to the people and places we work with. Every client is different; every place is peculiar and unique. We aim to embrace this in all of our projects.

Vardehaugen was established in 2015 by Håkon Matre Aasarød. The studio is authorized by The National Directorate for Building Quality (DIBK) and is a member of The National Federation for Norwegian Architects (MNAL).
