Kragh Berglund’s overall goal is to create imaginative cities and landscapes where flora, fauna, environment and people can coexist. We strive for continuous development of the business with the goal of becoming a leading company in sustainable landscape architecture, planning and urban design.
– In order to move towards more structured business development and growth, we are now expanding the previous partner boards with external professional board members, says Hans Kragh, CEO Kragh Berglund.
This is being done in order to develop and make both the Danish and Swedish studios visible, separately and together, on the Scandinavian market. This is one of several initiatives that will contribute to structured business development and growth for Kragh Berglund.

The purpose of the boards
Together with the day-to-day management, the boards of directors will develop the company so that Kragh Berglund both maintains and renews its position in the Scandinavian market as a courageous, responsible, and sustainable architectural firm, with a market strategy that both studios support.
The two studios in Denmark and Sweden will support any further development with their established professional competency and financial security, leading to growth and a new, innovative approach to our design, profession, and industry. The development is supported by almost 20 years of expertise and a portfolio with numerous high-quality projects in and outside Scandinavia.
