Since 2002, Lars has been partner and part of the management of Henning Larsen Architects. He is responsible for the company’s projects related to healthcare and research. Through many years of experience with preliminary analyses and realization of large hospital- and research projects a profound knowledge of complex circumstances, that characterize these projects, has been achieved.

In addition the ability to combine sincere attention to aesthetics and architectural design, structure, daylight, materials and details with highly complex technical solutions has been developed.

In addition to healthcare projects, Lars has extensive experience with masterplans, cultural and educational projects. He has been responsible for developing numerous winning designs as well as concept design, detailed design and completion of selected projects.

Professional experience in general and the ability to seek and apply new architectural learnings has made Lars a popular educator and professional jury member for architectural competitions.
