Julien De Smedt is the founder and director of JDS Architects based in Copenhagen, with offices in Brussels and Oslo. JDS is a multidisciplinary office that focuses on architecture and design, from large scale planning to furnitures.
Rich of multiple expertises the office is fueled by talented designers and experienced architects that jointly develop projects from early sketches to on-site supervision. All of which, independently of scale outlines an approach that is affirmatively social in its outcome, enthusiastic in its ambition and professional in its process. At the core of our architecture is the ability to take a fresh look at things through experienced eyes.

By continuously developing rigorous methods of analysis and execution, JDS is able to combine innovative thinking and efficient production.
