WHATSOP / Open Platform

always op the game

Open Platform is a Copenhagen-based practice founded by Jennifer Dahm Petersen and Niels Lund Petersen. We use the power of ideas to develop meaningful design, architecture and urban environments. In a world of endless possibilities and climate challenges, we always strive to minimize the human imprint on nature and maximize the positive impact on human life.

OP's core team consists of eleven dedicated individuals with a wide variety of skills ranging from all facets of architecture, through communication, to strategies for developing society as a whole. On average, team members and founders have worked together for 10+ years, which means a high degree of autonomy. Team diversity includes variation in age, gender, nationality, political preferences and personal values. All united in a good team spirit and common goals.


think hard. work hard. die hard.
