Thylander strengthens its creative competencies and capacity as architect Mikkel Westfall joins as partner and creative director

On August 1st 2021, Thylander will expand its circle of partners with architect Mikkel Westfall, who has been the driving force in Årstiderne Arkitekter and Sweco Architects for the past 20 years.

Mikkel Westfall is a recognized name in the real estate and architectural industry in Denmark and has influenced the development of Copenhagen with significant projects, such as “Postgården”, “Irma-karréen”, “Grønttorvet in Valby” as well as other successful projects in Denmark and abroad.

“For many years I have admired Mikkel for his unique ability to combine the creative and aesthetic with the business in real estate development. He will be a huge benefit for our future projects, and I am delighted that he will be part of the team,” says Lars Thylander, partner and chairman of the board at Thylander.

Mikkel Westfall is looking forward to his new role at Thylander:

“My passion is architecture, which creates lasting value for the city, users and owners. Therefore, I am very much looking forward to my new role at Thylander, where I can combine my experience as an architect with the role of a builder. It gives me the opportunity to realize my professional ambitions and influence the architecture, the sustainable urban development as well as ensuring both the aesthetics and the cultural heritage in our projects. I have a belief that this can be done with Thylander in particular, who for decades has been known for elegantly developing older properties and giving them a new life.”

Mikkel Westfall will be responsible for the professional and creative analysis in both new and existing projects. He will drive idea generation and development of new concepts, including, for example, new forms of living and working together. In addition, he will contribute to new development and investment themes.

Kristian Krogh, Managing Partner at Thylander, is pleased that a capacity like Mikkel Westfall has joined Thylander in order to strengthen the company’s creative profile:

“It is deep in our DNA to utilize the soul and character of the old properties, which is one of the most sustainable things there is. Mikkel will significantly strengthen our competencies and capacity to develop existing and new properties, while maintaining financial sustainability in our projects, for the benefit of our investors.”

The partner group in Thylander will from August 1st consist of Lars Thylander, Kristian Krogh, Henrik Køhn and Mikkel Westfall.

Mikkel Westfall also joins the board of directors of the developer company Sophienberg Gruppen A/S, which is partly owned by Thylander.
