HAO / Holm Architecture Office is an international design collective founded in 2010 by Danish architect Jens Holm.
HAO focuses on creating strong working collaborations with clients and designers through an open and inclusive design process. We believe that collaboration on all levels of the design process leads to exciting ideas and strong projects.
HAO is a multidisciplinary office that works collaboratively with an array of professional fields, allowing us to examine new ways of thinking and implementing design. We believe in the mix, both in our work and in the people we collaborate with.
HAO is currently working in the US, China and Europe on projects ranging in scale from art installations to city planning. HAO recently won the competition to design the Samaranch Memorial Museum in Tianjin, the Qingdao Master Plan in Qingdao and the competition to re-design the Coleman Oval Park and Skate Park in Manhattan, New York.
Prior to founding HAO, Jens worked for several years as a lead architect with Rem Koolhaas and OMA / Office for Metropolitan Architecture in OMA’s Rotterdam and New York offices and with Rockwell Group Architecture, Planning and Design in New York.
