About us

How can urban planning and real estate development contribute to communal life? How do we create spaces that enhance our wellbeing? Can work life balance be built into walls?

These are just some of the questions that drive us at SquareMeter. Our vision is to enhance the dialogue within real estate development. We believe that a sense of wellbeing and pro-active community building should be at the core of our projects. Because we want to look at communal living from every angle, our team is one of the most diverse and creative in real estate development today. We want to create properties and neighbourhoods with you as a co-resident, co-worker, co-developer and co-investor.

Get to know us

The desire to make a difference is a powerful catalyst for change. Our vision is for Square Meter to contribute to positive change. Building on a career in finance and real estate in the UK and Denmark, I aspire to use my experience to create better and more coherent and inclusive spaces. Spaces and buildings, which encourage a sense of community and are positive drivers in the local environment. I started my career with the principal trading desk at Goldman Sachs in London  and subsequently held similar roles at Nomura, Merrill Lynch and Danish pension fund ATP. I co-founded Square Meter with Morten Wismann in 2017.

Square Meter is different. We are passionate about making a positive impact on people’s lives by creating the right kind of space for community through activities, mutual trust and shared responsibility. Since I started my career in real estate 20 years ago, this is what I’ve been working towards. I have been actively involved with real estate development since 1995. During this time, I have developed a diverse and innovative range of more than 400 residential homes throughout Denmark in partnership with Danish pension funds and family offices. In 2017 I co-founded Square Meter with Lars Jensen.

Valuing personal service is a way of demonstrating that you care. This is at the very core of our mission at Square Meter. We care about well-being. We care about fostering community and designing space for individuals to prosper and grow. These are our main messages to tenants, partners, stakeholders, neighbours and investors. I have worked in service all my life, mainly in the hospitality industry. Prior to joining Square Meter, I held the post General Manager of the Royal Hotel in Copenhagen, the post of General Manager at Sølyst and subsequently managed the luxury brand Nimb Hotel, Events and restaurants in Tivoli.

I was initially attracted to Square Meter because of the people who work here. It is incredibly motivating to work with people driven by passion and with the mission of investing and creating sustainable communities. Also, I believe that the way we look at service is innovative and refreshing for this business. Prior to joining Square Meter, I took part in a rotation program at Nimb, Tivoli, allowing me to gain a thorough knowledge of the company and how the different entities work together. I have a solid academic foundation from Copenhagen Business School, where I specialized in languages, cultures and service management.

A building is just a frame. It’s what you put in the building that matters. People with different interests and skills. Rooms designed for conversation. Interior architecture that makes you feel like you belong. Square Meter Design is aiming to develop real estate that contributes to social change. I have always had a passion for craftmanship, and I love design that has a purpose beyond being beautiful. I have held and am holding Creative Director positions in companies such as FALKE, Saga Furs and Royal Copenhagen.

I believe in good relationships and good communication among people. At The Mark residents and staff are creating a community together. My greatest task is to make the residents at The Mark feel welcome and part of a community that embraces diversity in relation to personalities, backgrounds and interests. Creating events of all sorts and connecting people are my favorite tasks. Any challenge a resident must have is a challenge to be solved. Maybe I can’t solve all of them myself, but by creating a community at The Mark, I promise the solution will be found.

Working in a small but growing firm like Square Meter gives me the opportunity to put my own touch on things. I get to apply what I have learned from my classes in economics and get a feel of how it works in the real world. I have been given great responsibility and inspiring work involving sustainability and investment projects. I strive to give back to the team as well as I feel that my employers have my development in mind.

Working at Square Meter as a law-student assistant is both challenging and inspiring. I can be an active part of a growing project, where the journey brings exciting challenges to everyone involved. Since day one I have felt like an important part of the team as I have been given great responsibility in the projects I am working on. At work I know that my job is important and that we rely on each other. That is what inspires me and what I enjoy most about Square Meter.

The responsibility to solve the challenges that arise at The Mark for the residents and in the day-to-day operations, makes my work amazing. I am service minded, and I always want to help where I can make a difference. Personal relationships are very important to me and it is great to have daily contact with the residents at The Mark. Being part of the Square Meter family, allows me to have insight into all aspects of the business and the continuing improvements, both in relation to the construction of buildings, but also to the social initiatives that make our “community” the best.

At Square Meter we are passionate about creating healthy communities and raise overall wellbeing. We work hard to be at the forefront of meeting the needs and wishes of our tenants and create sustainable property infrastructure that makes people thrive. Before joining Square Meter I have extensive project management experience primarily in NGOs. My professional scope comprises strategic communication and implementation, consumer reach and stakeholder relations. Much of my focus has been establishing collaborations and building networks of volunteers in civil society.

My passion is to process impressions and create images that communicate a special mood or atmosphere. Therefore, I am always curious and love to observe people and my surroundings. At Square Meter I find it inspiring to be part of a team of passionate and talented people who all share the same values. Together we use architecture, design, art and photography as a catalyst for positive, social change. Currently I also work for Nimb, Tivoli and Sølyst.

I strongly believe in theory put into practice and a strategic focus on what Square Meter can offer today that the market wants tomorrow. As equity partner in Square Meter I’m highly motivated about creating positive and sustainable change in the area of property development. I am especially passionate about making sure Square Meter at all times embrace the latest technological development within prop.tech and IoT as the enabler to reach the overall goals of social and environmental sustainability in our value-based communities.

As an Architectural Technologist and Construction Management student, I am fortunate to be part of a a passionate and motivated team at Square Meter. I enjoy being involved in the design process in relation to the construction projects. It complements my study, in which I am learning to adopt sustainable construction methods from concept phase to completion, using the latest technology in building information modeling. I am excited to use my theoretical knowledge and apply it to industry practice. Personally, I have a strong interest in architecture, mathematics, drawing and design with an excellent eye for detail.

Communities, people and stories are at the core of everything we do at Square Meter. That’s why communicating experiences is so important. I am passionate about creating social environments that extend beyond buildings and transform spaces that will better our well-being. I work with visual communication, both photography and videography with an academic background within Comparative Literature and International Business Communication. Daily I tell the stories of our communities and highlight our shared activities towards creating spaces that foster human connection, mutual trust and social value.

I was attracted to Square Meter due to the different approach to the real estate market. It is incredible what can happen when you put people’s minds together to create value for stakeholders, the local community as well as the environment.

Before joining Square Meter, I have experience as project manager at COWI and Tivoli. I have a solid academic background from Copenhagen Business School and Aalborg University where I specialized in applied economics, construction management and informatics mainly focusing on management and the use of modern technology in construction.
