TYIN tegnestue Architects consists of Yashar Hanstad and Andreas Grøntvedt Gjertsen. The office formed during 2008, while the duo were studying architecture at the university of Trondheim – NTNU. A search for professional meaning would lead the office to the far corners of the world.

The young office completed a series of global projects, from the Thai-Burmese border to the forests of Sumatra. In later years TYIN have focused on projects on their native soil of Norway, while also giving lectures at universities around the world and working as teachers at NTNU.

TYIN emphasize a fluid and open process. An architecture of pragmatism, where design and construction go hand in hand. Simplicity in details and an architecture that allows for user influence is a core value of the office, as well as the architect’s involvement through the entirety of the construction process.
