Galmstrup Ltd. is a young design studio with profound
experience in Cultural and Community projects.
Galmstrup Ltd. is a young design studio with vast experience of cultural and residential projects. Our starting point is to understand the essence of a client’s brief and analyse the context of a site which then drive our projects' narrative and strengthen their special qualities.
We value daylight and its interaction with space and materials specific to a region, function and culture, and let it craft the atmosphere of the places we create. We deliver playful yet pragmatic innovative designs which encourage social interaction and create a sense of belonging for the user.
Our strengths are in the creative design process and the ability to drive complex projects forward often in large multi-disciplinary and multi-cultural teams. We do this through an open collaboration with our clients, collaborators and local stakeholders as well as craftsmen and builders to ensure the best solutions come to fruition on time and on budget.
ARCHIGRAM'S PRICE FOR CHEERFULNESS:
“Utterly fearless and always inventive, Anne Marie’s work flows from the half-crazy, the attenuated, to the suddenly precise and concentrated. It is full of surprises and (one suspects) private jokes, more than a fair share of virtuoso moments and some beautiful graphic compilations.”
ANNE MARIE GALMSTRUP
Anne Marie has a long track record of designing and delivering cultural and community projects internationally. She is known for her original concepts and clear understanding of client’s wishes and needs, which is manifested in innovative designs with strong narratives.

At HLA, she was in charge of cultural projects with a larger civic social aspect and where user involvement was essential to bring the projects from concept to implementation such as The Massar Children’s Discovery Centre and BIO Istanbul Residences. She further established and was Managing Director of HLAs offices in Levant and Istanbul.
