19th January 2024

As of 1 January, Mette Lyng Hansen has been appointed as the new Head of Light Buerau, part of AFRY. Currently CEO of Gottlieb Paludan Architects, Hansen will continue to work across both practices.

“I am very pleased to be able to present the important and broadened responsibility for Mette. Her proven skills and competence will ensure the future business of AFRY Architecture & Design, both within Gottlieb Paludan Architects, as well as Light Bureau,” said Helena Paulsson, VP and Head of Business Area Architecture & Design at AFRY.

Light Bureau, established in the UK more than 25 years ago, is an independent full-service lighting design agency consisting of multi-disciplinary lighting experts. With numerous, global awards and award-winning projects, Light Bureau has received international recognition, with offices in the UK, Denmark, Sweden, and Norway.

Mette Lyng Hansen added: “To shine the light on society has always been a big part of my life, even privately. Family members have worked professionally in the industry for multiple years, which has provided me with both understanding, insight and dynamics of light. And after many years in the architectural industry, I can vouch for the fact that the design of daylight and architectural lighting plays an integrated role in creating coherent spatial experiences.”
