Jessheim Hage – a-lab and Solon Eiendom

Recently I stumbled upon a picture of these interesting houses. I like the coloring of the wooden facade-panel and the difference between each module. You can see they belong together but they still have their own identity, quite like a little family.

reThink Wood

Wish I was able to attend this highly interesting event about taller wood buildings. So many benefits in comparison to the traditional steel and concrete-structure. But just give it time, I bet it will be more common in the future.

DnB NOR Headquarters by A-Lab

 

Well hello there, I´m back:) ! I’ve had a little pause but now I’m back on track again and feeling eager to blog. So, recently I went to Oslo and saw an interesting project, the DnB Headquarters by A-lab. While there I just saw the front and not all the volume from the side, and even if it´s interesting as a volume ,the front facade with the lower height fascinated me. I´m all in for a clean, simple, elegant facade, and the front facade is just that, but with a little twist with the smaller windows that founds their place in the rhythm but gives the facade more character.

The Hemnet Home – Tham & Videgård Arkitekter

The Hemnet Home designed by Tham & Videgård Arkitekter is the result from 200 million clicks and 86 000 properties om Hemnet (a popular property site in Sweden). The exterior is a mix between the Swedish traditional red wooden cottage and the functionalist box. The interior have qualities such as a rational and clean floor plan, kitchen with double room height and a visual contact between the upper and lower level from the top of the stair.

I think it´s an interesting project and Hemnet is going to build an interpretation of the Swedish dream house, hopefully during 2016.

Hospital in Esbjerg – Arkitema Architects

A new hospital in Esbjerg designed by Arkitema Architects. I like the exterior shutters which makes a nice, warm contrast to the glass and the white facade. I also like all the interior wood which creates a warm and caring atmosphere, just what´s needed in a hospital.

Octopharma – Joliark and White

One of the few industries left in Stockholm city, the medical producer Octopharma, is expanding into a nearby old Brewery-building.

The old brewery tradition in old copper kettles has been an inspiration for the use of copper in the interior design, and such a link between the buildings history and its future is very sympathetic to me. And I like the combination of the traditional nordic materials, copper, limestone and pine flooring in combination with the white and dark turqoise colors, which gives it a light, nordic character with a twist.
