This years Kasper Sahlin-price goes too……

A very nice project made by the quite young office Elding Oscarsson, it’s Skissernas Museum (Museum of Artistic Process and Public Art) in Lund. I like how the new wooden construction with corten facade, relates to the existing buildings and the surrounding greenery.

Copenhagen international school – C.F. MØLLER

.

Right on the dock in Copenhagen, in the new area Nordhavn, the new Copenhagen international school is placed. On one side of the dock it’s still functioning as a harbour, on the other side of the dock, new housingprojects are under development.

What I find interesting with this building is first and foremost the facade. The building is covered with solarpanels that will supply the school with at least half of the buildings yearly consumtion of electricity. And beside that, the solarpanels shift in color depending on the weather, so it has a colorrange from turqouis to purple depending on weather and sunlight.

I really like the environment-friendly function in the building, which for me signals both an architect and a developer and a client that takes responsibility for the planet we all live on.

Going to Copenhagen this summer? Then I can recommend to take a boattrip and experience Copenhagen from the seaside.

In the neighbourhood of Christianshavn, near the famous restaurant Noma, is a new housing-project completed in 2016.

The architects, COBE, has designed three new buildings with folded roofs and a new, modern interpretation of the old industrial warehouses represented in the neighbourhood.

Interesting project that makes a stand with it’s own modern identity, but still harmonizes with it’s scale and expression with it’s surroundings.

New housing project at Bygdøynesveien 15 in Oslo, Norway – Reiulf Ramstad Architects

Another nice project from Reiulf Ramstad Architects located at Bygdøynesveien 15, Oslo, Norway. The project is part of a new residental area combining historic buildings from early 1900´s and new, modern housing.

The new buildings will offer apartments and the area is designed to be an eco-friendly residential environment with high architectural qualities.

I like the light grey brick facade and the scale of the buildings. The wooden doors adds a bit of warmth, and the relief that makes the light from the interior shine through is another nice touch.

Johannes Norlander, winner of the Kasper Salin-price 2016

Another nice project made by Johannes Norlander in Gothenburg, Sweden. He won the Kasper Salin-prize in 2016 for this project. I like the very repetetive facade and the simplicity in the materials, no fuss, straight, simple and elegant. Well done!

TUVVÄGEN – SCOTT RASMUSSON KÄLLANDER

But hello there, here is a very interesting project in Handen, a suburb south of Stockholm. It´s a building for geriatric care and has 54 apartements.

It´s very interesting with the concrete base in two stories, in contrast to the lighter wooden structure above in three stories. The building is u-shaped, surrounding a rock in the backyard, and the rock seems to be the object that created the form of the building. The pillars and the concrete base makes it possible to spare the rock as much as possible, which I think is a very nice touch in respect to the environment. I also like that it´s height and volume is in sync with the neighborhood, but it has a very different and modern character which makes it stand out in a positive way.

The office behind this interesting project is a quite new one, but very interesting indeed. They have many interesting projects on their website and I think we will see a whole lot of them in the future.
