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.

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.

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.
