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!

In Gothenburg, there has been an architectural competition about a building addition to the University of Economics. Above, You may see the 6 finalists which are designed by:

– Yellon + Kim Utzon Arkitekter + WSP + Atkins, Sverige/Danmark

– Johan Celsing Arkitektkontor, Sverige

– Lundgaard & Tranberg Arkitekter, Danmark

– XDGA + Contekton + Integra engineering + Andersson & Hultmark, Belgien/Sverige

– Nieto Sobejano Arquitectos, Tyskland /Spanien

My favorite is nr 5, Annex, because of the clean, simple facade, which also connect and respond to the existing building, but with a modern touch. It also respects the existing building and let them both stand as equal solitaires, with a corresponding scale and aesthetic.

Is it New York? But no, it´s café Magasinet, Gothenburg Sweden

Newly opened Café Magasinet got a fantastic start, it opened october 24th and has already become a popular place to go for a beer, coffee or food.

I like the rustic environment with industrial feeling , no polish, nothing fancy but so, so right. Got to go there on my next visit in Gothenburg..
