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.

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.

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.
