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

3

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.

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.

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.

Architects: Joliark

The seven winning teams in the competition Oceanhamnen – Helsingborgs stad

The competition Oceanhamnen in Helsingborg, Sweden, is now completed and the 7 winning teams are announced. Oceanhamnen is an area with spectacular view over the ocean and is just around the corner from the central station Knutpunkten. The area is to be characterized by the themes; talent, tolerance, time, technology and “not adjusted”. The participants were asked to interpret the words in their projects in order to think new and as a new way of working.

The seven winning teams are:

– Sundprojekt AB med White Arkitekter AB Malmö

– Tage & Söner Förvaltnings AB med Liljewall Arkitekter AB

– Midroc Property Development med Kamikaze Arkitekter

– Riksbyggen med Kjellgren Kaminsky Architecture AB

– Magnolia Bostad AB med Link Arkitektur AB och Batteríið Architects Ltd

– K-fastigheter och Fastighets AB Balder med Kanozi Arkitekter AB

– Serneke Projektstyrning AB med Arkitektlaget och Jais Arkitekter

Personally, I like Tage & Söner Förvaltnings AB/Liljewall Arkitekter AB and Magnolia Bostad AB/Link Arkitektur AB/Batteriio Architects Ltd projects the best. In my opinion, they seem more coherent and calm, even if the facades are made of varying elements.
