Nordic Built Challenge in Höfdabakki 9, Iceland by Jvantspijker

 
April 9th, 2013 by Sumit Singhal

The Nordic Built Challenge proposal consists of three distinct parts: site, building exterior and building interior. The proposal improves the quality and legibility of the site by emphasizing the connecting backbone of the site as a pedestrian friendly boulevard. The overall site green is enhanced, new canopies and zebra crossings improve the experience of the site for pedestrians in the harsh Icelandic weather.

By partially removing the vertical facade slabs a new, fresh and more communicative architecture can be realized. Horizontal sun shading in combination with planters reinforce new green image. A new typology has been fit into the outspoken curved shape of the building: a new wooden element housing all closed functions generates a counter-curve. It provides a variety of both open and closed working spaces in a singular simple gesture. Let the smart work begin.
