Casa Hamar in Hedmark county, Norway by Gudmundur Jonsson Arkitektkontor

Friday, November 14th, 2014

Article source: Gudmundur Jonsson Arkitektkontor

The building is a 3-story house containing the basement as a two studio-apartments for hire. There is an excellent view towards south, a situation that has formed the two glazed volumes that are cantilevered and stretching towards the view. The top-floor is retracted a bit in order to give the overall impression of a lower building in the landscape and as well acting as an important creator of the composition. The longitudinal 2-storey-woid in the center of the house is emphasizing the connection between the two main spaces an simultaneously creating a spacious flow between stories.

Article source: OKRA LANDSCHAPSARCHITECTEN BV

Park as a Spatial Anchor

The new Park of Caspar Wittelplantsoen in Amersfoort connects the new building of the Soesterkwartier along Puntenburgerlaan with the existing buildings and acts as a green meeting place for both old and new residents. The ambition is, on a relatively small area, to create an abundance of green. This is achieved by placing a large amount of new trees and grassy plains as the basis for the establishment of the park.
