’Villas in the Sky’ in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia by Henning Larsen Architects

More projects by Henning Larsen Architects

’Villas in the Sky’ is a mixed-use 34-storey tower placed at a unique location in the King Abdullah Financial District in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Situated as one of the last buildings in the green thoroughfare, the Wadi, and in a transition zone between the public square and the Wadi, the tower will become a strong local landmark. The form imitates the structural ideal of a high-rise building. It is a polygon with four equal sides allowing for very flexible spaces. The shifted upper plates create a jagged facade that visually differentiates the various programmes in the mixed-use building.

Umeå School of Architecture in Umeå, Sweden by Henning Larsen Architects

Article source: Henning Larsen Architects
More projects by Henning Larsen Architects

Umeå School of Architecture has a unique location by Umeå River. With its interior landscape of open floor levels and sculpturally shaped stairs, the building has a strong artistic expression. As a growth centre for future architecture, the main function of the building is to provide the framework for inspiration and innovation. From the outside, the building has a cubic expression with its larch facades and square windows placed in a vibrant, rhythmic sequence on all sides. The interior space of the building is designed as a dynamic sequence of stairs and split, open floor levels where abstract, white boxes hang freely from the ceiling filtering the light coming in through the high skylights.

Henning Larsen Architects’ proposal for Batumi Aquarium is inspired by the characteristic pebbles of the Batumi beach – shaped by sea currents through millennia. The building stands out as an iconic rock formation visible from both land and sea. The formation constitutes four self-supporting exhibition areas with each stone representing a unique marine biotype – the Aegean Sea & the Mediterranean Sea, the Indian Ocean, the Black Sea & the Red Sea and finally the more interactive exhibition space for teaching and “edutainment”.
