Galleri Örsta in Kumla, Sweden by Claesson Koivisto Rune

Article source: Claesson Koivisto Rune

A gallery for modern art, placed in a field. The whole gallery building shines like a traffic sign, when seen from a certain angle.

The gallery building

The new gallery building creates a ‘hamlet’ with the adjacent old farmhouses and the owners’ house, together representing three centuries of building tradition. Positioned on top of an artificial hill, as a buffer to the site’s moist soil, the base of the building follows the hill’s topology. The resulting series of curves at the building’s base, combined with mirroring curves in the rooflines, makes the planar facades seem curved – a bit like ‘cinemascope’ screens.

Task:

The existing building from the 1920s proved itself valuable to the client mainly due to the surrounding garden landscape. Nevertheless, there was the aim to create more space and living quality which was to be realised through revitalisation and extension. The client’s main wishes were the adaptation of the existing building to modern energy standards, a clearer and richer living space, the greatest possible view of the surrounding nature and the integration of garden and terrace areas into the living space and environment.

1st prize in a competition for new gateways to the Sjunkhatten National Park. Nordland, Norway.

”Saivu” is a sami word for a portal to another world. Based on the magic realism of the sami people and their understanding of nature, the construction system of their ”lavvo”, and an interpretation of old sami signs, we made the proposals for three gateways to the Sjunkhatten National Park. The park has a focus on children and the jury found the proposal’s focus on the mythical fit suitable to enrichen children’s experience of nature.  It is a dramatic and beautiful  landscape close to Bodø in northern norway between fjords and snow covered mountain peaks.
