GRAFT’s proposal for the Viking Ship Museum in Oslo finds its place in a unique historic and spatial context; integrated into an outdoor museum complex in the center of the Bygdøy peninsula. The long and vivid history of the Viking Museum and its presented findings unfold in a continuous motion within and around the new landscape that houses the extension. The draft aims to protect the residents’ and visitors’ view of the area in the north while sensitively augmenting the landscape features on the given site.

Article source: B612ASSOCIATES 

The project is situated on the edge of the urban on a clear transition point between the urbanistic stretch, the fringes bordering the roads, and the areas opening into the landscape: the alignement of the buildings defines the roads and the public spaces, but at times it draws back, it opens, then it spreads out to make place for the structural, open and landscaped entities. The site and brief analysis has allowed us to define the guidelines and the project objectives in order to compose a friendly and durable environment that is beneficial for the commodations and the neighbourhood.

Located on the quayside of the Munksjön lake, these two urban housing blocks are based on a long term strategy of sustainability, creating attractive housing on one of the best sites in central Jönköping. Rather than a row of standard housing slabs, the requested number of apartments was assembled into two large units. The two compact volumes establish a solid position proportionally acceptable both to the city as well as the lake. It also minimizes the building envelope in line with the low energy concept.
