Friday, June 24th, 2016

Article source: Christensen & Co. architects 

The new Kindergarten and nursery is placed by the sea, on the tip of Islands Brygge in Copenhagen and the architecture is designed in accordance with the surrounding existing buildings, an area characterised by small boathouses and small dwellings. While still in the capital of Denmark, the children will have a daily life filled with fresh sea air and the sound of seagulls. 

Nokken houses 124 children (3 nursery groups and 4 pre-school groups), has a good indoor climate and sustainable materials.

NOBIS – EFTERSLÆGTEN Sportscentre in Copenhagen, Denmark by LAUNGAARD ARKITEKTER

Saturday, June 18th, 2016

Article source: LAUNGAARD ARKITEKTER

The project was to construct an indoor sports arena in an already existing urban environment. The challenge was to find the right architectural connection and identity between the existing structures and the new building. The functions of the new building, its dance hall, gym and lecture halls were different from that of the existing buildings and finding the right balance became a key priority.  The new indoor arena is pressed into the landscape and solidly grounded in order to ensure that the structure is kept on the same horizontal level as the existing structures. Pockets of light and air have been constructed to underline the different levels and dimensions of the surrounding landscape and the creation of layers in the façade to the Northwest is constructed in order to connect the exterior with the interior of the building. NOBIS’ façade reveals an inner secret, an inner structure and a layered structure to form an arena that serve as the surrounding structure for the game on the pitch. The layered construction of the faced is made up of ‘translucent polycarbons and expanded metalthat has a shading effect. The choice of materials ensures that the light in the arena is always changing and somewhat diffuse. The arena has a uniformed façade that leaves a different visual impression depending on the amount of light both inside and outside. On the backside of the Northwest end of the façade the columns and beams are revealed. The Arena is a place made for ‘combat’ – for physical challenges and heated matches – set within raw and bare columns.

The Opal in Copenhagen, Denmark by Dorte Mandrup Arkitekter

Wednesday, June 15th, 2016

Article source: Dorte Mandrup Arkitekter 

Dorte Mandrup Arkitekter has won the competition to design an extension to the existing headquarters of The Danish Society of Engineers, IDA. “The Opal” is technological advanced and a true eye catcher. It will be prominently placed in the Copenhagen Harbour.

The building is named “The Opal”, which refers to the oval gemstone that reflects all colours of the spectrum. The reference is evident in both form and structure. The new landmark will have a similar play of colours when the water is reflected in its skin and through projected lights in the facade.

Children’s Culture House Ama’r in Copenhagen, Denmark by Dorte Mandrup Arkitekter

Friday, April 29th, 2016

Article source: Dorte Mandrup Arkitekter

The Children’s Culture House offers various play facilities and programmes for children of all ages.

Located on a street corner, the structure mediates between the adjoining brick buildings, which are of different height. In it’s form and use of materials, however, the centre is quite distinct. A silvery aluminium skin, perforated by square windows is drawn over the roof and outer walls and the lower height at the corner allows sunlight to enter the rear courtyard. The expression of the Children’s Culture House is surprising and imaginative: the roof and facades are treated the same, and the House does not have a “start” and “end” as ordinary houses do.

The Crystal in Copenhagen, Denmark by Schmidt hammer lassen architects

Wednesday, December 2nd, 2015

Article source: Schmidt hammer lassen architects

The extension to Nykredit consists of a new building – the Crystal – sited northwest of the existing Nykredit premises. Freestanding on the site, it reads as a transparent, geometrical, glazed form which, resting only on a single point and a single line, floats as a visually light, crystalline structure above the plaza.
