NEW LAPPEENRANTA CITY THEATRE in Finland by ALA Architects

Thursday, January 7th, 2016

Article source: ALA Architects 

The concept for the Lappeenranta City Theatre is exceptional: the theater has been built on the top floor of a shopping center. The idea, however, is ancient as this is theater coming back to its roots, back to the marketplace, back to the people. Millions of people visiting the shopping center annually will be able to enjoy a variety of plays, while the restaurants cater for intermissions and the hotel offers accommodation.

Kämp Galleria Shopping Center in Helsinki, Finland by Architects Soini&Horto Ltd

Thursday, July 9th, 2015

Article source: Architects Soini&Horto Ltd

The Kämp galleria shopping center is located in the center of Helsinki in the block called ’Antilooppi’, steeped in history. Espagalleria Co, which operates the center, wanted to develop the shopping center by extending the rentable area and changing the content in a more commercial direction. The solution was to create an indoor street in the Galleria on two  floors and to radically change the interior look. References were taken from the city structure and the history of the property. In  addition, the customers’ shopping experiences were improved by changing the circulation inside, and by creating views with new openings between the floors.

Hotel Indigo Helsinki Boulevard in Finland by Architects Soini&Horto Ltd

Wednesday, July 8th, 2015

Article source: Architects Soini&Horto Ltd

Hotel Indigo Boulevard is located in a historical boulevard in central Helsinki where the surrounding buildings have their origins from the the beginning of the 1800–‐1900s. The task was to transform the former office building into a modern hotel that would fit into the historical environment. The building went through an extensive renovation and only the concrete frame, built in the 60s, was preserved. The old pre–‐fabricated concrete façade was replaced with a new light construction wall. The boulevard facing  façade was clad with multidimensional zinc plating. The façade with its new insulaton makes the building very energy–‐ saving, consequently the hotel has been LEED–‐ classified.  Finnish design and local craftsmanship was used in hotel. The zinc façade was constructed by a 73–‐ year old local whitesmith Esko Kivi, who has been  in the business for 50 years.

Guggenheim Helsinki in Finland by PLUS-SUM Studio

Friday, June 19th, 2015

Article source: PLUS-SUM Studio

Our proposal strategically intensifies and reimagines the Guggenheim Museum producing an iconic cultural landmark by sculpting natural light through physical and conceptual layers. These strata develop a rich, dynamic and varied experience synergistically contextualizing the museum at multiple scales to the material and cultural fabric of Helsinki and Finland. The design supplants the object/icon building (visually distinct, discrete parts) with a new subtle icon, embedded in Finnish culture (emotional, connected) and redefines Helsinki as an urbanized landscape; an extension of the museum.

In addition, the manor has an apple orchard, greenhouses, agricultural operations, direct sales and a cafe. The estate is owned by the Föreningen Konstsamfundet foundation, which had long been wanting premises to be rented to executives and their families. A beautiful plot was found by the shore about one kilometre from the main building.

Guggenheim Helsinki in Finland by 10AM Architecture

Friday, June 12th, 2015

Article source: 10AM Architecture

Feather – sense of lightness, gentleness, grace. It characterizes with slightly bend silhouette, symmetry and its structure that thins-away at the periphery, finishing in a virtually invisible line on a semi-transparent border. It separates the inside from the outside (subjective from objective), zero-gravity form gravity (independence versus shared responsibility). Something beautiful, that serves a purpose.
