Mission Church in Floda, Sweden by Kjellgren Kaminsky Architecture

What if we rethink church? What if it wasn’t just a place we go, but something we do? What if church wasn’t just a place to go on Sunday, but helped you have a place to go on Monday?

The Floda Mission Church is an open place where people are welcome to seek help, knowledge, education, entertainment, or simply meet. It sits on a wooden deck offering places for various activities. By working with the duality of the physical space, which can be used by everybody, and the “space” above that exists between the Divine and humanity, the church keeps its sacral ambience although it is by principle a cultural space.

Arlevagen in Floda, Gothenburg by Helhetshus

Wednesday, March 21st, 2012

Article source: Helhetshus

This project is Helhetshus´s first own developed, housing project. The goal was to build 8 houses that felt exclusive regarding architecture and design, yet affordable. The site is located in Floda, 25 kilometers northeast of Gothenburg, Sweden. It´s a clearing on a hillside with large oak trees and a beautiful view of lake Sävelången. By using the existing conditions of the site and placing the houses halfway over the edge of the hillside; each house got a nice view towards the lake and at the same time it created more space on the sunny side of the plot towards southwest. The boomerang-shaped building leaves an open space towards the street and a more secluded garden space south of the building witch is maximised by placing the buildings as far north as possible on each plot.
