OPEN SANDNES City Hall in Norway by KAMJZ

Wednesday, September 20th, 2017

Article source: KAMJZ

Enhancing Public Participation

The base for the design was the desire to create a free unrestricted access to knowledge and information, as well as a collaborative and cooperative management and decision making process with emphasis on the right to see the operations and activities of government at work. This supports government accountability and helps protect other necessary rights. The new City Hall of Sandnes would celebrate the concept of openness and transparency. Designed as a welcoming house which is as accessible as possible to it’s citizens and a building that lives up to the highest requirements for a modern, efficient and flexible office space. The volume required by the program would be adapted to the local urban conditions and modified to create connections with the surrounding area and bring the inhabitants closer to the city officials and their decision making process in the spirit of true participation. With all the office spaces continuously facing the streets a courtyard is created which would be the central area of the whole Havneparken masterplan. Walking and biking, crisscrossing from the streets, would be encouraged to reach the water promenade, creating a vibrant district for pedestrians and cyclists. The importance of the building in the area would be emphasized by it’s architectural exterior design where past tradition would be commemorated with a modern dynamic and universal outlook.

Article source: v2com

On the site of Skjervsfossen (Skjervet waterfall), Fortunen have designed a small service building consisting of two restrooms and a small technical room, while the landscape design is made by Østengen & Bergo. The client, Nasjonale turistveger, challenged Fortunen and Østengen & Bergo to accentuate and enhance the experience of the natural landscape, whilst not competing with it. The overall aspiration was to create a unique and surprising experience. The main concept has been to make the wild nature accessible without hurting it.

Article source: TYIN tegnestue Architects

A dream of the worldÕs most beautiful workspace

Three years ago HŒvard Lund stood in the office of TYIN Tegnestue. The musician from GildeskŒl presented a vision of creating the worldÕs most beautiful workspace on the isle of Fleinv¾r outside Bod¿, in the northernmost parts of Norway. The workspace would be a place where musicians, artists and other creative souls could rent rooms for shorter or longer timespans. The small isle offers a secluded working environment in an area of awe-inspiring natural beauty, surrounded on all sides by wild sea.

ACTIVATE, GENERATE, INTEGRATE! in Kristiansand, Norway by SPARCH Sakellaridou / Papanikolaou Architects & Meinich Arkitekter

Friday, June 23rd, 2017

Article source: SPARCH Sakellaridou / Papanikolaou Architects

The Museum of Modern Art

We wanted to create a powerful image for the city skyline and a poetic spatial experience for the art lover. At the same time we wanted to keep the industrial image of the Silo. We wanted to give it new life without gentrifying it.

Our Museum is a hybrid Silo, industrial once, now filled with light and art. Its warehouse remains a warehouse, its tubes get filled with light and movement, its ethereal extensions do not disturb the robustness of the original structure, while the big horizontal ‘crane’ reflects the sunlight.

Mad Building in Oslo, Norway by MAD arkitekter

Friday, June 16th, 2017

Article source: MAD arkitekter 

Challenge

The challenge was extreme: What to do with an urban space which is 10 x 90 metres in area, with minimal sunlight and a requirement of 200 bicycle parking places? This strip of city floor should give pedestrians (and cyclists!) a pleasant experience and, at the same time, provide a suitable entrance to the commercial areas on ground floor level

Hunter Bar in Oslo, Norway by Snøhetta

Wednesday, May 31st, 2017

Article source: Snøhetta

Snøhetta has created a holistic interior design and visual identity for the restaurant Hunter Bar, located at the newly built international terminal at Oslo Airport. Hunter Bar is conceived as a hunting lodge where guests can seek shelter and relax leaning back onto the wall of the centrally placed cabin. The restaurant has a rustic and robust expression, drawing inspiration from buildings in weather-torn locations. With the use of roughly cut wooden elements, raw steel, and leather in natural tones, the design evokes an atmosphere rich with associations to nature and hunting traditions.

The cabin is situated in gently sloping terrain on a lush small island northeast of Stavanger. The island has no road connection to the mainland, and all building materials have therefore been transported to the site by boat.

Boggestranda in Nesset, Norway by Rever & Drage Architects

Thursday, May 18th, 2017

Article source: Rever & Drage Architects

The conversion has been made in order to change an old building with a simple cellar and ten very small rooms to a functional cabin. The owners wanted to retain the traditional and representative facade towards the road and other settlement in the village, however, they wished a more open aspect towards the fjord and mountains. The original building comprised a mix of building materials and included both vertical and horizontal panelling. A large glass panel has now been included in the south-east wall, such that the new kitchen has a completely open aspect to the views in this direction. The south and east facades were previously a collage of materials and colors which the new glass panel is now a part of. The top of the glass panel extends up past an existing low paneled wall in the loft, such that the woodwork absorbs warmth and sun-rays penetrate between the panels.
