“Eco-friendly retirement home in the Arctic Circle” in Finnmark, Norway by Kebony

Friday, December 18th, 2015

Article source: Kebony

The Kautokeino Home Care Centre is a 1,000m2 structure designed to ease accessibility for its residents, provide spectacular views of Finnmark, Norway and be environmentally friendly. The unique architecture of the single floor horse-shoe shape provides views from many different angles and alleviates the need for elderly residents negotiating stairs; in addition the eco-home meets the environmental requirements of the Norwegian Standard NS3700, the national equivalent of the ‘Passive House’ standards.

TURTAGRØ HOTEL in Sognefjellet, Norway by Jarmund/Vigsnæs AS Architects MNAL

Tuesday, December 1st, 2015

Article source: Jarmund/Vigsnæs AS Architects MNAL

The old Turtagrø Hotel, which has been the starting point for climbing in the Hurrungane Mountains for more than a hundred years, burned down in 2001. The owner wanted to create some of the atmosphere of the old building – a recognisable scale, spatial sequence, colours and materials, relating to a nearby timber annex. Outside of this the requirement was for a hotel with a new architectonic expression and an efficient layout.

Villa S in Bergen, Norway by Saunders Architecture

Thursday, October 29th, 2015

Article source:  Saunders Architecture

Describing his latest project, a house for his own family in a leafy suburb of Bergen, Todd Saunders says, ‘It’s like three sticks, stacked on top of each other.’ At a stretch, the analogy holds – the house is composed of three woodclad elements, one vertical, two horizontal – but it’s far more accurate to describe it as a strictly functional composition.

Øvre Forsland Power Station in Helgeland, Norway by Kebony

Friday, October 2nd, 2015

Article source: Kebony

Norway, a country that generates more than 80% of its electricity from hydropower, has added to its renewable repertoire in the guise of a beautifully Kebony-clad 30GWh plant. The plant is situated deep within the mountains of Helgeland, a hiker’s paradise just below the Arctic Circle. The region is known for its unique coastline and spectacular mountain formations and the architects wanted the plant’s design to be inspired by and reflect the landscape, whilst also functioning as an attraction for hikers in the back country wilderness.

SOPP Lillehammer – 2016 Youth Olympic Games Student Housing in Norway by Kebony

Friday, September 18th, 2015

Article source: Kebony

Lillehammer, the site of the upcoming 2016 Youth Olympic Games, is soon to open the doors for a new development of student accommodation, which – in line with ‘passive house’ standards – has put environmental credentials at the forefront of the design and selection of construction materials. The development, designed by Henning Larsen Architects and SGB, is named SOPP (short for Studentsamskipnaden i Oppland), as it will house students in its 360 apartments across four blocks. The whole development is clad in Kebony’s sustainable, durable wood that will offer resistance to the chilly, windswept climate of the mountainous, lakeside Gudbrandsdal region.

Writers’ Cottage 2 in Oslo, Norway by JVA

Sunday, September 13th, 2015

Article source: JVA

This small annex is located in the garden of two professionals in a residential area on the outskirts of the city.

The clients wanted a place that would give them space and quiet to focus on their writing and work. At the same time they wanted a view that could somehow remind them of their native West-Norwegian landscapes, this in spite of the site’s location only offering views towards a parking lot and a train station. Their intention was that the project would work as an alternative to a cottage in the countryside.
