Developed by Spacescape, Airport City Stockholm, in cooperation with Swedavia Swedish Airports (state), Sigtuna municipality, and Arlandastad Holding (private real estate), has a new urban design strategy and urban plan that envisions a unique airport city which emphasizes urban qualities and places sustainability in focus. Such rapid expansion has placed distinct demands on planning, which has resulted in this collaborative effort.

Article source: 3XN Architects

‘Stockholm City Station’ will mark the entrance to Stockholm’s inner city center and integrates the station, a hotel and conference center along with apartments. The main idea behind the design was to create a building that gently adjusts to the area’s existing building in scale and expression, and which reinterprets a number of local Swedish design traditions.

Nobis Hotel in Stockholm, Sweden by Claesson Koivisto Rune Architects

Wednesday, April 18th, 2012

Article source: Claesson Koivisto Rune Architects

Towards the end of the 19th century, every self-respecting city erected what it considered to be its biggest and best hotel. It was usually named Grand Hotel and was more often than not paid for out of the private pockets of wealthy barons. These hotels are often still in use today and have a charm that maybe only a century-old ideal of quality can give.

Continental Towers in Stockholm, Sweden by C. F. Møller Architects

Sunday, April 15th, 2012

Article source: C. F. Møller Architects

The tower block construction in Stockholm has been planned in connection with the extension of the City Line rail link.

The complex of 100 metres, the equivalent of approximately 30 stories, will include a hotel, offices and possibly housing. The building will be equipped with an entrance to a new station at street level directly opposite the city’s old main railway station, Centralen, and will therefore be a landmark for Stockholm’s new metro.

Vittra Telefonplan in Stockholm, Sweden by Rosan Bosch

Tuesday, February 14th, 2012

Article source: Rosan Bosch

How do you create a school without any walls? In the 30 schools of the Swedish free school organisation Vittra there are no classes or classrooms – instead, the students are taught in groups according to level based on the school’s pedagogical principles of ’the wateringhole’, ’the show-off’, ’the cave’, ’the campfire’ and ’the laboratory’ – didactic approaches that create different types of learning and teaching situations. In Vittra, they do not believe in regular classes and the school organisation’s vision is to create an everyday for the individual students where individual development, a living cultural work and challenging learning environments are most important.

Villa Midgård in Stockholm, Sweden by DAPstockholm

Sunday, January 15th, 2012

Article source: DAPstockholm

When the client met with DAPstockholm they wished for a solid, secluded house with a maintenance‐free facade, a sense of ceiling height and a master bedroom with the benefit of morning sun. They also wished for a solution where they could open up larger windows toward the scenery and have a sheltered space where they could sit and listen to the pouring rain. This resulted in a multi‐faceted house where the shape and direction of the different volumes are based on various factors such as the terrain, the light conditions, the views and the privacy. The volumes give the house seven different facades.

Cemetary Service Building at Ulriksdal in Stockholm, Sweden by Petra Gipp Arkitektur and In Praise of Shadows

Wednesday, December 21st, 2011

Article source: Petra Gipp Arkitektur and In Praise of Shadows

We see a cemetery as a place which is naturally linked to life. To the development of life through time and through the world, something wandering which suddenly one day can end. A demystified relationship to death makes life easier to live.

Färgfabriken Kunsthalle in Liljeholmen, Stockholm by Petra Gipp Arkitektur (designed using ArchiCAD)

Friday, December 16th, 2011

Article source: Petra Gipp Arkitektur

In the land marked industrial building dating from the last turn of century there are imprints of different eras. It can be compared to an archive layers of time. The building has served as ammunition factory, paint factory and presently as kunsthalle for contemporary art and architecture. The kunsthalle lies in an area with heavy, superannuated industrial buildings, more or less degenerated. This is a landscape that has been left, that is waiting to be demolished and integrated with the surrounding city. Until then, this place lives on its own terms.
