Six Walls House in Saltsjö-Boo, Sweden by ARRHOV FRICK ARKITEKTKONTOR

Wednesday, April 1st, 2015

Article source: ARRHOV FRICK ARKITEKTKONTOR

The plot just outside Stockholm is located in a scenic area where mostly weekend homes are inserted among pine trees and rocks.
Six Walls House became early in the process a working title. The plot is long and narrow and extends between the road and the water. Perhaps as a contrast to the context, we wanted to build the house around a robust and clear material and concrete blocks with cement plaster became an important part. Simple geometry and detailing have been essential in order to build the house within a tight budget.

For the first time, Kebony’s wood has been used in an ecclesiastical façade for a new chapel which opened this autumn in Mölndal, Sweden. European churches have tended to use traditional building materials for posterity, permanence and durability, the use of Kebony’s wood in this project allows the chapel a fusion of contemporary style and traditional durability.

Woodhouse Rosendal in Uppsala, Sweden by Kjellander + Sjöberg

Saturday, February 21st, 2015

Article source: Kjellander + Sjöberg

The able, variable timber-block
Kjellander + Sjöberg’s proposal Rosendal is full of character and unlike anything else.
K + S has focused on surfaces, commercial units, the courtyard and the urban spaces that are used in quotidian yet innovative ways for multi-family housing in the city. The aim is to offer a block with a high sense of community – a welcoming context facilitating for good \”neighbourliness\”- from day one. K + S believes that the demand for unconventional forms of accommodation is great, where one has access to additional activities, contexts and functions beyond the own dwelling. Such as a joinery and workshop in the courtyard, a greenhouse on the roof, a space where you can repair your bike or paint your kitchen table. A space to have a flea market, host a crayfish-party or rabbit jumping contest; all in a green, recreational and generous setting, framed by apple trees and berry bushes.
