Today marks a unique moment in Stockholm’s history as work starts on site at Slussen, located at the heart of the historic city and its archipelago.

VillAnn in Halland, Sweden by Wingårdhs

Friday, July 1st, 2016

Article source: Wingårdhs

I’ve been wanting to design this house for a long time. The obvious design, with a series of rooms arranged along a line. My client wanted to be sure that it was possible to construct a good house on the site before he went ahead and bought it. This meant that time was critical one autumn day in 2003.

Villa Kristina in Göteborg, Sweden by Wingårdhs

Friday, June 24th, 2016

Article source: Wingårdhs

A small house that wants to be big. A small footprint and simple construction means low cost. That’s the idea when we set about designing a house for a young couple on a site surrounded by other single-family homes on the west side of Gothenburg.

Cirkus, Scandiascenen in Stockholm, Sweden by White Arkitekter

Wednesday, June 15th, 2016

Article source: White Arkitekter

The historic Cirkus theatre in Stockholm – built 1892 – has received a modern addition, Skandiascenen, partly built into a niche of solid rock. The foyers of the two amphitheaters are placed on two different levels. From the outside, each one of the facades preserves its own identity which is a testimony to their respective age. Inside, both venues share an intimate feeling in the auditoria and even the same shade of red that is commonly associated with traditional theatres.

Västra Kajen Housing in Jönköping, Sweden by Tham & Videgård Arkitekter

Thursday, April 21st, 2016

Article source: Tham & Videgård Arkitekter

Located on the quayside of the Munksjön lake, these two urban housing blocks are based on a long term strategy of sustainability, creating attractive housing on one of the best sites in central Jönköping. Rather than a row of standard housing slabs, the requested number of apartments was assembled into two large units. The two compact volumes establish a solid position proportionally acceptable both to the city as well as the lake. It also minimizes the building envelope in line with the low energy concept.

New School of Architecture, Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm, Sweden by Tham & Videgård Arkitekter

Wednesday, December 23rd, 2015

Article source: Tham & Videgård Arkitekter

The site on the KTH campus, with its very tangible cultural and historical context and its physical limitations, could be described as the opposite of a blank slate (Tabula Rasa). The new school is inserted into an existing courtyard space with existing pathways and is located adjacent to Erik Lallerstedt’s original and quite monumental brick buildings from the early twentieth century.
