The strong structure and the articulated tectonic of the new building is based on an overall 3D order and relates to a classical rational tradition.  The aim has been to create a building that enables its users to appropriate it and at the same time strengthen the common identity.

An existing timber structure was moved to the site and placed on in-situ concrete walls. A wooden frame structure heightens the structure to allow two full floors. The 2nd floor is divided by two load bearing walls that span between the perimeter walls to allow the open ground floor. The house is inscribed in a geometric grid that informs the position of walls and openings.

Widlund House in Öland, Sweden by Claesson Koivisto Rune Architects

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2012

Article source: Claesson Koivisto Rune Architects

This house is like a funnel of light, space and sea views. The location is the west coast of the Baltic island of Öland. The white concrete box is “corsetted” in the middle, creating slightly sheared wall and roof angles. This gives the house both its direction and character, while also marking the difference between the rear private two-storey bedroom part and the communal double ceiling-height front part.

Vetlanda Group-Home in Vetlanda, Sweden by Kjellgren Kaminsky Architecture

Tuesday, May 15th, 2012

Article source: Kjellgren Kaminsky Architecture

KKA has designed a new group-home for six young disabled persons situated in the rural town of Vetlanda. The dwellers expressed a strong wish for the building not to have the appearance of a large complex but rather to relate to the scale of surrounding villas and farmhouses. Therefore we designed each dwelling with its own pitched roof. The houses are gathered around a common dining room. Much effort was put in to design the homes to suit the users´ specific needs of universal design.

Article source: François Blanciak Architect

In order to emphasize the public nature of the art center, the project presents itself as a series of cuts of an original spherical volume that are tilted to allow pedestrians to cross freely through the public space upon which the building sits. In addition to distinguishing the various programmatic elements of the project, this translation movement follows and connects to an existing public building axis.

TENNISCALATOR in växjö, sweden by david tajchman

Thursday, April 26th, 2012

Article source: David tajchman

Tenniscalator is a proposal for a new tennis centre in Vaxjo, Sweden. Made entirely out of wood it spans an area of 9000 m2. The site chosen for the project is large enough to welcome a one level tennis complex programme. However, a quick analysis of the areas shows the possibility of concentrating everything in almost 10% of the plot area. this concentration in the northern part of the parcel allows the development of a 13652 square meters landscape facing the future built developments. Layering tennis courts is aimed to give a landmark character to the proposal. The wooden totem reaches a height of 58 meters. Not too high, nor too flat, this iconic piece of wood is now visible from far, easy to recognize, easier to identify the neighbourhood.
Building compact permits environmental advantages such as economies of energies and displacements. Heating, ventilation, water, gas and electricity networks are shorter in a vertical setting then in the horizontal one.

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.

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.
