VILLA ASTRID in Gothenburg, Sweden by Wingårdh Arkitektkontor AB

Wednesday, December 21st, 2016

Article source: Wingårdh Arkitektkontor AB 

I designed Villa Astrid in the summer of 2002 and Karin completed the details and made improvements throughout the autumn. The site was tucked between two houses and consisted mainly of rugged and fairly steep rock. The detailed plans specified eaves of maximum 3.5 metres high and a roof slope of 14 to 27 degrees. My client had a construction programme for a two-storey building. The answer was to sink the upper floor. That sounds easy, but it took several weeks to design.

Sunday, December 11th, 2016

Article source: White Arkitekter

The Swedish city of Piteå, located about 130 kms below the Arctic Circle, wanted a new parking garage but also got a sledding hill, an amphitheater and a large lantern. The project ‘Stadsberget’ (Swedish for ‘city mountain’) was designed by White Arkitekter in cooperation with Henning Larsen Architects and has become a unique meeting place and tourist attraction in the city centre.

Örnberget – Spine/Precipice in Stockholm archipelago, Sweden by Petra Gipp Arkitektur

Friday, November 11th, 2016

Article source: Petra Gipp Arkitektur

A narrow site high up on a precipice overlooks the inner Stockholm archipelago to the south. It meets a dense row of pine trees to the west and a softer grove of deciduous trees to the east. One enters the site from the north, where a generous staircase mediates the initial steep south-facing slope. The stairs follow a concrete wall that forms the spine of the structure, and lead the visitor downwards between the concrete wall on the one side and a wooden volume on the other. The staircase leaves the visitor at a gap in the concrete wall, providing a glimpse of the garden on the other side. The promenade continues along the closed wall, towards the view and the water, now flanked to the west by the row of pine trees. A second opening in the wall presents the entrance to the house and extends a passage through and across it, into the garden.

Spira in Jönköping, Sweden by Wingårdhs

Sunday, October 9th, 2016

Article source: Wingårdhs

Spira is twisted as a spiral to catch the attention of the eye as well as the body; transparent, to turn every side into a front; compact, to be efficient and sparse; meandering, to create expectation.

The performing arts centre Spira in the city of Jönköping is a regional scene for music and theater in the southern part of Sweden. It is a culturally vivid part of the country, but the performing arts have not had a permanent stage so far. Our proposal is a result of a winning competition from 2005 and the house was inaugurated on 11.11.11.

Lilla Alby school in Sundbyberg, Sweden by Marge Arkitekter

Saturday, September 24th, 2016

Article source: Marge Arkitekter

As an addition to an existing school built in 1968 this extension has been designed to accommodate 180 students in elementary and middle school in addition to the previous 240 and provide new classrooms, staff areas, a cafeteria and a library. An important task in the layout of the whole school complex was to release as much space as possible for play and green areas in the school yard. In order to do so, the extension is divided into a slender five story brick building with a tight footprint aligned with the street, and another lighter volume that links the old and the new school building together.
