Mission Church in Floda, Sweden by Kjellgren Kaminsky Architecture

Friday, February 21st, 2014

Article source: Kjellgren Kaminsky Architecture

What if we rethink church? What if it wasn’t just a place we go, but something we do? What if church wasn’t just a place to go on Sunday, but helped you have a place to go on Monday?

The Floda Mission Church is an open place where people are welcome to seek help, knowledge, education, entertainment, or simply meet. It sits on a wooden deck offering places for various activities. By working with the duality of the physical space, which can be used by everybody, and the “space” above that exists between the Divine and humanity, the church keeps its sacral ambience although it is by principle a cultural space.

Stockholm’s many islands has created a beautiful city to live in but it has also created barriers between the inner city and the suburbs. Large scale bridges connects many of these places to each other, often built with the car in mind.

Tranebergsbron is one of the most beautiful bridges in Stockholm and connects the city island Kungsholmen with the western suburbs. It was completed in 1934, at that time having the world’s largest bridge vaults in concrete.

Office Conversion in Stockholm, Sweden by C.F. MØlLLER Architects

Tuesday, December 17th, 2013

Article source: C.F. MØlLLER Architects

A mix of new-built and a transformation of an existing brick office building, formerly occupied by TekniskaNämdhuset, part of the City of Stockholm, the idea behind the proposal is to retain a large proportion of the existing structure, and add a slab building and two smaller point blocks between the former office wings – a solution which, together with the jetty and new terraced stairs facing the water, opens up the buildings  to their surroundings and creates a new, recreational meeting place in central Stockholm.

Wooden Skyscraper in Stockholm, Sweden by C.F. MØlLLER Architects

Sunday, December 15th, 2013

Article source: C.F. MØlLLER Architects

For the Västerbroplan plot in the Marieberg district, Berg | C.F. Møller has drawn up plans for a 34-floor wooden apartment building. The building is designed around a wooden structure with stabilising concrete cores.

Pillars and beams will be constructed using solid and cross-laminated timber and inside the apartments floors, ceilings and window frames will be made from wood, allowing the material to also be visible from the outside through the large windows. Wood is the natural choice when it comes to materials for innovative residential development: It is an environmentally friendly and durable material which creates a comfortable and healthy indoor climate and, surprisingly enough, also constitutes a very efficient protection against fire.

Aula Medica in Solna, Sweden by Wingårdh Arkitektkontor AB

Sunday, December 15th, 2013

Article source: Wingårdh Arkitektkontor AB

Strange enough, no large auditorium was built at Karolinska Institutet when its campus was created in the 1940’s. Yes, there were intentions, but the medical university expanded in numbers as well as ranking without any possibility to assemble neither students nor scientists in large numbers. In the beginning of the new millennia, a donation finally made it possible to complete the compound with the venue it needed so long.
