In this post we would like to present a Swedish home displaying an ultra-modern architecture approach. The whitewashed residence (discovered by our site on Skeppsholmen) is structured on two levels and features a big terrace with a molded sun-drenched infinity pool of 8×5 meters adorned with light blue glass mosaic. Another outdoor highlight is an immersed terrace, large enough for 10 people. The building hides six rooms characterized by stylish simplicity of form and color, combined with exclusive and carefully selected materials.
From the entrance hall on the upper level, you can see into the generous living area with lounge, dining room and kitchen. Common rooms flow together along a curved window section on the patio. Adjacent to the kitchen you will find a breakfast nook in a round pavilion, with windows on three sides. The curved staircase in the living room’s rear leads down to the ground floor hall, where a large wine cellar and equipment rooms are located.
Inside the school, a wall made of cross-laminated timber separates classrooms from the main corridor, providing a space for storage and study. With very little to work with, the architects have managed to create a building that is much more than just the sum of all of its parts
An example of a huge success is Heneghan Peng Architects’ Giant’s Causeway Visitors’ Centre in Antrim, Northern Ireland. Using the large difference in level across the site, the architects created two folds in the landscape. Bold, but not conflicting with the rather bleak natural environment, these folds draw all the man-made areas together and create one fitting man-made break in the natural landscape. In the words of the architects themselves, There is no longer a building and a landscape, but building becomes landscape and the landscape itself remains spectacular and iconic
