#15 Housing in greenery scenes

The project stretches into the green landscape like splayed fingers and draws these green qualities in between the houses

Extract from our latest publication A New Golden Age Nordic Architecture & Landscape

“The project’s primary relationship with the urban and landscape elements can be seen in that the building complex is oriented towards the Eastern urban quarter, and towards the Southern green aspect and the nearby lake.”

#14 Finnish luxury housing for everyone

The Baltic Sea and the beautiful archipelago of Helsinki is an active part of the new Eiranranta residential building in Helsinki

Extract from our latest publication A New Golden Age Nordic Housing

“The three marine housing blocks contain different apartment types, e.g. for families, elderly people and for students or other people living alone. All dwellings have a view over the sea from the main living spaces. The balconies and large panorama windows make the light and surroundings become part of each dwelling.”

Flourishing news

Even though the spring is delayed, our work at Archipress M is flourishing. We can now announce that a whole new series is on its way and we can’t wait to introduce you to this news. For now we can spoil you with a second edition of  the book A New Golden Age Nordic Housing. Here’s a great example of a holiday home in Sweden, by Okidoki! Arkitekter.

#13 A holiday home imbedded in the landscape of Sweden

The view to Skærgården and the form of the surrounding mountains have been important for the design

Extract from our latest publication A New Golden Age Nordic Housing

“The holiday home is situated in a beautiful location between open fields and the sea. It is nicely embedded in the existing natural topography. The placement of the buildings creates both pleasent indoor and outdoor spaces.”

#12 Three Tile Types

Zooming in on architectural values of a 15-storey student housing to low family terraced dwellings and a luxury villa.

Extract from our publication A New Golden Age Nordic Housing,  Architecture and Landscape, Architecture and Design

Campus Hall
A penthouse feeling and a spectacular view of the surroundings is everyday life for the students at the Campus Hall.
“The residences are located in three interconnected 15-storey buildings with no front or back, designed to appear attractive from a 360-degree perspective.”

Artillerihaven
Sustainable living with roof vegetation working as isolation in the winter and heat reduction in the summer. The green roof also collects rainwater for evaporation.
“The terraced houses are located facing the newly created harbor inlet with beach and bathing. The massive inflow of light gives the sensation of the outdoor views being dragged into the living rooms.”

Villa Albertsen
Clean lines, simple details and natural materials creates a luxurious feeling for the family life in this villa.
“The villa enjoys a special front row position directly overlooking Aarhus Bay. The view to the horizon has inspired a horizontal design right down to the extended oblong brick format. The outlook and the landscape are omnipresent in this villa, and space has been created to be experienced both from the interior and in traversing through to the terrace.”

#11 Extension of an ordinary small villa

The characteristic curving form utilizes the wind factor, so the cooling winds do not directly strike the building’s walls

Extract from our latest publication A New Golden Age Nordic Housing

“Villa Leimio is a family house that has been realized as a renovation of an old house dating back to the 1980s. The original house was constructed with yellow bricks and has undergone notable changes.”

#10 New housing and restored old buildings

The former shipyard of Aker was the first brown field area in Oslo that was transformed into a new urban neighbourhood

Extract from our latest publication A New Golden Age Nordic Architecture & Landscape

“It was important to create good ties to Bryggegate street. A transparent entrance and reuse of the original walls of the alley highlights both the new building, the historic buildings and the original urban space.”
