#16 Vacation in the westerly wind

While the rain falls and the wind blows Holiday Home Henne is hiding in the big dunes at the Danish west coast perfectly suited for the rough weather.

Extract from our latest publication A New Golden Age Nordic Housing

“The climate is tough with an almost constant strong westerly wind. The house has a courtyard facing south to embrace the light and sunshine, and to provide shelter. The irregular shape of the house is the result of optimising space with direct views to the sea.”

“Are we outside looking in, or inside looking out? It is not important – what is important is the simultaneous merging and separation of these two worlds.”

– John M. Cava

#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.”
