Perspectives on Nordic Housing

#8 Marianne Ibler

– All the buildings are made by Nordic architects and demonstrate the settings for a modern society with great focus on sustainability, social responsibility and good living conditions. All aspects that most of us architects agree upon.

Quote from the foreword in our publication A New Golden Age ‘Nordic Housing’.

#9 Social sphere and privat space

The aim was to meet a wish for a social sphere where you can chat with the neighbours over the hedge and also provide space to be one’s own family

Extract from our latest publication A New Golden Age Nordic Housing

Both E+E and KPF’s houses are great examples on how social sphere can interact in the private space.

Reuters Have: “The terraced houses are characterised by light, air and spaciousness throughout the three floors with large windows on the east and west facades. These terraced houses all have double-floor rooms.”

Bakke Allé: “The houses are grouped two-and-two in eight double houses around a central oval green area with lawns and hardwood trees. The 16 houses, which have the same scale as the neighbourhood’s villas, are adapted to the geometry of their grounds.”

Cottage for Christmas

Hidden behind big pinewood trees

This Holiday home by Mette Lange Architects is beautifully hidden from the harsh Icelandic weather and it’s easy to imagine yourself with a hot cup of cocoa in front of the fireplace enjoying a white winter wonderland.

Our new book; A New Golden Age, Nordic Housing, features 3  Nordic examples by Mette Lange Architects

Perspectives on Nordic Architecture

#7 John M. Cava

– The quality of thoughtfulness given to the designs, accompanied by consistent skills in construction and – most importantly – the liveability of the completed projects. These buildings are an inspiration to the world on techniques and approaches that manifest excellent housing.

Quote from his article ‘Precedents and Prototypes Experiencing Today’s Nordic Housing’ in our publication A New Golden Age Nordic Housing

#8 From courthouse to residential

An old courthouse has been transformed into a tall apartment building placed on top of the exposed bedrock visible in the atrium

Extract from our latest publication A New Golden Age Nordic Housing

“The new building is strongly inspired by an internationally recognized Swedish painter with roots in the local area, Bengt Lindström. The plan is made as a basic square floor plan, which is divided into squares like a hashtag. The layout has five apartments wrapped around the central core, with balconies in all four directions.”
