#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.”

#7 Church of Shadows

The black-box with Nordic spirit

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

“When I designed the Church of Shadows my most important inspiration was the dualistic play between light and darkness. And how darkness can be important as a design element. I worked with darkness as in a love affair with light. This secret love affair was an important inspiration to me.”

Architect: Vesa Honkonen Architects: Design & Dreams Studio .  2012 . Chengdu, Sichuan, China . 700 m2
