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.”

Extract from our publication A New Golden Age Nordic Architecture & Landscape:
“We usually say that it takes about one minute for the forests of Sweden to produce all the material that went into constructing this building – sixty seconds. It weighs a third of what it would have if it had been constructed with a conventional concrete frame.”

The first issue of the Nordic New Golden Age book trilogy captures one of many Nordic inspired dwellings. With its minimalistic expression and natural materials, it is hidden in the landscape to inhale the beautiful view of Aarhus Bay. In Villa Albertsen, located in Aarhus, the architects Luplau & Poulsen Arkitekter are adapting the surroundings down to the very last detail. As they quote;
“A view to the horizon has inspired a horizontal design right down to the extended oblong brick format.”
