A talk on Nordic Architecture
#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
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.”

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.”

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.”

Our new book Nordic Housing also includes a speciel interview with the worldknown architect Bjarke Ingels from BIG with his visions on future living.
It’s an interesting interview portrayed in beautiful photografies.
