This beautiful house-to-be is designed by Malmö-based architecture studio Förstberg Arkitektur (FAF). That’s right people – you are looking at extremely realistic and super beautiful 3D renderings of “House for mother”. Insane. In the membrane. This work-in-progress residence is located on a 325sqm site in the Southern Swedish city of Linköping. Built for the Linköpingsbo 2017 home exhibition, the house is divided into two parallel structures slightly shifted from each other, creating spaces both in front of and behind the building. Oriented to the park in the north and the alley in the south, “House for Mother” is a reflection of it’s neighbourhood plan, which incorporates a variety of housing types into relatively small blocks of land.
Björk, a handsome brasserie in Aosta, Italy, opened just over a year ago by a fashion entrepreneur Giuliana Rosset. Combining the food with design, the restaurant claims to be the first authentic Swedish cuisine outlet in Italy. Who would’ve thought there was a marker for this, no? Björk sits quietly in the Italian Alps in a convenient spot between some of the best ski resorts of Switzerland and France. Shocking – why would anyone want to visit a place like this? Seriously. Yuck.
Inspired by the changing seasonal colours, this Stockholm apartment refurbished by architects Tham & Videgård Hansson, takes colour play to a new level.
Sweden – top three in my list of places I’d be from if I wasn’t from here. Elding Oscarson – similarly top-ranking in the sort of architects I’d be if I was in that league. So what joy today’s post brings – it’s a house in Sweden by Elding Oscarson! We’re out on a peninsula jutting westwards into the sound separating Sweden from Denmark (also top three). In the town of Mölle, stands this Y-shaped house for a young family. The architect’s statement explains that the funny shape was hit upon to address views to all corners of the site, not just the ocean views. I’m normally wary of anything that isn’t a right angle, but there are always exceptions.
