The Big Picture

Strategy for how to activate the Swedish national parks. Our proposal was about focusing on the landscape through the impact of architecture. How to use the architecture as a lens by which you can see and understand the surroundings.


Location: Swedish national parks
Client: Naturvårdsverket
Collaborator: Erik Andersson, Henrik Nygren

Do nothing – or just a little bit

A master plan for 20 single-family houses in an untouched area on the west coast of Gotland. The area consisted of only plain rocks and 200-300 years old pine trees. We used the existing qualities of the site and developed an introvert house topology that didn’t privatize or destroy any parts of the site.

Form Follows Landscape

A multi-use cultural center situated in a very expressive landscape with bare rocks and old pine trees. The building consists of three long houses, connected to create spaces within. As they are pushed down into the ground unifying with the horizon, they form a relief of the landscape.

Fjallormen

A development plan in Hemavan, Lappland. How can we combine architecture and landscape instead of adding things on top? In our proposal we suggested a topology that followed the heights and created a living landform. A building and infrastructure generated from the readings and understandings of the site – following the topography.

Remote Lodge

Two housing units close by a nature reserve just by the national river Vindelälven in Lappland. A desolated area where you have to go straight into the wild! The objective was to create a massive wood building not connected with anything except the landscape. Oriented with sun and wind in mind merging with the surroundings into a unified entity.
