Miss Clara Hotel

After five years of extensive renovation and modernization, Nationalmuseum, Stockholm’s National Museum of Fine Arts, finally re-opened on October 13, 2018, offering visitors an enhanced experience underpinned by its mission to make art and design as accessible as possible. 

The same vision has been the driving force behind the museum’s new 300-seat restaurant and café which has taken over three impressive ground-floor galleries previously closed to the public.

79&Park is a porous residential building of 3.6m x 3.6m modules organized around an open green courtyard. The building’s tallest corner is lifted up to 35m in order to maximize the inflow of natural daylight as well as views towards Gärdet and the Frihamnen port for most of its units. The modules cascade down to the building’s lowest profile at just 7m, gradually extending the wooden development into the park. 79&Park appears like a gentle hillside, seamlessly blending into the nature around it.

The organic expression and cedar cladding continue into the green courtyard, where residents and visitors are met by different-sized plateaus that create small activity pockets and spaces for amenities: a shared outdoor area with lush bushes, flowers and trees, a dog daycare, a preschool and ample racks for bicycle parking.

House of Garsnas

The House of Garsnas provides a new visitor attraction on Skeppsholmen. By visiting the showroom you can see and feel the world of Gärsnäs furniture – a light touch and innovative design – that for decades has been the first choice of many architects. Garsnas has always known that its furniture is also excellently suited to private homes, but never quite had the right premises to show it off properly.

Svensksundsvägen 17 Skeppsholmen, 111 49 Stockholm

Opening hours:
Tuesday–Friday 10.00 – 18.00

Landsort

I have the blog post about our trip to Landsort. 


Landsort is a Swedish village with a lighthouse on the island of Oja. The village has about 30 permanent residents. The tower was built in 1689 and an upper conical iron section was added in 1870. Since early times, open fires have been burning at this place, serving as beacons. Landsort is the southernmost point of the Stockholm archipelago.

Stora Sjöfallet by ArkJoliark

Environmentally classified and high-class homes in houses made of prefabricated concrete elements. Stora Sjöfallet stands for the unexpectedly brilliant!

The housing project Stora Sjöfallet is located by the waters of Husarviken and the greenery of Norra Djurgården. The structure is simple and clear – horizontal and vertical concrete elements form the framework for 30 apartments of various sizes. Large glass sections, from floor to ceiling, make the structure of the house visible and blur the boundary between one's own home and nature outside.

The concrete is raw and untreated. The wooden frames of the glass partitions and the surrounding greenery stand as a warm contrast. The properties of the concrete and the prerequisites for element construction have guided the design process. The result is a clean and consistently executed project, from the whole to the detail.


Location:
Husarviksgatan 16
Norra Djurgårdsstaden, Stockholm

Construction years:
2014-2016

Tappen
 
The project comprises 44 dwellings organised within two volumes. A driving force in the design process has been the preservation of a pure and simple material expression. Rigorously composed meetings between wood, concrete and steel ensure the maintenance of a sense of the whole.
