C. F. Møller Architects placed first in a competition to design eighteen sustainable town houses for Norra Djurgaardsstaden, Stockholm. The town houses are part of a larger effort to convert the area of Norra Djurgaardsstaden into a completely high-profile environmental area. The architectural expression of the residences finds inspiration in the neighboring cultural center and Husarviken, which flows into the archipelago, and the Stockholm National City Park. According to C.F. Møller, “The project makes it possible to live a modern life based on sustainable solutions.”

C.F. Møller Architects just won a shared first prize in the competition for the new Opera and Culture Center in Norway, entitled Kulturkvartalet. This new Opera Center will house the country’s oldest opera in Kristiansund, the capital of the region of Nordmøre. The site proposes an interesting challenge as the new design must integrate two existing buildings with the proposed new urban center, and the most critical component becomes the shared urban space between the old and the new which will ultimately connect the Opera and Culture Center with pedestrian streets and a nearby park.
