GRAD Arkitekter shared with us their proposal for a housing block in the now unbuilt area of Årstafältet, a southern suburb of . Once finished, this area will house approximately 10,000 inhabitants. To secure this variation, the city proposes that each block is divided in two halves, with a team of a contractor and an architecture team responsible for every half.  The basic design principle of their block is to shift and tilt four buildings in relation to one another, to create interesting views and a good flow of natural light.

On view now until February 9th, the installation by Swedish architect Gert Wingårdh at the Furniture Fair in suggests a church interior, with rows of high tables in front of an ‘altar’ where panels hold sway. In collaboration with Finnish illustrator Kustaa Saksi, their creative teamwork has resulted in a design that will set the stage for talks on design and architecture at the fair. Starting out from their own perspective while adhering to a shared vision, the entire dome-like structure consists of stacks of paper sheets that hang from the roof in a Venetian blind-like construction.

Marking the entrance to ’s inner city center, the City Station. Designed by 3XN Architects, integrates the station, a hotel, conference center, and apartments. The main idea behind the design was to create a building that gently adjusts to the area’s existing building in scale and expression, and which reinterprets a number of local Swedish design traditions. Containing a number of public and private functions, the building will contribute positively to creating life in the surrounding neighborhood.

Stockholm Stacked / Visiondivision

Our friends from Visiondivision have envisioned a creative solution to respond to ’s lack of housing.  While the city is growing rapidly, the pace of new construction for residences is quickly falling behind demand.  Due to this lack of housing, the core of has grown to be defined by expensive apartments, while the outer edges for those who can’t afford such prices.  For Stacked, Visiondivision responds to this segregated city by proposing a change in planning regulations to eliminate height restrictions on courtyard typologies, so as to utilize the urban spaces for efficiently and effectively.   After all, “Who wants to move to a city where it is impossible to get an apartment? Which companies wants to invest in a city where their employees may have a hard time to find a place to stay? Which exchange students wants to study in a city where all the free time available will go to find a small flat with a decent rent?” asks the firm.

Guinness Deep-Sea Bar / Jump Studios

London-based architecture practice, Jump Studios, recently completed the interior of a submarine for the first ever Guinness deep-sea bar, which recently plunged the depths of the Baltic in the Archipelago. Jump was asked to create an interior for the vessel (fitting a space approximately 11m2) that reflected the Guinness brand statement ‘Alive Inside’. And the solution was a fluid concept, constructed from GRP (glass reinforced plastic), that captures the feeling of being ‘immersed in a dynamic, flowing experience’.
