Fyrstikkalleen // BREEAM, Norway

This award-winning design consists of three sculptural office buildings, that forms a cohesive architectural complex with the shared philosophy to maximize light. At ground level a communal entrance with reception and cafeteria welcomes users with a huge wide-open space, while crisscrossing transparent bridges connect each of the three office blocks.

The significant angled corners of each block create a harmonic sense of invitation, that ensures full outsight for occupants and the maximum intake of daylight. Fyrstikkalleen is built with a focus on sustainable design and materials that meet energy class A specifications. The project has achieved a BREEAM excellent rating. Another focus area is allowing for flexibility – in order to accomodate evolving trends in office layout. The importance of communication, collaboration and random social encounters are important themes here.

Basaren, Sweden

Located in the heart of Stockholm. Basaren is a masterpiece of both architecture and engineering, where two oval forms resonate through the entire design and construction of these exclusive city apartments. This building is particular unique because of its façade of transparent masonry, which is made possible by the Carlsberg-system. The devil is in the detail, and this is no exception; each brick used for the transparent part of the brickwork has two extruded holes that matches the shape of the two towered-building. This requires extra structural support in wall elements, lintels and beams – but in turn provides a quiet synergy and gives the building a light and airy feel.
