Stunning Images Of The Psychiatric Clinic In Greenland

Scandinavian architecture firm White Arkitekter has unveiled plans to build a pale yellow psychiatric clinic in Nuuk, Greenland, which will frame views of the surrounding arctic landscape.

It will be situated just a short distance from the capital’s centre, sat beside the main entrance of the existing Dronning Ingrid hospital. The 3,300-square-metre building will also overlook a Greenlandic fjord, providing views of the country’s icy waters and snowy cliff peaks.

The building strikes the perfect balance between a calm, healing and trustworthy atmosphere and the natural landscape and the existing hospital facilities. Echoing the materials and colours of Nuuk – where hospitals are traditionally yellow – the architecture cuts an instantly recognisable figure from both near and afar.

Daylight is abundant in all patient rooms thanks to the large windows and generous height of this part of the building. Looking out the windows, patients have views of the dramatic landscape and the fjord. The rooms are spacious and offer good internal overview of the premises to provide safe surroundings for both staff and patients. Wood is the primary material used here; apart from being a long-lasting solution, wood is proven to have a calming and stress-reducing effect.

New Vancouver’s Towers Looking Like Jenga

Büro Ole Scheeren started a new skycreeper project in Vancouver, unveiling plans for two towers composed of irregularly disposed glass blocks. This structure, that will be situated in the West End and will be called Barclay Village, reminds immediately the game of Jenga which questions the rules of balance and stability.

“Stage Of Forest”: Futuristic Ski Resort Lookout By Meta-Project

“Stage of Forest” is a lookout and public space situated on a hillside between a forest and the ski slope at the Songhua Lake Resort of Jilin, China. Beijing-based firm Meta-Project was responsible for the project.

The site is surrounded by luscious greenery in summer and covered by an overwhelming white snow in winter. As is a delicate site for a ‘Land(scape) Mark’, one whose indefinite programming demands a careful degree of deliberation. The location and triangle shape of the ‘stage’ was only determined after precise examination and deduction of the site condition, to minimize the impact for the existing vegetation and to maximize the view on the platform. While sitting on the hill, it is facing the Songhua lake at a distance, who is famous for the rime in its surrounding areas.

The building combined rough materiality with its sensuous form. Seen from afar, the ‘stage’ is a dark, free-floating monolith in the landscape, with a heavy concrete ‘base’. Come closer, the reflection on the charred cedar shingles (Shou-Sugi-Ban) becomes faintly perceptible – even turns silvery with the changing angle of sunlight. After one meandering through the forest boardwalk and finally arriving in front of it, the chapped surface of the shingles and the wood texture of the cast concrete become tangible.

Atmos Studio Creates Amazing StairStalk Staircase For HIDE Restaurant In London

Atmos Studio has completed a monumental staircase made from laminated oak that weaves as the centerpiece of the Oliver Dabbous’s recently opened 3-storey HIDE restaurant in Mayfair, London. The stair’s design creates a plant-like structure that grows like an irrepressible life-force from beneath, bursting from the shadows of the basement towards the daylight above.

It twists upwards, spiralling energetically like a corkscrew, steps unfurling seamlessly from the structural stem-like leaves, while further branches similarly delaminate to form a delicate wavy balustrade guiding the guests carefully upwards. “StairStalk” finally unfurls at the 1st floor level, as if reuniting with its vast family of arboreal brethren in Green Park opposite – nestling just beyond the full-height panoramic glazing fronting Piccadilly.

Created by engineering firm WSP’s new in-house design studio and David Ajasa-Adekunle’s architecture practice, the project called Tetra Hotel is currently at proof-of-concept stage.

Each of the futuristic faceted pods, which appear to teeter on a tapered point, would be made from reinforced concrete panels.

According to the engineers the panels would be made from local materials and fabricated onsite, allowing the concept to be released in remote and geographically interesting locations.

Brutalist Breuer Building Owned By IKEA Could Become Hotel In Connecticut

IKEA is considering plans to transform a concrete structure by modernist architect Marcel Breuer in New Haven into a hotel, according to reports.

Local newspaper the New Haven Independent reported that the Swedish furniture company, which owns the empty Pirelli Tire Building, is in talks to convert it. The city’s economic development administrator Matthew Nemerson is credited as the source, saying that IKEA has settled on the idea for a hotel after discussing several options for the brutalist structure, including housing and offices.

“IKEA has not announced any new plans for the New Haven Pirelli building,” spokesperson Lethisa Bracy told the Independent. “We do not have any additional updates at this time.”
