Levantis Gallery, Museum of Mediterranean/Medelhavsmuseet

Medelhavsmuseet (Mediterranean Museum) is a museum in Stockholm focused around collections of mainly ancient objects from the Mediterranean area and the Near East. Its English name is The Museum of Mediterranean and Near Eastern Antiquities. The museum was formed in 1954 when the Egyptian Museum and the Cyprus Collection were combined. The Egyptian Museum had been created in 1928 from artifacts collected in the 18th, 19th and early 20th century while the Cyprus Collection was the result of the excavations of the Swedish Cyprus Expedition in the late 1920s and early 1930s. The Cyprus collection in the museum is the largest outside Cyprus and of great scholarly value. A new gallery of Cypriote antiquities sponsored by the A.G. Leventis Foundation and designed by White Architects was opened in January 2009. Besides Egypt and Cyprus the museum also holds collections of Greek and Roman antiquities, Near Eastern antiquities from Shah Tepe, bronzes from Luristan and Islamic art.
The museum has been located in the Gustav Horn palace, Gustav Adolfs Torg, Fredsgatan 2, Stockholm since 1982.

The interior of the museum was renewed by White Arkitekter AB and innaugurated in 2009.

Gröna Lund: House of Nightmares

Next season the amusement park Gröna Lund in Stockholm will invite the visitors to the House of Nightmares!

Quote:
You are standing in front of a desolate and abandoned house. No one knows what is waiting inside, but one thing is certain – something evil is lurking in the dark. The nightmare experiments once conducted by the legendary Dr. Morphio have come to life and roam the hallways and rooms of the house. Do you dare step into Dr. Morphio’s House of Nightmares and face your worst nightmares?
In April 2015, the worst horror experiences of its kind opens at Gröna Lund. It will be a new haunted house where visitors themselves pass through the old dark house where horrific nightmares await.
The attraction has been developed together with the amusement park industry’s leading creator of special effects and animatronics, the Sally Corporation (USA), which has developed similar attractions at amusement parks around the world for over 35 years.
Exactly what visitors will find in the house’s various rooms will not be revealed. If you want to know, you simply need the courage to step into the house. Welcome!

Icehotel Jukkasjärvi 2014/15 (25th season)

The 25th Icehotel has just opened for the 2014/15 season in the village of Jukkasjärvi, Swedish Lapland. Carved from 1,600 tonnes of snow and ice, the hotel features 16 artist-designed suites, a bar and theatre.
Over the last few weeks, 42 artists from around the world have used 1,600 tonnes of ice and snow from the nearby frozen Torne River to create the 25th pop-up Icehotel. This season’s hotel features 16 suites based on concepts such as love and the changing seasons. Borderland, by Thomas Czajkowski and Eryk Marks, was inspired by the folk art that decorated typical wooden houses in eastern Poland, where the artists grew up. The carved wall decorations are based on traditional wooden ornaments that decorated the house facades.

Paradiset 19 - 21/Etaget | 10-13 fl | App

Paradiset 19 - 21/Etaget
Kungsholmen, Stockholm

A new housing project (107 flats) with some space for retail will be implemented in Kungsholmen, inner Stockholm. The height of the building will range from 10 to 13 floors. Status: laga kraft.

Architect: Kjellander + Sjöberg









Stadsbyggnadskontoret:

Quote:
Planens syfte och huvuddrag

Syftet är att skapa fler bostäder, en bättre gatumiljö genom inglasade och utåtriktade bottenvåningar samt en ny möjlighet att anordna en allmänt tillgänglig fotgängarpassage genom kvarteret Paradiset.

En byggnad i tio till tretton våningar med centrumlokaler i bottenvåningarna och 107 lägenheter föreslås. En fortsättning på den fotgängarpassage som föreslagits i intilliggande detaljplanearbete skapas. Passagen innebär en möjlig koppling genom det långa kvarteret Paradiset och att en genväg till tunnelbanan skapas. Passagen ligger på privat mark men utgör ett markreservat för allmänt ändamål för fotgängare. Garage löses under mark. Cykelparkering löses på gård och inomhus. En gemensam takterrass föreslås för att kompensera att gården är liten.

Medverkande

Planen är framtagen av planarkitekt Anna Hall, planarkitekt Julia Nedersjö och karttekniker Aino Virta. Från lantmäterimyndigheten har Sofia Henriksson deltagit och från exploateringskontoret har Monica Almqvist deltagit.

Kristallen/Lund City Hall

Lund city in south Sweden has a new City Hall.

Architects: Christensen & Co Architects,
Location: Lund, Skåne County, Sweden,
Area: 13500.0 sqm,
General Contractor: Lund Municipality,
Engineer: Sweco, Rambøll SE,
Contractor: Rekab SE,
Year of completion: 2014.

From ArchDaily:

The City Hall, also known as the Crystal (Kristallen), stands as an iconic frame with a profound social impact and an ambitious green profile, using only a fraction of the energy normally consumed by this type of building. The first step of The City Hall was completed in 2014 and hosts 13.500m2 of Citizen Service Centre. When fully completed, the building will have 25.000m2 of offices, conference facilities, a public ground floor and a green rooftop terrace that overlooks the city of Lund and its surroundings all the way to Denmark.
The jury of the Kasper Salin Award nominated Christensen & Co Architects for creating a building that links the distinguished historical city centre of Lund and a new public park with an original architectural idea in the continued urban development in the area. As well as creating a welcoming building that brings life to the area with its public program and dynamic facades.
The building volume consists of a pleated W-shaped plan that brings light, variation and playfulness into the volume. The building appears facetted, constantly changing from glass and solid panels, with a broken down scale, thereby integrating the relatively large building into the urban structure of Lund. The sculpted shape and varied facades facilitates an appearance of life and vibrancy, both internally and externally. Behind the building’s open and transparent west façade is a full-height atrium space, which draws in the adjacent park’s lush green atmosphere and connects all the amenity spaces across the floors. The space creates an open and vibrant area connecting staff and visitors.
The façade design is key in reducing the total energy consumption. All facades are oriented to efficiently utilize the sun’s heat during the cold season, and the climate screen is optimized to balance out heat loss and heat gain. North-facing facades are covered with smooth glass panels from floor to ceiling, allowing a maximum amount of light to fill the office spaces. The south-facing facades have dynamic solar-control panels, operating according to the amount of daylight, giving optimal light and shade conditions inside the building and creating a dynamic façade to the surroundings. The facades towards the historic part of Lund are of a more classic character, open and closed parts of concrete plates, giving a calm rhythm and dialog with the cityscape of Lund.
Lund City Hall is a sustainable building adherent to the Swedish Green-factor; Green-factor states that the vegetation and green areas of the site must be at least 100%. The buildings green roof plays an important role in cooling the building, storing rainwater and ensures that the building becomes part of the local ecosystem, supporting the biosphere already existing in the park and the area.
