A wonderful example of beautiful simplicity – a corrugated aluminum ‘house for mother’ in Sweden, designed by förstberg arkitektur och formgivning (FAF)

‘House for mother’ by förstberg arkitektur och formgivning (FAF), is located in linköping, sweden, and is part of the linköpingsbo 2017 housing exhibition. the dwelling is divided into two parallel volumes slightly shifted from each other, thus creating spaces both in front of and behind the building. oriented to a park in the north, and an alley in the south, the two adjacent gables emphasize the overall theme for the area in general: narrow plots and a variation of housing types. the first form contains the kitchen, dining room and living room, with the bathroom and laundry room housed in a smaller cabin within the structure. the second volume, partly in two levels with a less inclined roof, accommodates  the bedrooms and a small studio. the façades and roof are covered with raw, corrugated aluminum in juxtaposition to the warm interior with an exposed timber structure and walls lined with plywood. the polished concrete flooring folds up along the perimeter of the building and transforms into a bench and shelf.

We are dreaming

Aurora Borealis in Swedish Lapland, popular, physical phenomenon, arctic poles, snow, aurora, light particles, electrons, atmosphere, north pole, Sweden, Norway, Scandinavia, colourful

Photograph of a beautiful curved band of aurora over the snowy Swedish Lapland. The phenomenon of  Northern Lights (also called Aurora Borealis) occurs when large numbers of electrons stream in towards the Earth along its magnetic field and collide with air particles. The air then lights up rather like what happens in a fluorescent light tube. The resulting colors of the Northern Lights reflect the gases that we find up there. The charged particles originate from the sun, and the weather conditions on the sun decide whether or not we will see the aurora. Photography by  Antony Spencer

Looking for attention

The Hyllie Water Tower is located in Malmö, Sweden, in the Hyllie district. Ever since it was completed in 1973, it stands 62 meters high.  Its elegant, science fiction-like shape was drawn up by architect Karl Ivar Stål from the Stockholm-based Kjessler and Mannerstråle architects (now WSP Sweden?). And although the water tower has a panorama floor in the top, I’d happily look at it from the outside!
