We wanted to revisit a previous post we did about our Favorite Scandinavian Design Blogs back in January. We had a lot of great new Scandinavian design blog suggestions and wanted to add some of the ones you shared in the comments, and a few more of our favorites as well in Round 2!
So here they are, starting from the photo above in no particular order:
Feel free to add these to your bookmarks bar and let us know if there’s any more great Scandinavian design blogs that we missed?
This beautiful building designed by London-based firm Haworth Tompkins resides in the Suffolk County in the UK. The building was built as an extension campus for Aldeburgh Music and is used by artists in residence and by musicians as well as a rehearsal or performance space and for meetings and temporary exhibitions.
“The new form of the building expresses the internal volume of the Victorian structure as a Cor-ten “lining” – which is also known as weathered steel.
We love the sharp, modern lines of the new building in contrast with the antique brick of the original building.
We also love the rusty/copper color of the new building and how it fits so well with the other buildings on the campus.
A large north roof window provides light for the artists and a small mezzanine platform with a writing desk incorporates an open corner window that gives long views over the marshes along the sea (see below).
The interior is a light spruce plywood that looks great with the contrasting black steel accents.
The architecture firm kept as many original characteristics of the old building as possible when designing. Decaying existing windows were left alone and vegetation growing over the dovecote was protected to allow it to continue the natural process of ageing and decay.
Once complete, the new welded prefab building was craned into position.
This beautiful Melbourne apartment renovation by Edwards Moore was designed to create more space by stripping away dividing walls and focusing on the concept of a continuous living space. The concept is called “Raumplan” which was developed by architect Adolf Loos in the 1920′s.
“Dubbed Cubby House, the project is filled with reclaimed materials and features transforming spaces that define multiple functions, and has reflective views that increase indoor natural lighting.”
We love the chipboard wood kitchen and huge floor to ceiling shelving space!
The reclaimed materials used in the apartment include limed timber, OSB, sisal, vic ash and white concrete for the flooring.
Glazed panels reflect the natural light coming from the skylights above and the glass divider makes for a more open space.
We also love the combination of the white ceramic tiling throughout the bath areas and the neutral color scheme with pops of color from the saturated wood.
