Completed in 2010, the Nature Boardwalk designed by Studio Gang Architects introduced a pavilion and boardwalk to a pond site at the Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago. It also recast the area as a thriving ecosystem in the middle of the city.

Apelle: A Contemporary family home in Karjaa, Finland

Apelle: A Contemporary family home in Karjaa, Finland | retail and design | Scoop.it

Karjaa-based architectural practice, Casagrande Laboratory, has recently completed the Apelle project, a contemporary family home is located in Karjaa, Finland.

This wooden structure rests in a natural harbour- a sheltering pocket surrounded by bed rocks and trees. 

From the architects:

“House Apelle is part of nature. The surrounding forest has been architecturally articulated into a shelter for a family of contemporary natives. The house is in the forest as much as the forest is in the house – the architecture is a mediator between  man and nature."
