A Modern House in Nature

A Modern House in Nature | BOCA NO TROMBONE! | Scoop.it

Located about 90 minutes north of Montreal, Spahaus was built by YH2 on the banks of Lac Supérieur (Lake Superior) on a mountain that once housed a religious congregation. In its place, an innovative new approach is being built to help integrate modern architecture into a natural environment. Developers hired YH2 to design the new series of residences to be situated on the northern side of the Mont-Tremblant ski resort in hopes of attracting a new generation of design loving homeowners. Instead of traditional log-style cabins or cottages, they’ve taken a different approach with the first design, name Spahaus, which marries wood and concrete, and boasts amazing panoramic views of its lush location.

Kiruna City Hall in Northern Sweden by Henning Larsen Architects

Kiruna City Hall in Northern Sweden by Henning Larsen Architects | BOCA NO TROMBONE! | Scoop.it

The sustainability concept for the new city hall in Kiruna takes its starting point in Henning Larsen Architects' method, ‘Design with Knowledge’. The method is about reducing and optimising a building's energy consumption as early in the design process as possible.

The project's daylight strategy is linked to the circular facade and ribbon windows. The material and design of the windows ensure daylight reflects into the offices located along the outer facade. At the atrium, the white surfaces of the roof structure and the bright surfaces of the building's interior ensure optimum daylight conditions.

The materials list for the project describes the goals of reducing the environmental impact while at the same time ensuring good working conditions during and after construction.

Tea Houses by Swatt Miers Architects

Tea Houses by Swatt Miers Architects | BOCA NO TROMBONE! | Scoop.it

The Tea Houses are places where one could retreat into nature- there are three, each with its own purpose: meditation, sleeping and ‘visioning’ or creative thinking.


Each tea house is designed as a transparent steel and glass pavilion, hovering like a lantern over the natural landscape. Cast-in-place concrete core elements anchor the pavilions, supporting steel channel rim joists which cantilever beyond the cores to support the floor and roof planes. With its minimal footprint, the design treads lightly on the land, minimizing grading and preserving the delicate root systems of the native oaks.

My humble glass and wood greenhouse is my go to Tea House. Everyone needs a personal place to quietly be. And tea is always recommended.

Stunning Modern Building Breathes New Life Into Bergen's Historic Fish Market

Stunning Modern Building Breathes New Life Into Bergen's Historic Fish Market | BOCA NO TROMBONE! | Scoop.it
A local fish market in Bergen has been transformed by Edel Biesel Arkitekter into a beautiful modern space that harks back to the city's heritage.

Completed in 2012, the renovation carefully balances the site's historic heritage with its contemporary use. The project is titled “History Continued," and it honors these principles by telling the story of the site while creating a symbol of modern architecture in the center of the city.

An angular, daylight-filled “floating” volume and glass wall on the ground floor provides a view out through the market hall. The building’s transparent facade provides shelter from wind and rain, but on beautiful sunny days the space can be opened up to connect market activities outside to those occurring inside.
