Swedish Design Moves
We participated in the exhibition Swedish Design Moves at Tessin Palace during Stockholm Furniture Fair 2017.
The exhibition was arranged by VisitSweden and curated by Form Us With Love.
Design To Last
On the 8/2 2017 the new exhibition “Design To Last” opens at ArkDes in Stockholm and we will participate. The exhibition focuses on some of the design world’s hottest issues: long-term, quality, production and materials.
A glimpse of the stunning view from the height in Fjällbacka, where we are building a new house.
Conversion and new building in Uppsala – invited competition
The old courthouse in Uppsala will be transformed into housing and this is our suggestion. Small alterations to the original building and an additional building create new space for people to come together.
We were invited to participate in the competition, arranged by Municipality of Uppsala.
New extension to the Old Court House in Ystad
Petra Gipp Arkitektur participated in a competition for a new extension to the Old Court House in Ystad, arranged by Ystad municipality.
Petra Gipp writes about Markuskyrkan by Sigurd Lewerentz in the new publication Reminiscence.
” Markuskyrkans kontext består av en låg förortsbebyggelse och en orörd natur där den kraftfulla skulpturala tegelvolymen skapar tydliga inre och yttre rum. Murarnas massiva materialitet står i kontrast till de ljusa skira björkarna, de enskilda tegelstenarna vävs samman med naturen…”
Best wishes for the holiday season!
During 2016 we worked all over Sweden, we basked in sun and architecture at the biennale in Venice and built us our very own photo studio. We have been awarded with prestigius prizes, worked with phenomenal people and cast 103 models. In 2017, we will cast poetry and prose.
Sundbyberg – competition
We participated in a competition organized by the City of Sundbyberg. Rosengatan / Tulegatan will be developed with a new residential building.
Petra Gipp is awarded with Stora Formpris – architect of the year 2016
The prize Stora Formpris 2016 – architect of the year, is awarded by Residence magazine.
“Guided by the belief that buildings are so much more than the sum of all the practical conditions, Petra Gipp have, with a strong sense for form and material, created projects that are just as much architecture as art”
Bruksgården – Lindéngruppen, Höganäs, in Arkitektur
An extensive article about our project Bruksgården in Höganäs, in the latest issue of the magazine Arkitektur.
“To insert new buildings in old environments is a matter of relating to the existing. Should one respect, contrast or harmonize? The new extension in dark grey Danish bricks, cast-in-place concrete and glass succeeds in all three at the same time. ”
