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…”

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. ”
We’re building a new home outside Sala, on a ridge gazing out over a forest and a lake.

”Sweden is a cold place, a fact that is reflected in the nation’s literature as well as its architecture. Petra Gipp’s work, with its clean lines and preference for raw surfaces, is certainly part of this tradition. Her work shows us how, when done right, coldness can be comforting. ”
