* Architecture: Forest Stair in Stokke by Saunders Architecture

Posted by the editors on Sunday, 27 May 2012

Architecture: Forest Stair in Stokke by Saunders Architecture: “..This sculptural installation was designed for the Sti For Øye sculpture park in Stokke, set amongst the Vestfold oak forest to the south of Oslo. Working alongside landscape architect and professor Rainer Stange in order to create the infrastructure for a woodland walk past a series of artists’ installations, Saunders proposed a series of steel and wooden walkways set at the highest point of the site, looking east towards Slottsfjellet, or castle rock. The design plays with the idea of an artificially facilitated foray up above the forest floor, an elevated viewpoint that would otherwise be unavailable to the visitor..”  Lovely, curious, simple..

* Residential Architecture: Bridge Studio, Fogo Island by Saunders Architecture

Posted by the editors on Saturday, 28 April 2012

Residential Architecture: Bridge Studio, Fogo Island by Saunders Architecture: “..dramatically located on a steep hillside overlooking the calm waters of an inland pond..From the side elevation, it ap- pears as a windowless wood-clad parallelogram, hovering above the landscape, propped up by four piers and connected by a sixteen-foot bridge to the adjacent hillside. As one approaches the three hundred and twenty square foot studio, it becomes more transparent – with a generous glass entry and a large square window at the other end of the room..Viewed from the glass entry, the ceiling from the entry slopes up to the top of a large picture window at the opposite end of the room. The picture window’s sill is flush with a built-in desk, the perfect place to write and contemplate the view. To mirror the sloped ceiling, the floor of the Bridge Studio is composed of two levels..”  Inspired, vernacular goes contemporary..

* Residential Architecture: Squish Studio, Fogo Island by Saunders Architecture

Posted by the editors on Saturday, 28 April 2012

Residential Architecture: Squish Studio Fogo Island by Saunders Architecture: “.. white angular form, sited on a rocky strip of coastline..offers sharp contrast to the traditional vernacular architecture of the nearby picturesque community..The approach to the front entry of the studio is dramatic, as the most southern end of the studio rises twenty feet above the ground, in sharp contrast to its most northern tip that measures only half that dimension..The compact, trapezium shaped plan of the studio is augmented by the extension of the east and west exterior walls to create a sheltered, triangulated south entry deck and a north terrace that overlooks the ocean..Power is supplied by stand- alone solar panels, mounted on an adjacent hilltop. Both the interior and exterior of the studio, including the roof, is clad with spruce planks that are painted white..”  Astounding, distinctive form, solar energy powered..
