URBAN HOSPICE, COPENHAGEN NORD ARCHITECTS


Nord Architects has unveiled its latest design: a contemporary Urban Hospice intended to create a positive environment while offering support for patients in need of palliative care. Located in the tranquil setting of Frederiksberg, Copenhagen, the vision was to provide a “warm and protective atmosphere” for up to 16 patients. Kebony wood was recommended and was chosen to complement this setting and has subsequently been used throughout the build. The project was designed to adapt to the neighbourhood, presenting a combination of spacious views and privacy for patients. Incorporating both curved and linear elements, the design allows for an impressive functional layout, built around a private inner courtyard. Ref: 48380


TEMPORARY MARKET HALL, SWEDEN TENGBOM


APPLE DUBAI MALL , UNITED ARAB EMIRATES FOSTER + PARTNERS


The new store for tech giant Apple, Apple Dubai Mall, occupies a pivotal position in the city, alongside the iconic Burj Khalifa and the Dubai Fountains. The store, which spans over two floors, “embraces the theatre of the fountains” say the architects, with a terrace that is 56.6 m wide and 5.5 m deep – the first space of this kind created for an Apple Store. The terrace offers views of the spectacular setting and the choreographed display. The design of Apple Dubai Mall was described by the architects as “a celebration of the sun” as it utilises daylight to create ambience within. Reinterpreting the traditional Arabic Mashrabiya, innovative ‘Solar Wings’ shade the outside terrace during the day and open in the evening. Made entirely of lightweight carbon fibre, each wing has multiple layers of tubes forming a dense ‘net’. Following an in-depth study of sun angles, the rods were distributed in higher concentration where the solar radiation is the most intense. Ref: 88452


Scandinavian practice Tengbom has been awarded the Architizer A+ Award, Prize of the Jury, in the Commercial Retail category for the Temporary Market Hall at Östermalmstorg. 128 years after being originally built, Östermalm market hall was in dire need of upgrading and development. Throughout the reconstruction, the City of Stockholm decided to erect a temporary building where business could continue. Tengbom’s work, both with the temporary market hall and with the upgrading and renovation of the old one, is said to have contributed to the “increased vitality” of the area. Ref: 67827
