Two New Houses for sale by Henry Nielsen

For sale at Residence. 200 , for sale at 22 000 000 SEK (!).

And a slightly smaller, for a not-so-much-smaller-price: 70 m² for 12 000 000 SEK (!!). From Bjurfors

It is expensive to live in the archipelago.

Unorthodox planning of single-family homes seems to have been the mark of this mysterious architect. Henry Nielsen, or Henry Haubro-Nielsen, as he is sometimes reffered to, caught my attention when this house went up for sale. This is another house I found by him.

Röda raden

Real estate agent Tradition is selling this amazing house in Stockholm. Terrace houses are something of a Swedish tradition, but this one is qute different. Built in 1965 by ELLT Arkitekter, "Röda Raden" ("The Red Row") is very modern with an incredibly smart floorplan, creating a living room with high ceilings and large windows, and seperarating the bedrooms to the upper level. At the same time, the house is painted Falu rödfärg, making an interesting link to tradition, rare for its time.

Some pictures by Joachim Beliaeff.

The traditional swedish red colour was recently used by Tham & Videgård on their Karlsson house from 2004.

Good-looking Kitchen

... And a cozy house alltogether.

The Phaeno Science Center

Like a ship of concrete, the Phaeno Science Center in Wolfsburg by Zaha Hadid recalls the brutalism of the seventies.
