Vandkunsten Architects: Housing
Anne-Mette Manelius, Michelle Lange, Graphic Design Astrid Kaspersen, Signe Sofie Nørgård
With a portfolio of hundreds of housing projects, Vandkunsten Architects is renowned for designing quality spaces for affordable living. This volume is part of a series about projects by the Danish firm that are representative of its work throughout the years. Ten ongoing or recent projects are selected that feature social, minimal, exclusive, and quite ordinary settings in which people live, ranging from container residences and social housing to luxury living in Oslo Fjord. Modest budgets call for efficient construction techniques, yet the office pursues maximum architectural freedom in its designs, whether using prefab timber-frame box modules, solid wood, or concrete elements.
