Apollogasse is a street in historic Vienna with turn-of-the-century residential buildings, characterised by muted ornamentation and plastered facades in warm light shades. In our design of a residential and commercial building in Apollogasse, we take the historical context as our starting point, but combine it with our contemporary visions. A key element - then as now - is the window, which is the focal point of our architectural design.
HafenCity in Hamburg is a popular new district that has emerged in recent years. A new 8-track secondary school and day care centre will meet the rapidly growing demand for education and care. At the same time, the school will be a meeting place for the local community and associations after school. KHR Architecture was one of 12 teams selected to participate in a closed architectural competition for the prestigious building.
Building Green puts the spotlight on renovation and transformation when it hosts a conference on sustainable transformation in Copenhagen on 25-26 October. Postdoc Cameline Bolbroe will share experiences from KHR's work transforming the listed Gråbrødre School into a modern residential building. The focus has included increasing the building's use value and longevity by involving users through a specially developed modular building system.
A fresh drone video from Nuuk shows how the "School on the Plain" is finding its shape. Four of the seven buildings are now closed, and the distinctive roof geometry is clearly visible. When completed in 2024, the 17,500 m2 school and adjacent daycare will provide room for 1,200 children.
KHR Architecture is one of the few companies in the construction sector to have received funding from the SMV:Grøn grant to strengthen its green transition.
New pictures from Nuuk, where 17,500 m2 of school and day care facilities in 7 buildings are taking shape. Morten Nøhr Frandsen has just been on site to supervise the new roofs, skylights and insitu concrete. Now you can feel the common areas and the proportions of the atrium spaces and start to look forward to the buildings being filled with life.
Together with Bo-Vita, Svanen Development A/S and Sandkjær A/S, KHR Architecture A/S has won the competition to create the housing project Kregmehusene for Halsnæs Municipality.
