Schauman & Nordgren Architects’ proposal for the extension for the Alvar Aalto museum in Ruusupuisto, Jyväskylä, Finland. We proposed a generous and flexible space that connect the Museum of Central Finland and the Alvar Aalto Museum. A wide ramp along the western facade of the extension connects the two museums seamlessly together.
On the staircase, one can sit and overlook the activity in the shop or gaze at the beautiful landscape through the large glass facade. The tall and slender ‘tree-like’ columns that support the roof aim at introducing a sense of lightness to the space – as if the wild forest in the west continued through the extension to the eastern side and out in the park in front.
Schauman & Nordgren Architects has developed a series of handles called “The Boolean handles” for the design brand A.S.Helsingö. The series is conceived from basic geometries and distinct manipulations. By altering the basic geometries through a few precise operations
the handles perform as tactile and simple in materials such as brass, copper and chrome. The handles have recently been featured in the Finnish liffestyle magazine, Avotakka, in an article about Helsingö. The handles are now for sale in A.S.Helsingö’s online store: www.helsingo.com
Schauman & Nordgren Architects are proud to announce that they will together with Schauman Arkkitehdit Oy design the new pavilions on the main market square of Turku. Currently, two alternative sketch proposals are on the table and it is yet to be decided wihich one to continue with.
The alternatives were presented for an interested public in Turku last week. The city of Turku published the material on their facebook site, which has generated a lot of discussion about which one would be a better alternative. What is your opinion?

The Lalax boathouse is finally under construction and is planned to be ready before the summer arrives in the Finnish archipelago. The projects investigates the traditional archipelago boathouse typology and proposes a contemporary, subtle addition to the summerhouse setting on the island of Högsar, in Nagu. The new boathouse functions both as storage for small dinghies,
tools and gear during the winter as well as a recreational pavilion for social events during the summer. By using traditional building techniques, materials and colour palette, the building bridges the gap between the old and the new, the traditional and the contemporary. You can find some more images of the construction by clicking on this link, Lalax Boathouse Construction

Schauman & Nordgren Architects received an honourable mention in the “Kouvolan Keskustakorttelit” city centre blocks competition. The aim of the compeititon was to create robust strategies for the development of three urban blocks in the centre of the city of Kouvola in Finland. The challenge in the competition was to integrate the new mixed use development with the existing urban fabric and to establish a clear urban hierarchy that stitches the new and the old seamlessly togheter.
The plans were to include public and commercial functions on the ground floors and housing units on the floors above. A large underground parking facility was also part of the competition task. 70 ambitious teams from various parts of Finland participated in the open competition that was organized by the City of Kouvola and Kiinteistö Oy Torinreuna.

We work with different scales and functions since timeless architecture is always experienced on several different levels. Our clients share our vision and fully invest in our collaborative process. Together we create places of inclusion with experiences that are felt for generations.
