Landscape Architecture

January 18, 2012

At Hundven-Clements Photography we relish challenges. So when Link Landskap Arkitektur, based in Oslo, decided to conduct a study of their recently completed landscape projects we were more than happy to help. Landscape architecture has not directly played a prominent role in our core business previously and therefore had to be approached with extra care.

The primary challenge is that projects are often literally the walkways, steps, greenery or our cities infrastructure. So finding the right light to describe the projects was critical. Whilst a range of contemporary day time images focusing on human interaction formed the core of the documentation (which can be viewed here : Landscape Architecture Portfolio), the client was very excited by the more alternative night shots. Here is a small selection. Please let us know what you think.

MR concentrate on the high end design market for architects like Norman Foster and notable artists like Anish Kapoor.

Oseana Gallery and Cultural Centre

January 4, 2012

Councils across europe have finally begun to show more confidence in the growth potential of investing in architecturally brave cultural centers. This probably stems from the success of the Guggenheim in Bilbao and New York. Here is a humbler example from the West coast of Norway in Os. Designed by Grieg Arkitekter AS a fun and exciting building has been produced. The project houses a new gallery, concert hall and restaurant. Looking out on to the wild fjord it is the perfect location to enjoy cultural activities.

The interior design and branding was completed by the local design firm Fuggibaggi Design AS

Residential Property, Bergen, Norway

November 18, 2011

Beautifully placed by the Fjords surrounding the Nordic city of Bergen, the angular Villa TK stands proud on a hill top. A balance between wood, metal and glass has been carefully designed by Morten NedreƄs of En Til En Arkitekter AS. The Villa has been constructed to maximise the stunning views over the adjacent fjord, with clean eye lines opening up the space.

Lombard Street Offices

April 10, 2011

The historic offices of 6 Lombard Street stand in the heart of London City on top of Bank Underground Station. This dramatic setting is located next to the Royal Exchange and the Bank of England. Pringle Richards Sharratt Architects have been involved with many of the ongoing developments at this site for years. Providing multi functioning office environments that can be tailor designed when a company moves has been PRS main challenge.

The exterior received a face lift with some dramatic detailing on the lighting which automatically turns on just after night fall for a limited period to conserve energy. The ornate Georgian features have been emphasized while achieving a contemporary elegance.

The Cornish Mists

March 21, 2011

After 6 years off absence from Cornwall it was a great feeling to be heading South out of London at 4am. Cruising down the motorway, memories of my time as a student came flooding back.

With no real agenda other than visiting a few old haunts, feasting on Pasty’s and St Austells fine ale, it was a welcome break. The weather was not always on our side but that led to some subtle landscape studies.

Contemporary Cinema Design.

July 1, 2009

This is the latest completed project from the Norwegian design firm Fuggi Baggi. Using experimental lighting and structural techniques they have produced a stunning space that can be adapted for multiple purposes. At Bergen Kino the ceiling consists of drilled aluminum plating pre pressed in to a series of wave like structures. Independently controllable RGB lights have then been fitted, being RGB any desired colour can be created and even low resolution graphics can be displayed using the lights. The cinema resides in an old theatre which used to be double the height of the existing space.

I found the whole experience of photographing the space surprisingly relaxing. With long exposures of up to 5 minutes I really had time to appreciate the subtle nuances of colour and spatial design in the auditorium. Whilst tempted to enjoy a film in the space I decided ‘Bob The Builder’ was probably not the most productive use of my time! The rest of the Bergen Kino complex is due to be renovated over the next 3-4 years.
