a winter garden design from

"Bright and airy", a correspondent has suggested that the new Kvillebäcken market hall, in Gothenburg, Sweden, would make suitable winter garden building for Port Royal.

The Kvillebäcken Saluhall in Gothenburg by Swedish practice Gustav Appell Arkitektkontor is a new market hall designed as an open and non-hierarchical public building comparable, the architect says, with a railway station or library.

This flexible space has three main entrances as well as a number of secondary ones so that the building is perforate to the surrounding street life.

The scheme was won in open competition and forms part of a new urban development, Kvillebäcken, with the market hall providing the link between the new buildings and the existing fabric around the local tram stop, close to the centre of Gothenburg.

At the entrance level there are shops and market stands, with restaurants and cafés at first floor level looking down on the busy activity below.

A final top floor forms a large, storey-height skylight. The profile of these three floors steps asymmetrically, allowing the afternoon sun to reach a new market square sited adjacent to the hall.

The building’s exposed pre-cast concrete frame is clad in the yellow brickwork typical of Gothenburg. The bricks are water-struck and formed to the thinner proportions of the Danish Flensburg format.

A series of special bricks with glazed ends draws attention to the English bond of the brickwork. The repetitiveness of the fenestration allows future alterations to form new openings or block in existing windows without changing the overall character of the facades.

The primary load-bearing structure of pre-cast concrete uses a standard system that has been adjusted to provide a refinement to the details, while retaining the simplicity of the ordinary panels.

How to attract birds to your garden
There are very few of us who do not enjoy the sight and sounds of birds in the garden. Even in the gray of winter, our feathered friends bring you joy and happiness as they flirt playfully about the feeder bringing color and excitement to our lives.
Like all wildlife, birds need reasons to be attracted to our property. Stocking a winter feeder or providing a few birdhouses or a birdbath is a good start. By adding a few basic requirements in the form of landscape plantings, we can attract and keep birds of many species close to our homes

  • Avatar Coco How can I encourage ivy to climb a vertical concrete wall?
    Jun 20, 2007 by Coco | Posted in Garden & Landscape

    We have tried to get ivy to grow up our wall, but it appears that the wall is too smooth and vertical. How best can I encourage the ivy to grow? I can dangle string or a net from the top of the wall, and also erect something from the ground up, but I can't (am not allowed) drill any holes in the wall. What do you suggest? Thanks in advance!

    • (thinking outside the box) How about glueing something up there? no more nails all weather should do it.
