ARTICLE 25

Article 25 was appointed by Jubilee Action (now Chance for Childhood) to assist in the delivery of a centre for the education and rehabilitation of former child soldiers aged between 9 and 13, and other children abducted by the LRA. The overall layout needed to be a secure environment for abductees, and conducive to rehabilitating and reintegrating them to normal life. The centre is now complete and for an insight as to how it is helping the local community, please view the video on the project here.

MICHAEL HADI ASSOCIATES

MHA has enjoyed nearly 20 years of successful collaboration with Henning and his strong team on over a dozen built schemes and many others both un-built and in progress.

 

The design processes have variously been studies of place, materiality and people with a constant backdrop of beautifully legible and informative models.

 

We’re proud to have worked with HSA on their award winning designs and particularly proud of the positive (and in the case of the Patong project life changing) benefits the built projects bring to users and communities.

SSAB SWEDISH STEEL

As a finalist for the RIBA House of the Year Award and the World Architecture Festival Award, architect Henning Stummel’s “Tin House” has received a lot of attention lately. One main reason is the use of the color coated product GreenCoat PLX BT, from SSAB, in both the roof and façade.

The Tin House features a patented, Bio-based Technology (BT) coating that uses natural rapeseed oil instead of fossil based oils, which are traditionally used. GreenCoat products deliver architects and builders with premium Nordic quality steel, recognized worldwide as one of the best steels available on the market. GreenCoat also offers the greenest product portfolio for exterior building applications – and an innovative platform for creating award-winning constructions.

THE ROOFLIGHT COMPANY

In order to allow more natural light and ventilation to enter the Tin House pavilions Henning Stummel felt that the best solution would be a series of rooflights – one sitting on the top of each roof. Inspired by Corbusier’s Light Tunnels, he comments “Rooflights were part of bringing the project to life. Top light is very effective; it can change your mood. From having bright white light during the day to seeing the stars at night, top light changes all the time. It really brings space to life.” He approached the Rooflight Company with an idea of six bespoke trapezoidal rooflights each of a different size and with an individual baseplate design to fit the geometric shape of each pod roof. Working closely with the architect, the Rooflight Company’s design team the Rooflight Studio detailed each of the requirements for both the architect and the individual pod. The result was a design partnership between architect and supplier which Henning Stummel felt he would not find elsewhere.
