Mexico - U.S.A.

An oblong volume provides a border crossing for pedestrians between Mexico and the US, and interrupts the endless demarcated boundary. A nine-metre high wall defines a no-man’s-land between the two countries. Within the white walls a grid of palm trees imposes order on a large, shaded garden. Pavilions for passport control and administration are spread around here and there, becoming part of the garden. The oasis is a point of reference in the vast Tex-Mex landscape, hidden within the open landscape by its walls. In all its simplicity it raises questions about the desire for the promised land.

H71a. Reykjavík, Iceland

H71a was a shop adjacent to the timber house at Hverfisgata 71. In 2001 Studio Granda converted the house into a studio, office and archive for photographer Sigurgeir Sigurjónsson. The shop, that had an unsound structure, was left vacant. H71a is a rebuild of the shop volume with an internal concrete structure and the reuse of existing surfaces and finishes wherever possible...

Markthal Rotterdam

Rotterdam has a new icon: Markthal Rotterdam. At a historical location at the Binnenrotte, next to Blaak Station and the largest weekly open air fresh food and hardware market in Rotterdam, the first covered market of the Netherlands was realised. Markthal includes a huge market floor on the ground floor under an arch of apartments. Its shape, its colourful interior and the height turns Markthal into an unique spectacle. Unique is not only its shape and size, but especially the way the different functions are combined. The combination of an apartment building covering a fresh food market with food shops, restaurants, a supermarket and an underground parking is found nowhere else in the world...

Fortress House. St Andrew’s Beach, Australia

This coastal house was designed as a literal interpretation of the client’s initial brief. They requested a very private retreat, anti-social, even unfriendly to the street, as a counterpoint to their sociable city lives...

Flipped House. Sydney, Australia

Initiated by the desire to contemporise and replicate a 1960’s dwelling existing on the site. The original layout was embraced, but developed with today’s approach to living. An existing rear bedroom wing was literally flipped and re-shaped to make way for a new swimming pool tracing the footprint of the former, with a luscious garden replacing the traditional yard. A core ideal within the brief was for a dense garden to engage with the internal living area. It evolved to become collection of secret, interconnecting landscaped rooms...

Located on a spectacular site the building establish conversations with its context, both near and far; beautiful landscape, particular rocks and vegetation and key location in the village. The building is to reflect its environment, both social and physical. At the same time it gives its users the space for their imagination and perception of the environment, built and natural, through the building in which they are found...

Three Footbridges over Hringbraut & Njardagata. Reykjavík, Iceland

The construction of a new six lane urban highway adjacent to the domestic airport in the heart of Reykjavík required a new system of pedestrian routes and three attendant footbridges. A two-stage competition was held in 2003 and the proposal by Studio Granda in association with the engineers Línuhönnun won first prize. The design consists of a circular core of post-tensioned cables surmounted by the thinnest possible concrete deck with stainless steel handrails. The structure rests on concrete filled stainless steel columns and minimal concrete landings. This arrangement allows the bridges to be curved in plan and section and tailored to each location without significant variation in the fundamental design...

KRIKASKOLI. Mosfellsbaer, Iceland

The school is intertwined with the landscape, the building grows out of the land and creates a shelter from the wind where the children plays. The school is a landscape, a landscape to experience, learn and create. A landscape which gives multiple possibilities for experiences. The students and teachers can travel through the school in smaller or bigger groups and find a place for every occasion accordingly...
