Z House is a very exclusive house, located on the eastern coastline of Jutland, Denmark. Z House is designed for a family of two parents and four children. The minimalistic Z-shape of the house is a simple geometrical shape that solves all challenges in the project. Z House is a three level house with great outdoor terraces in 2 different levels. The unique view towards the sea is enhanced both from the living rooms and from the outdoor terraces. Ramps lead from the surrounding garden to the indoor areas. The basement includes garage, storage, wine cellar, game rooms, bathrooms and a large indoor swimming-pool area with direct access to the garden. Plan 0 includes the main entrance hall, a utility room, bedrooms, bathrooms, an open kitchen and a large living room with direct access to the lowest roof terrace. The top floor includes master bathroom, master bedroom with walk-in closet and a smaller living room with a fireplace. The top floor has a unique panoramic view towards the sea and access to the top roof terrace surrounded by a hedge of bamboo. In the central part of the house a large wall painting underlines the triple high entrance hall creating a great vertical connection through the house.

SOLAR ENERGY LAMP

energy-flower-board-1

The solar energy lamp is a multifunctional and social design for urban environments. The leaves of the flower have solar panels and can be turned towards the best sun position. The lamp produces its own energy and becomes a street light at night. The solar energy is also used to recharge electronic devices such as cell phones and laptops. The root structures serve as benches. Day and night people meet by the energy flower to relax and to recharge their electronic devices. In this way the non-social activity such as speaking on the phone is turned into a social act. People who recharge their cell phones by the energy flower show other citizens that they care about the environment.The solar energy lamp proves that sustainable and high-tech design can be beautiful. The flower as a motive stands in contrast to the urban environment and symbolizes something peaceful and poetic.

VILLA STRANDEN BY EVA HARLOU*

villa stranden eva harlou architects architecture denmark design

 Villa Stranden is located by the east coast of Jutland, Denmark. The architecture is an interpretation of the classic Danish house with roof pitch. The special shape of the roof and the displacement of the facade sections make a much lighter architectural appearance. To ensure privacy the villa has a closed facade towards the access road. Towards the sea and the great view the villa has an open and maritime looking facade.

EVA HARLOU* DESIGNS SOLAR ENERGY LAMP

lampe_1_101

This solar energy lamp proves that sustainable and high-tech design can also be very poetic and beautiful. The inspiration for this lamp was the famous Flora Danica flower engravings. The vast Danish botanical work Flora Danica, begun in 1761, consists of 3,240 engravings in folio of all the wild plants that grew in the kingdom of Denmark. My design is a modern interpretation of the dandelion flower. The leaves of the lamp have solar panels and can be turned towards the best sun position. The lamp produces its own energy and lights up at night. The simple shape of the lamp and the white look gives the lamp a light and poetic appearance.  Eva Harlou* is very much into sustainable design and buildings and we see it as our great responsibility to show that high-tech solutions and green design can be beautiful.

NATURAL HISTORY MUSEUM, COPENHAGEN

vis1_final

Eva Harlou* makes proposal for the new Natural History Museum in Copenhagen, Denmark.
“…Forslaget tager udgangspunkt i visionen om at forene ”Opmærksomhed, tilgængelighed, totaloplevelse og integreret energidesign” i det nye Statens Naturhistoriske Museum.   Statens Naturhistoriske Museum med dets placering i Botanisk Have skal være nemt at få øje på. I hele områdets periferi kan smukke blomsterlignende lamper ses fra den omgivende by, og nyt byggeri står som ikoner for museet og tiltrækker opmærksomhed.   Det er visionen, at museet skal række sig ud som en gave til Københavns beboere og besøgende, og museets tilgængelighed er derfor i højsædet. De nye bygninger ”Filmgloben” og det underjordiske ”Globens Samlinger” kan besøges døgnet rundt – ”Globens Samlinger” som en del af en døgnåben vandring mellem de grønne områder ved Rosenborg Slot, Botanisk Have og Statens Museum for Kunst.  De nye og eksisterende bygninger, som tilsammen udgør Statens Naturhistoriske Museum, forbindes af et enkelt stisystem, som løber rundt i hele områdets periferi. Stierne tager form af rødder, som udspringer fra de opstillede blomsterlignende lamper.  Museet skal give den besøgende en moderne totaloplevelse, hvor botanikkens, zoologiens og geologiens verden går hånd i hånd, og hvor såvel udviklingshistorien, nutidens forskning og fremtidens visioner folder sig ud. I både eksisterende og nye bygninger inddrages den besøgende i en varieret museumsoplevelse med fokus på, at den besøgende skal være aktiv og tage alle sanser i brug. Følger man museums-stien kommer man til den klassiske museumscafé, den højteknologiske ”Filmglobe”, den intime naturskole, de hyggelige picnic-områder, den åbne markedsplads, de elegante tematiske udstillinger, de spændende eksperimentarier og forskergården. Man bevæger sig ned i ”Globens Samlingers” forunderlige, underjordiske univers, og man bevæger sig op til fantastiske udkigsposter.  Særligt i nybyggeriet ”Filmgloben” og ”Globens Samlinger” er kontakten til forskernes daglige arbejde vægtet højt.  Det nye museum skal bane vejen for fremtidens bæredygtige byggeri, og alle nye tiltag i forslaget er derfor udtryk for integreret energidesign, hvor miljøvenlige, højteknologiske løsninger er indarbejdet fra starten af designfasen…”

EVA HARLOU* DESIGNS E-WASTE BIN, NYC

bin1

Eva Harlou* designs electronic waste bin, NYC.
“Be careful when you pull the plug! Recycle your electronic waste!”
The recycling bin is designed as a simple shape that suits all modern urban environments. The bin comes in black or white and is a locker system. User instructions on the bin says: You pulled the plug! Press the green button to open an available locker. Place your electronic waste as far back as possible andclose the locker door. If you fill up the locker please press the red button and the door will be locked! This is to protect the binfrom theft and/or tampering. Mobil phones and batteries should be placed in the holes next to this text. Thank you for recycling your electronic waste! The recycling bin is made of recycled polyethylene HD with a weather resistant construction and UV stabilizers. Handles and wheels make is easy to transport the bin from on place to another. The logo and buttons on the bin light up at night referring to electronic waste and giving the bin an almost futuristic appearance. The locker system with different sized lockers makes it possible to handle the electronic device with care. Throwing electronic waste in a normal waste container there is a risk of breaks and leaks. The locker system makes it possible to pack the e-waste rationally and makes it easy to overview the waste when emptying the bin. Further more the locks prohibit theft and tampering. When all buttons are red the bin is full! The wheels are removable and the bins are easy to stack on the waste disposal site. The bin has a modern look that appeals to many people. Touching the bin is like touching a Mac product – it’s smooth and gorgeous with straight simple lines, a nice surface, rounded corners, funky buttons and a shiny logo. You feel more special using the locker bin system than throwing stuff into a regular waste container. The bin itself refer to modern technology and electronic devices.

logo the 4th bin

Eva Harlou* designs electronic waste bin logo for bins in NYC.
“Be careful when you pull the plug! Recycle your electronic waste!”
The primary logo is designed to be both modern and easy to read. The electronic device is thrown into a garbage bin. The angel wings and a recycle-glorie refer to the logo text: “Be careful when you pull the plug”. What happens when your electronic device is “dead”? The secondary logo - the wire turning into a cardiogram and a globe - underlines the slogan and explains the ecological importance of recycling e-waste. Together the primary and secondary logos can easily be used on recycling bins, merchandise and in TV-commercials.

EVA HARLOU* DESIGNS “THE 4TH BIN”

header1

Eva Harlou* designs a logo to represent E-waste recycling and a bin to collect it for proper disposal or recovery

In 2005 the U.S. generated over two million tons of electronic waste; 250,000 tons from New York City alone. That figure is projected to double in the decade to come. These obsolete or broken electronics are typically just dumped in with regular trash, though most of this E-waste contains toxic components that leech into the soil and poison the groundwater. Although our collective “green” conscience has certainly evolved, our infrastructure has not. We need a place to safely and easily deposit our E-waste: The 4th Bin.

In response to this clear need, and to coincide with the upcoming changes to New York City’s law’s regarding E-waste, Valiant Technology is calling for entries in an international competition. Your aim: to design a logo to represent E-waste recycling and a bin to collect it for proper disposal or recovery.

Project coming soon. Stay tuned!

STUDENT HOME COLLEGE architecture eva harlou architects denmark copenhagen noerre alle interior design competition

This home for 50 students is located in the centre of Copenhagen, Denmark. The existing, old building is designed with a new, funky interior suitable for Danish and foreign students. The main concept is the circle that dictates all new interior and exterior design. The common areas are located in the centre of the building around a circular atrium that makes an open vertical connection through the building. The private homes are designed with a special feature - bookshelves with mirror walls that create great spatial effects. Using IR-technology the walls in the corridors are transformed into interactive touch screens connected to the students computers. Here students can communicate with other students even though they’re not in the same room.
