Vicem Residences by Emre Arolat Architectsare are located on a rocky tip along the coastline in Mugla, Turkey. The thick stone walls integrate with the natural texture of the rocks and keep the inner space cool in summer and warm in winter, whilst wooden slatted facades control the intensity of the sun.

Oslo-based firm Rintala Eggertsson Architects has installed a series of wooden structures on a beach in northern Norway for Salt , a new festival being held in celebration of the Arctic landscape. The temporary, portable structures, inspired by fishing racks, are designed to display artwork and host musical performances.

Salt is situated on Sandhornøya, a mountainous island north of the Arctic Circle. Visitors to the festival can stay in eco-friendly beach shacks designed and developed by Joar Nango and architect Tone Selmer-Olsen.

The festival, which has just opened, runs for a full year, until September 6th 2015. Spin-off festivals after this are planned for northern locations including Greenland, Iceland, the Faroe Islands, Ireland and Scotland. Images: Gunnar Holmstad/ Rintala Eggertsson Architects
