The surrounding nature and the slope of the terrain dictate the shape of this family-friendly house with black facade. Breathtaking views of the sunny forest, space and uncompromising bold design were the starting point for the development of this house in Nacka, outside Stockholm.

This family-friendly house was created during a series of workshops with the client, where the different volumes were tested on the model and several field visits. The challenge was to locate all rooms on the same level, and try to fit the house into the sloping ground.




This resulted in a long, narrow house with black facade that sits atop the ground, hovering over concrete blocks on the rock. The movement around the house mimics the initial exploratory walks we had on site before construction. The master bedroom is placed where there is the most spectacular view.

The house has completely black facades to give a calm and uniform exterior that contrasts with the white interior. Inside the cabinets, lighting and sockets are inserted into walls and ceiling to give a cleaner look. The different functions within the house appear according to a hierarchy, moving from public to private, from entrance, garage, then kitchen, living room and further apart, bedrooms and bathroom.

In order to ensure energy efficiency, while at the same time creating spectacular views, openings on the south side are maximized and in turn those on the north are kept to a minimum. The total amount of glass follows energy balance calculations, along with a geothermal heating system and a home air exhaust heat pump, which fits the project within local energy standards.

Billdal, 20 km south of Gothenburg, is a community with a large amount of isolated dwellings, situated at a suburb distance to central Gothenburg. The main attraction of the area is really the sea. Here, the horizon is visible from the coast, while further north the vastness of the North Sea is obstructed by islands of the southern archipelago. Near the coast, but hidden behind the hill that partially eliminates the sea view, is the volume. The terrain presented challenges, with its difficult soil, and the large neighboring buildings. To offer good living conditions on the spot, the house had to adapt to existing conditions.




In the Japanese art of gardening, there is the expression, "shakkei", which roughly translates into borrowing a point of view. It is used to describe a process of capturing different visuals, mountains in the distance, nature nearby, the sky above and land and water below. It is a method used to make small, narrow gardens appear larger and richer in dense parts in Japan. In essence: capturing living nature. The situation at Billdal reminded us of Japanese monastery gardens - crowded spaces with only glimpses of views through the surrounding buildings. By consciously deploying walls and windows, these most attractive landscape ranges have been taken and made the most of. By necessity, this was the principle established in the project and allows occupants to feel living in the middle of nature, even with the lot surrounded by neighbors.

Approaching it, walk along a 15-meter path between two neighboring lots before reaching the house. When parking a car, a narrow opening captures the view of a large tree. The entrance of the house is evidenced by a 5 cm concrete slab that leads to the main door with a slight inclination. As you walk down the ramp you see the brightest central courtyard on the left, light filtered through a wall of spruce boards. This is another central part of the drama involved in Japanese gardening art. First sit down, then hold on and finally experience. Reaching the front door, the inner courtyard opens to the left.

The house has three levels, the top of which is rotated 90 degrees, maintaining the connecting axis. In doing so, the house turns its back on the neighbors. This is amplified with great heights and scarce amounts of windows. For the courtyard, a closer range is reached and the facades are fully glazed. Because of the complicated geometries, the detailing is kept simple, with a white wood facade processed in ferrous sulfate, with anodized aluminum frames.

The upper floor has three bedrooms and a bathroom. All semi-public spaces are located at the entrance level. These spaces flow into the courtyard through large sliding doors. The basement can be furnished as a separate unit or function as a recreation space.

The inner concrete slabs are precisely polished in order to obtain a shiny surface, requiring no other finishing.

Beyond the floor, the white-painted plaster dominates all surfaces. The natural central point of the house is the staircase where the whole building revolves around. At the top of it are large openings facing west, making the entire staircase look like a solar periscope bringing down the light.

Regarding the isolated construction volumes, the white wood facade material consists of 22 mm cladding panels on 22 mm slats. The wood facade panels are treated with ferrous sulfate.

House with White Wood Facade, Gothenburg, Sweden

Maintenance-Free Concrete Home, Stockholm Archipelago, Sweden






Project Lagnö House
Design Tham & Videgård Arkitekter
Area 140.0 m²

The setting for this maintenance-free home is the Stockholm archipelago, a slightly sloping natural seafront in the south, mostly open, with some trees and shrubs. Unlike other projects located on the more isolated islands we work on, with no car access from the mainland, this location was relatively easy to reach even with heavy transport. This, coupled with the customer's desire for a maintenance-free home, inspired us to look for a way to design it as an integral part of nature, where the weight of the material and the color scale connected to the archipelago's granite rock, rather than a light wooden cottage. The two volumes of the building are located side by side and form a line that defines its position in the landscape, on the border where the forest opens to the bay. When viewed from the north, the entrance presents itself as an opening between buildings, directing towards light and water. It is an outdoor space protected from rain by a sloping glass cover.




The character of the exterior of this maintenance-free home is derived from several transverse gable roofs, connected to each other, and like dinghies in a row, form a long pleated facade. This provides a sequence of spaces with varying heights inside and creates ambiences in the living room that spans the entire length of the main building. With a relatively small depth and a continuous sliding glass partition to the terrace, the space can be described as a niche in relation to the archipelago's external landscape. The small spaces are located along the north facade with access through a wall with sliding doors. They are illuminated by skylights that open and form smaller sloping ceiling spaces within the main volume.

Terrace, internal floors and facades are made of exposed cast concrete in place with plywood forms. The interior is painted white with wood in gray. A sauna, a separate concrete block with wooden interior, offers a secluded spot near the beach and the pier.






Tham & Videgård Arkitekter


“Architecture is about the future. A building stands for hundreds of years, so inevitably it is not only contemporary but also a form of continued history projected into the future. Seen from this perspective, all the ordinary circumstances affecting the conception of a new building or a new urban environment, are secondary to the lasting impact and quality of the construction: its long term environmental effect, its architectural integrity and function, its capacity to convey the ideas and ideals of society. The end result is the only thing that matters.”

Tham & Videgård are based in Stockholm, Sweden, and directed by co-founders and lead architects Bolle Tham (b.1970) and Martin Videgård (b.1968). Since the start in 1999 the practice has attracted attention for its experimental approach and innovative built works. Tham & Videgårds projects has won several national and international awards, and twice the Kasper Salin Prize, most recently in 2015 for the new KTH School of Architecture at the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm.

Other major and award winning works include the Kalmar Museum of Art (Kasper Salin Prize 2008), the Moderna Museet Malmö (for the Swedish Museum of Modern Art), Västra Kajen housing, the House Lagnö, the Creek House, and the Tree Hotel in Harads.

Tham & Videgård has gained opportunities to work abroad and is regularly invited to participate in international exhibitions; a monographic exhibition at La Galerie d´Architecture in Paris, the Lisbon Triennale, the 12th, 13th and 15th International Venice Architecture Biennales, the Victoria & Albert Museum in London UK and at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art in Denmark. In 2017 the Spanish publisher El Croquis presented the fifth monograph to date on the work of Tham & Videgård in issue no188 Dualities and Singularities.

Bolle Tham and Martin Videgård are members of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts and teach and lecture at schools of architecture in Sweden and abroad. In 2014-2015 they were invited guest professors at the PBSA Peter Behrens School of Architecture in Düsseldorf, Germany. Tham & Videgård have lectured at the Netherlands Architecture Institute, Rotterdam (NL), ETH Zürich (CH), École Spéciale d’Architecture and the Pavillion de l’Arsenal, Paris (FR), the Architectural Association (AA) School of Architecture, London (UK), the Royal Academy of Arts, London (UK), the Harvard Graduate School of Design (GSD) in Cambridge and at the IIT, the Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago (USA).

Maintenance-Free Concrete Home, Stockholm Archipelago, Sweden

Home with Glass Walls and Panoramic Views, Stockholm, Sweden






Project Villa Överby
Design John Robert Nilsson Arkitektkontor
Location Stockholm, Sweden
Area 250 m²

Set on a natural plateau, on top of a rocky headland, the house enjoys panoramic views of the bay and sunsets to the west. Gotland limestone at the foundation is worked like a massive pedestal, forming walkways along three of the house's facades under deep flat roof overhangs. On the seafront, the limestone-covered foundation opens onto a large terrace with a swimming pool and sunken seating area, providing shelter from the wind. The same limestone base forms the space that connects the entire house.




The side entrance of the residence has a solid facade wall, plastered and painted in matte black. The only interruption is a pivoting floor-to-ceiling door with a thin black-painted oak frame that filters out the light. The other facades are made up of an entire glass wall structural glazing system. Insulated glass consists of an outer layer of Optiwhite glass, reducing light discoloration, and an inner layer of thermal control glass to prevent condensation. The lower part of the glass frame is completely recessed and hidden between the limestone slabs, making the border between the outside and the inside virtually nonexistent. A hidden moat around this home with panoramic views, built of limestone-lined stainless steel, drains rainwater and snow.

The plan of this home with glass walls, a simple rectangular shape, is clearly divided into private and social spaces. The private space has bedrooms, bathrooms and closets, built around an open central area. In place of traditional doors, most openings go to the ceiling. Just turn a bend and you have the impression of entering a new room. The formative idea of ​​the residence was to create a clear and concentrated form, a striking contrast with the surrounding landscape. The presence of a concrete object, abstract for location, also amplifies the experience of the interesting tones of nature.

While agreement on the basic idea was reached quickly, the demands on quality, accuracy and attention to detail were an extensive job. Behind the clean lines hides a number of advanced technology systems. Tap water is extracted from the sea and treated in a desalination plant. Heating for the floors, pool and hot water is produced by a geothermal heat pump. Space cooling, called free air conditioning, is also pumped into the house through the stone shaft, meaning that all air conditioning is basically free of cost. All systems are operated by intelligent control and monitoring solutions using a web-based interface, controlled via the internet or a mobile phone.

Location Torekov, Sweden
Project Year 2018

In 2016 we were called to design a new home in Torekov, southern Sweden, a region well known for attracting people in the summer. The couple had recently acquired the land and used it for recreational purposes only during the summer. Although they spent much of their winter in Stockholm, they wanted to extend their use during the colder seasons as well.

The land is located on a hill surrounded by some neighbors and several trees, while the hill, in turn, is also surrounded by green fields. To the west, the terrain has unobstructed views of the Kattegatt Sea beyond the center of Torekov. First, the client was convinced of a two-story home with a large roof terrace and plenty of greenery. After trying different approaches and parties, we concluded that a simpler one-story home with flat roof overhang and with references to the mid-century modern would be the most elegant choice.




The simplicity of the floor plan and the palette of colors and materials used in collaboration with basic architectural principles makes the home with flat roof overhang an elegant building. The home is divided on social and more open spaces, and a more private and protected part. In this more social part there is the kitchen, the living room and the dining room. Although these functions are all concentrated in a single area, the living room creates its own space.

Operable windows surround this part of the home with flat roof overhang, and allow the corners to open to the terraces. Even on rainy days it is possible to sit in the living room with feeling of being outside. The roofing material is used both inside and out, which makes the roof look like a single element, supported only by a few points.

Culturally, Swedes like to enjoy the outdoors during warmer seasons, which makes the roof play an important role in extending the outdoor area, making it indoor. Extending along the different terraces around the house, it is supported by slender columns symmetrically placed along the facade. The rooms and service areas were placed at the back of the house, accessed by a common corridor. Two bedrooms share a bathroom, and their doors and windows allow a direct view of the master bedroom. This part of the house faces the street, and therefore has smaller openings and a woodworked facade.

Old Summer House Rebuild, Falsterbo, Sweden

Design Lindvall A & D
Location Falsterbo, Sweden
Area 260 sq m

Manufacturers Vola, Henkel, Jonas Lindvall, produced by Stolab, Architectural Solutions
Project Year 2013

This project was completed in 2013. It began as renovation of an old summer house dating back to the 1940s. The initial plan included annexes and modifications to the existing structure. However, due to building regulations that stipulate that the building remains the same - no change - the house has been completely rebuilt.

Falsterbo is one of the most popular tourist regions of southern Sweden, becoming densely populated during the summer. Although the land is within a residential neighborhood, one of the design criteria was to create a family home that offered privacy. This was achieved by placing the garage in front of the house facing the street. Visitors must follow the path that leads along the garage to access the summer house. Although the main areas have sliding glass partitions leading into the garden, tall shrubs cross the site, creating a boundary between neighboring houses.




A long, narrow corridor runs the length of the summer house, leading to the main bedroom and children's bedrooms. A playroom separates the children's area from the parent's area and the rest of the summer house. In the central part of the floor plan are the integrated kitchen, dining and lounge, which opens onto a west-facing patio. The main goal was to create a center within the summer home, a space that encourages social interaction.

To the north, a painted steel spiral staircase leads to the library, office, and outdoor terrace, creating a sculptural focal point against minimal architecture. With a skylight directly above and a sliding partition leading to a smaller outdoor terrace beyond the stairway, it creates a dramatic, light-filled area that was inspired by past winter gardens.

This is a single-family home on the west coast of Sweden, in what was once a popular holiday region but is now inhabited all year round. From the vernacular wisdom of the region, which is famous for its horizontal planked wooden barns, the 190 m² house is built entirely of the same material.

The project consists of five interconnected volumes similar to those of a pavilion, organized in a sequence. The children's and main dormitories are at the ends of the main common areas. Inspired by the traditional barn typology, it presents a more contemporary language. This is particularly evident on the inside. The architect created the rhythm from the depths of each volume. In addition, the architecture follows the topography of the terrain which, in a way, marks a difference in the sectioned areas. On the west side, the children's playroom and main bedroom are placed on a lower level.

The use of wood for the exterior facade was an integral part of the concept, as was the choice of materials used inside. The austerity of architecture allows materials to stand out without distraction. The master bathroom is completely made of Carrara marble. The goal was to create an opulent contrast to the simplicity of the untreated wooden facade. In the rest of the house, Pietra Serena stone floors in the living room and main areas continue beyond the windows, linking interior and exterior spaces. The residency was completed in 2014.

The building is situated by the sea in Höllviken, in the south of Sweden. The project consists of three buildings: a residence for the client, a garage and a small cottage for an elderly relative.

Life here is typical of a single family house, its proximity to the pine grove and the sea imply a close contact with nature. The fundamental objective of the project is to adapt to the place by creating environmental spaces with distinct haptic qualities.




The facades are lined with Siberian larch, while the annexes are lined with other varieties of larch panels. The structure is also wood. The floor is of Danish tiles, including the access road.

Kitchen, pantry and living room are arranged around a large central living room, which extends beyond the chimney to a conservatory with folding doors in both directions.

Designed by landscaper Anders Folkesson, the garden is inspired by the site in its undeveloped state with narrow paths leading through the undergrowth.

Mölle is an extreme place with respect to topography and landscape, as well as its history and aura. By the turn of the 1900s, northern Europeans were migrating to "Sinful Mölle" - where men and women were allowed to enjoy each other's company on the same beach - leaving a trace of eccentric and experimental architecture from the first half of the century. 20th century.




However, from this time on, experimentation gave way to conservation. Our shared ambition with our client was to reclaim Mölle's dormant architectural tradition by extrapolating it into the 21st century, providing a home for future generations suited to an open-minded family, and currently with a child.

The building expresses contrast and sensitivity to terrain and context. Its volume has been left low, without any elevation or sloping coverage. The terrace has a view of the ocean, but the building questions the convention that all views are oriented to the same view - the terrain has many qualities around it, with stone and brick walls, greenery, and a Old winery half-buried on a hill.

The shape of the building divides the terrain into different external spaces and gives a sequence of smooth internal spaces. Not immediately noticeable, the graphic form of the floor plan results in a constructed volume that is interpreted as a fragmented whole - from some striking angles, from other pure angles.

On the ground floor, a glass-enclosed cockpit space with sliding doors and full panels up to 7 meters long, the garden and its stone walls frame the interior spaces.

The upper volume is supported by a slender metal structure in an abrupt collision between glass and large wooden boards - a facade that is the first of its kind in Mölle.





Elding Oscarson


Elding Oscarson was launched in 2007 on a conviction that the unique combination of the founders’ architectural backgrounds would generate relevant, thoughtful, and needed answers to a range of architectural problems. The office has since established its place in contemporary Scandinavian architecture, where it has developed surprising architecture, renegotiated boundaries, and distinguished itself through a rigorous design process that spans from vision and concept to detailing and realization.

Intentionally letting their works span several fields, scales and building types, Elding Oscarson regards every commission as an opportunity to critically reevaluate conventions, to invent and to develop. While formulating answers that are precise and considerate, the office has generated great value for their clients, users, and for the general public.

Elding Oscarson have been awarded a number of prizes for finalized works, such as the highest Swedish honor in architecture, the Kasper Salin Prize. Their works in Sweden and abroad have been widely published.
