The Håkansson Tegman House by Johan Sundberg

The Håkansson Tegman House by Johan Sundberg | Sustain Our Earth | Scoop.it

Johan Sundberg designed the Håkansson Tegman house in Höllviken, Sweden. Angled around an inner garden, the design rests on the tradition of the Danish atrium house from the 60s and 70s. Three small bedrooms form the northern wing of the house, while the western wing is a continuous sequence of spaces consisting of a kitchen, dining room, library, living area, and winter garden.

The outer walls along the streets are clad with clay bricks as a screen. The stucture is a steel-enforced timber frame. Windows and sliding glass doors are made from Schüco aluminum profiles. The front and garage doors are custom made from ammonium smoked oak.
