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.

Three Homes Take Advantage of Environment, Site + Terrain in Sweden

Three Homes Take Advantage of Environment, Site + Terrain in Sweden | Sustain Our Earth | Scoop.it

Waldemarson Berglund Arkitekter designed three identical houses situated on a steep slope in the mountainous north of Sweden.

Defined by wood and having a minimum impact on the environment, the residences were especially developed for recreational purposes. The layout of the houses is a consequense of the building regulations and a response to the topography of the site. The great scenery and the mountains across the Ĺre lake can be enjoyed trough the piercing windows.

Here is more from the official architects’ description: “A connection axis extents along the building’s long side, divided in four generously-sized sets of stairs. This space allows a view of the whole house from the entrance to the opposite end. Height difference between the highest and lowest point is 31 stairs, as in any other 1 ½ story house with two staircases. The difference, though, is that these buildings have 5 individual levels. The upper floors shelter the hall, two bedrooms, bathroom and sauna, and the two bottom levels accommodate the kitchen and the living room, with a terrace facing south“.
