Nannberga Summer House by General Architecture 

Research, Architecture, Interiors


©Mikeal Olsson

Materialized by precisely joining individual elements that form a coherent unity, swedish General Architecture have built a house on an existing small granary for sale outside Borlänge


'Interior materials were selected based on availability and price: oak wood from the site, and plywood from the local building merchant. The openings in the outer walls follow the logic of the design, with large windows in the massive timber wall and standing narrow windows fitted into the module of the new framework of the upper floor. The project has, despite its small scale, served as a discussion of construction and architecture at our office. The use of an existing structure has also raised questions of the underlying structural and tectonic elements of the building tradition. Our ambition throughout the project has been to pursue and develop these basic architectural qualities.'
