We are pleased to present to our readers another unique project implemented by Stockholm-based architecture studio HERMANSSON HILLER LUNDBERG, whose work we truly appreciate.
New three semi-detached houses replaced an existing villa in a quiet suburb of Stockholm. The architects placed calm cubes of the added volumes in the rocky site, what creates a nice contrast. Architects described the project as follows: ”Each volume contains two dwellings.
The inherent symmetry is expressed and expanded so that each façade has a symmetric composition, and that over every corner symmetrical facades clash and create a free effect. The division of the facades into strong horizontal bands and vertical elements pronounce the windows as being generated by the building elements and therefore a function of their composition. Between the calm and ordered building volumes and the sculptural qualities of the exposed rock, a free but violent juxtaposition takes place. The buildings are clad with simple fir planks in vertical or horizontal orientation.”
