In Praise of Shadows Arkitektur , in short IPOS, is an architecture firm located in Stockholm. As the architects state in their practice there is a space for „the subtle, the slow, the small gestures, the private and the intimate grows”. To prove that we invite you to discover the studio’s House on the Height.
The house stands on an outer archipelago island, where IPOS introduced a group of new houses for the summer and weekend life. The project was dedicated to a family of three generations.
”The main house is stretched along the edge of a cliff offering a magnificent view over the ocean to the west. A writers studio in the north is separated from the large central living room with an atelier character. In the centre of the house a generous kitchen stretches out on an adjacent terrace. In the south part of the building a master bedroom department with bedroom and bath facing south and the low vegetation of blueberry plants. Guestrooms to the east,” as the architects standing behind the project describe.
The body of the whole complex was shaped from various volumes, juxtaposed forming a sculpted vivd whole, arising from rocky hill, blended with wild nature.
