Previously featured in Thisispaper Stockholm-based architectural practiceTham & Videgård Arkitekter realized another splendid housing implementation.
House on Krokholmen is situated in Stockholm's outer archipelago, among the picturesque primal landscape with windswept dwarf pines and soft mountain outcrops. As the architects explain: "We proposed a two-part plan. Through a central wall holding the fireplace, a narrow opening gives access to bedrooms, bath and storage, that are oriented to the forest in the west."
"The large family room with kitchen and entrance could thus face out towards the sea with daylight and view in three directions. A screen of wood and glass runs around the house and unite interior and exterior spaces on a base of in-situ cast concrete. The living room opens up through large sliding doors onto three terraces, one of which is sheltered from the winds and facing south and one is completely open to the water to the east. The building section with a unifying arcuate roof creates the spatial quality of the interior but also defines the entire character of the building," they comment.
