visiondivision: the peak series


swedish architecture firm visiondivision‘s latest project is ‘the peak series’ of pre-fabricated
summer houses which are available in two sizes: 45 m2 and 90 m2.

pyramidal in shape, each house fashions a wood façade with a gap between the boards,
allowing one to climb its exterior. divided into three floors, the middle level is
the sleeping mezzanine, where a large number of guests can be accommodated.
it is sandwiched between the open social first floor with a kitchen and living room,
and the upper level which houses the master bedroom with bathroom. each guest bed
can be reached through a private entrance hatch, that can be accessed from the house’s exterior.
the hatches also act as individual fire escapes and provide a nice view of the surrounding
landscape from one’s bed. the upper floor has hatches from the bedroom and bathroom.

45 m2 – exterior

the smallest house (45 m2) has one master bedroom at the upper level and a mezzanine level
which can hold up to six guest beds.
