‘house for mother’ by förstberg arkitektur och formgivning (FAF), is located in linköping, sweden, and is part of the linköpingsbo 2017 housing exhibition. the dwelling is divided into two parallel volumes slightly shifted from each other, thus creating spaces both in front of and behind the building. oriented to a park in the north, and an alley in the south, the two adjacent gables emphasize the overall theme for the area in general: narrow plots and a variation of housing types. the first form contains the kitchen, dining room and living room, with the bathroom and laundry room housed in a smaller cabin within the structure. the second volume, partly in two levels with a less inclined roof, accommodates  the bedrooms and a small studio. the façades and roof are covered with raw, corrugated aluminum in juxtaposition to the warm interior with an exposed timber structure and walls lined with plywood. the polished concrete flooring folds up along the perimeter of the building and transforms into a bench and shelf.

  • Nice project, took me a second to realise they’re renders, will be nice to see photos of the finished project for comparison, plan & section can be viewed on their website, looks like plenty of insulation allowed in there so not just for summer.

  • this cookie cutter building method has been around for quite a few decades, the insulation can come independent or pre-lined into the sheeting

  • Must be for summer only. I see no provisions for heat and probably uninsulated. Is this correct?

    Lightmaker
  • yes, scandinavian design is still cool design, unique and essential

    peter dudas
  • looks wonderful, but where are the plans?

    raymondo
  • Gorgeous design. Although I think the cracking sounds from temperature variations of all that wood will drive you completely insane when you live in it…

  • I could live there! I would need to buy a LOT more books to cover that raw plywood. Great.
