tham & videgard arkitekter: garden house

stockholm based practice tham & videgård arkitekter completed ‘garden house’, a single family residence in coast of mälaren, södermanland. clad with a wooden lattice for climbing vegetation, the dwelling is conceived as an integrated vertical addition to the garden, where indoor and outdoor spaces gradually blend and interact.

 

positioned along a steep slope, the building’s footprint assumes the boundary of its triangular site. due to the elimination of a north facing facade, sunlight is capable of reaching all three facades, helping plants climb the encompassing trellis. the screen intermittently overlaps windows providing additional privacy to inhabitants. a roof terrace opens to fresh air and views of nearby lake mälaren and surrounding hills.
