placed in a clearing on the outer stockholm archipelago, swedish practice tham & videgård arkitekter has designed a family holiday home that unifies the site’s previously existing disparate structures. ‘house husarö’ is clad entirely with folded black sheet metal, shaped in response to the plot’s lighting conditions and potential sightlines towards the adjacent sea.

 

three glazed sliding doors provide access inside the two-storey dwelling, which is divided into an open social area at ground floor level, with more private living accommodation positioned above. at the upper storey, a skylight runs along the ridge of the pitched roof, underscoring the verticality of the space and subtly enhancing the secluded nature of the design.

  • great “collaboration” between contrasting materials of wood and metal; I really like the way it blends into the landscape without being too loud. Great retread!
