Claesson Koivisto Rune Architects have designed the Fagerström Home in Edsviken, Sweden.
From the architects
The shopper had split his backyard city set of living in two and moved the passe dwelling to the one. The assorted had a more embedded set, including a tall passe oak tree in the guts.
The injurious building allowance had to be fully exploited in express to obtain a mammoth ample dwelling for the rising family. The stipulated distance to the property line obviously restricted the positioning from the perimeters, whereas the prefer to shield the passe oak tree blocked the guts.
The bent L-form stems exclusively out of the zoning regulations. The particular bend offers the dwelling an interior spatial float that may perhaps per chance well were damaged if we’d chosen a titillating corner. The curving obviously also makes for an iconic and sculptural exterior – something that the shopper particularly requested.
Yet another distinctive characteristic is the facade coloration. Vertical boards are painted in assorted Falun pink shades. An irregular transition from ocher (wide boards) to darkish pink (slim boards) occurs from the bedroom raze to the lounge raze. The foundation for the coloration combination became taken from the Swedish formative years’s book ‘The set’s the Expedient Uncle’s Hat? ‘.
The dwelling has two floor in its enormous raze. That’s where you accumulate bedrooms etcetera. Within the 2d decrease raze, the greater floor terminates with a balcony facing the within lounge with its excessive ceilings. The roof has a diagonal, pitch; from one raze to the assorted and besides backwards. This skews the dwelling’s gables but besides makes for the fixed changing of room geometry as one moves through the dwelling.
The dwelling’s waistline homes the kitchen and, in the support of a bookcase, stairs. The kitchen thus is highly extra special open whereas the steps as much as the more private areas are more to the facet. With its gradual climb, the steps offers a you a feeling of ‘proceeding’ barely than strolling between phases.
All openings / glazing is fastidiously placed so as that visibility from neighbours is refrained from. This also creates a feeling that the dwelling is located in a bunch a ways more in moderation populated than the dwelling basically is. As if it became factual the dwelling and the exterior.
As a replacement of a bigger number of ragged dwelling windows, the closing placements are generously glazed. To illustrate, the lounge is exclusively glazed toward a conservatory. As an open air extension of the lounge.
The entrance floor is manufactured from Carrara marble. The tiles are laid perpendicular to the principle facade, even where the room bends (fancy a fan). An integrated blood-pink bookcase and staircase flows into an equally blood-pink wooden floor upstairs. The loos are tiled (floor, walls and ceiling) with assorted patterns from Marrakech Invent’s sequence by Claesson Koivisto Rune.
We even handed the dwelling as if it designed itself; that it became neither in particular weird or coarse. However everyone else evidently did not agree. When the dwelling became done or virtually about done three vehicles drove into the concrete blocks placed on the avenue actual open air to raze excessive flee in the dwelling. Three drivers, three assorted cases, who may perhaps per chance well not shield their eyes on the facet street.
