When the client met with DAPstockholm they wished for a solid, secluded house with a maintenance‐free facade, a sense of ceiling height and a master bedroom with the benefit of morning sun. They also wished for a solution where they could open up larger windows toward the scenery and have a sheltered space where they could sit and listen to the pouring rain. This resulted in a multi‐faceted house where the shape and direction of the different volumes are based on various factors such as the terrain, the light conditions, the views and the privacy. The volumes give the house seven different facades. This and the dramatic nature of the sloping site provide the house with a unique character.

Cut‐ outs in the mountain give space for the outdoor seating areas. In the south‐east direction, outside the SPA, one of these creates a significant border between the arranged and the rampant garden. The second floor is suspended above the entrance floor to shadow and protect the yard. Here the infinity pool, made out of dark concrete, make you think of a deep forest lake adding to qualities of a wilderness where the water runs over the pool edge. The facade of the souterrain is made out of slate and the stair from the carport out of limestone. Grass covers the roof of the tallest volume and the roof terrace where it is themed with spruce. The house interior also exhibit materials that are close to nature such as walnut, ceramic granite and marble.

“By using living materials the house will become more characteristic with age” says CalleSmedshammar, partner Architect at DAPstockholm.

Olá! Moro em casa no interir da Bahia a 120km da capital Salvador, minha casa foi construida a 7 anos no terreno de 400m com piscina porém sofro por ter condtruido em cima de uma antiga lagoa e sofro com as enchentes. preciso de um projeto para salvar meu lar. Minha cada é muito bonita porem totalmente desvalorizada. O que faço? vcs podem me ajudar. Iria ser destaque na cidade.
