From the architect. The house in Stocksund is a thin block with cut-outs for light, double-heights and a roof terrace. Using the full width of the property it separates the front yard facing east from the garden in south-west. Through its position on the site, the house is experienced almost exclusively at an frontal angle, and appears as if just a line, a wall with a certain depth to fit in space for living.

The shallow block provides spaces that can introduce light from several directions. This is enhanced by the two double-heights that also guide views diagonally through the interior. The plan is simple: entrance and stairs fits into one box on ground level, a central passage on the upper floor gives access to bedrooms. The interior is one continuous space in two levels. As a result, movement through the house is characterised by visual shortcuts, spaces and activities overlap.

The main structure is in situ cast concrete, which is exposed in the cantilevered entrance canopy, only seven centimetre thin. By using a system with the thermal insulation as form work, costs have been reduced to not more than a standard type house. The interior is finished with white plaster, all floors and wooden details are white ash.

Facades are stained black 18 mm plywood panels (6/9/1200x900mm), mounted in layers on a slowly grown pine framework (50x150mm).

this is a COPY of Herzog and DeMeuron, the Object is "photostudio frei / weil am rhein" and it was build in the 80's, they used plywood as one of the firs ones in europe!!

great exterior. i like the choice of ply rather than something with a less textured surface. i feel the interior does not live up to the outside though, since it is a little bland and hotel-like.

Beautiful house. There is a great balance and composition of the facades. I love the limited material palette that unifies the building as a simple form in the landscape. The interiors are also simple and elegant. Wonderful design!
