House K / Tham & Videgård Hansson Arkitekter

Architects: Tham & Videgård Hansson Arkitekter
Location: Stocksund, Stockholm, Sweden
Architects in charge: Bolle Tham & Martin Videgård Hansson
Constructed Area: 285 sqm + 25 sqm of roof terrace
Project year: 2004
Client: Private
Photographs: Åke E:son Lindman

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 , 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).

    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!

    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.
