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 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).

    该住宅位于瑞典 斯德哥尔摩 Stocksund,它的体型是一个带有洞口的薄块,两层高,屋顶有阳台。住宅把基地分为朝东的前院和朝向西南的花园。房子的正对观者,好像它只是一个具有一定深度的墙面,能够生活于其中。

    建筑内部的空间可以从好几个方向采光。住宅两层高的空间更使室内开放。这是加强两个双高地指导意见,同时通过对角的内部。 住宅的平面很简单:入口和楼梯在第一层的一个方盒子里,通过楼上的中间的走廊可以进入卧室。住宅内部是两个层次的连续空间。因此,在住宅内部视线通透,空间和人的活动可以重叠。

    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.
