From the architect. This house is situated with views towards the sea between the branches of the surrounding pine-forest. The permitted aerial building lines define the plan and even the heights of the roofline.

While the exterior views are singularly framed by the window openings, closely related to individual spaces, the interior is treated in a more fluent way with overlapping sequences of space and light in section and plan. This duality of focal and flow is the theme of the building.

The exterior cladding of wooden panels is related to guideline of the window openings.

The interior is clad with OSB-boards, the floors are cast in concrete and partly covered with sisal mats.

The bathrooms are paneled with brushed aluminum panes and mirrors.

A vast collection of books will cover the walls and soften the acoustics. The owners claim that they sleep very well in this house.

and very awkward impractical use of bookshelf that looks over library (?) starting on the first storey without a ladder insight.

jubair Sideeque · June 23, 2009

How can one ever have the guts even to present so ugly interiors. It horrible. I pity the clients. I advise the to cover the walls with some fabric or paper.
