The Peak Series / Visiondivision


90 m2 - exterior

Just in time for the summer, Visiondivison‘s new pre-fab housing series is geared toward accommodating summer time guests in a flexible, yet compact space.  Pyramidal in shape, the house features a playful facade that is climbable, affording each guest his own entrance hatch that can be reached from the outside.

More images and more about the houses after the break.

Organized in three floors, the middle level – known as the “sleeping mezzanine” – is sandwiched between an open social first floor and the upper floor containing the bedroom and bath.

The house, which will be available for order later this summer at Sommarnöjen, can be purchased in two different size: 45m2 and 90m2.  The smaller model contains one master bedroom and can accommodate 6 guest beds on the sleeping mezzanine, whereas the larger model can hold double the number of guests and the upper level features a large bathroom between two master bedrooms.

The architects see the housing model as being adaptable to a number of variables, such as size or place.  Although it will first be launch in Scandinavian countries, the line will  be modified for different countries, and will also be “adaptable upon request”, perhaps as a vessel or for a larger scale, such as a summer camp.

“This is a series of pre-fabricated summer houses that allows a great portion of social life on a relatively small space,” explained the creators.

    Ok, but ladders?? Your grandma has to go climbing ladders to go to the bathroom. No window on the sides on the first floor. If you orient the building with one of the windows directly facing the south, the other big window will face directly north, which isnt ideal if at least in the nordic countries.
    Cool concept though.

    Why do you need a triangular house to jump through the window ? It’s just a nice skin grater ! too steep to climb, and too shallow to jump and hope you won’t kill yourself landing on the roof…
    Otherwise it’s a nice and fun concept.
