From the architect. The property is located in a residential area north west of Gothenburg, on the top of a hill, overlooking the North Sea. The shape of the building volume follows the existing topography of the site, aiming to creates a natural walk around the building as well as creating an inside flew between the rooms, emphasizing specific outlooks.

It’s a house for a small family with an an area of 168 square meters , divided on two floors. The entrance floor houses kitchen and living area and the upper floor; bedrooms and work space. The six facades are cladded with fine corrugated, powder coated metal sheets with window frames in coated aluminum. From an distance the building is meant to be abstract, like an icon of a house, approaching it, more physical and present, like someone near.

Do you know what type of window is used in the house

I will be depressed:)

right now, its "Scandinavian Architecture".
just replace the outer shell with THE blue-grey bare concrete with THE puncture marks. and leave everything else the same. okay, maybe replace the generous windows with 1' diameter round holes, and half a dozen 6" wide slits on the walls.
lo.... you will have turned it into "Japanese architecture"

I love this soooo much! I fell deeply in love with this house and design, great job. I just wish I had the money to buy/live there. Beautiful bright kitchen. And black walls are the way to go.

I can imagine kids drawing on the white wals with color pencils, and parents siting in the strange old personal furniture. This building is just a blank paper for family life to start... there is no furniture yet.

The magazin A10 declared in a feature article the contemporary swedish architecture dead a few years ago ("Arrogantly modest Sweden"). I am really glad to see these days works like this, picking up the droped red line and thinking the long tradition of scandinavian modernism further. I don´t agree that this is an anywhere-in-the-world minimalism. It is the little differences that make it so scandinavian: white interiors, so important and natural in a land, where every bit of light is precious, dark vertical oriented cladding, like the wooden cabins so tipical in this region. Yes,it seems radically abstract without the dirt of the everyday family-life, but that comes certainly, don´t worry. I like it, very much.

Great little house. I like how the core is used to keep wet (plumbed) areas together and articulate the rest of the spaces. I'd love to have my small family live there.

Are we human or are we dancers?
My sign is vital, my hands are cold
And I'm on my knees looking for the answer
Are we human or are we dancers?

It's a 168 sq.m. house. Not that small... So how about not so small family? Say two kids. Physically it is more than possible. But then what would've left of this sterile minimalism. I mean let's be fair and call it an experimental art (it is very cool art-object), but to call it "A HOUSE" is in my view an exaggeration.

Brian Frolo · August 17, 2010

A volume that mimics yet opposes its site...an interior that relies on yet opposes its envelope. Exquisite tension: http://bit.ly/cDBoBi

Douglas Murphy · August 17, 2010

Ah, just what we need more of, angular black houses with random flush windows. http://tinyurl.com/2cu9qlm

@archdaily #Minimalism. Very cool visually. But is it possible for #human family to live in such building? http://t.co/oehE4hF

Albert · August 17, 2010

I understand the crisp clarity of minimalism. I can appreciate the purity of lines and the drama of the contrasting colors. I can realize how extravagant and boldly experimental is such theoretical attitude. What I will never be able to get is how family (even if it's a "small family") can live here. Live meaning: eat, sleep, work, rest, make love.
Unless we are not talking about HUMAN family here :)

filoarch · August 18, 2010 11:20 AM

contemporary architecture is not always designed for people which need confirmations and soothing forms and spaces. ;)

L-dogge · August 17, 2010 08:08 PM

it is stark, but it's just not yet filled with furniture, clothes, and the dirty dishes...from the photos, it appears to still be unfinished.

I like it.

No me gustaria vivir en esta vivienda en Suecia, minimalismo llevado a los extremos. http://bit.ly/cKiUUc
