From the architect. The small guest house in the outskirts of Stockholm serves as an annex to the traditional home of a family whose needs have grown with time.

The little black house was positioned strategically in the garden so that it would organize and separate functions that are different by their nature (car park, access to the beach, original building) and handle the diversity of its immediate physical surroundings (meadow, beach, garden). Sunk deeper than the main building or the street, the new construction folds back to become part of the landscape. The form creates a relationship with its natural surroundings while seeking to maximize the space available inside.

The use of only one material for the exterior coupled with its color contributes to the building fitting in with the landscape. The angle formed by the volume of the guest house produces a sheltered space outdoors, where one can enjoy the view of Stockholm’s archipelago.

It has been designed to offer occasional hospitality to members of the family with a sitting room, bedroom and bathroom.  A “functional wall” houses a kitchenette / storage space, and a couch converts into a bunk bed for the children.  This efficient design leaves the floor surface uncluttered and makes the room feel more spacious than what it really is.

The 42 sqm little house was constructed with a prefabricated wooden frame, assembled in just one day, and clad with black sheet iron.

I love it, but part of me wants to keep the open, airy structures house-size, and to have the tiny ones be more den-like.
