This project is Helhetshus´s first own developed, housing project. The goal was to build 8 houses that felt exclusive regarding architecture and design, yet affordable. The site is located in Floda, 25 kilometers northeast of Gothenburg, Sweden. It´s a clearing on a hillside with large oak trees and a beautiful view of lake Sävelången. By using the existing conditions of the site and placing the houses halfway over the edge of the hillside; each house got a nice view towards the lake and at the same time it created more space on the sunny side of the plot towards southwest. The boomerang-shaped building leaves an open space towards the street and a more secluded garden space south of the building witch is maximised by placing the buildings as far north as possible on each plot. To spare the natural slope of the site, half of the house rest on pillars, leaving the ground beneth almost untuched and at the same time giving the building volume a dramatic expression. The roof ridge also follow this ground break witch makes the roof hight lower towards the ends where the building meet the surroundings.
