Text description provided by the architects. In the coastal village of Kivik we were commissioned to design 12 houses. The building permission was strict and only allowed a roof angle of 45 degrees. To create an interesting spacial experience we divided the houses in different units, the high ceiling makes the interior rather unique although it’s traditional shape.
