Text description provided by the architects. Constructed with prefabricated steel and concrete modules this 200m2 home is built on a steeply sloping site in an island suburb of Stockholm.

Because of the sloping site and the close proximity of the neighbors we chose to camouflage this rather large volume under a sledding ramp and a roof terrace, making it extremely discreet from the road.

The ramp creates an entrance hall for the house that leads to the main living area. A living area that is lined with floor to ceiling windows and a view of the sea. The entrance level also includes a master bedroom, two bathrooms, a kitchen with a study bar, the living and dining area, a large balcony and a reading niche built into the stairs.

On the lower level there are 3 more bedrooms, a family room and a bathroom as well as an outdoor terrace that leads to the lower garden.

Using passive house principles, the structure is heavily insulated, as air-tight as possible and employs a high-efficiency heat exchanger to maximize energy efficiency.
