The Gothenburg based practice Johannes Norlander Arkitektur recently completed this single family home, located in a residential area north west of Gothenburg, on the top of a hill, overlooking the North Sea. The hexagonal volume follows the existing topography of the site, aiming to create a natural walk around the building as well as creating an inside flew between the rooms and 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 a distance the building is meant to be abstract, like an icon of a house, approaching it, more physical and present, like someone near.”
