JUNISKÄR Single-family house, Sundsvall (2012-15, built)
The project is conceived as a reflection on the theme of the domestic. The house is composed of two clear volumes with different proportions and heights, allowing for the exterior adaption to the sloping site as well as an interior variety of interlocking spaces. The house has a sort of doubleness or Janus-character, being formal and symmetrical towards the garden but informal and plastic toward the entrance side. The interior spaces play with the idea of the traditional or home-like, and create subtle dislocations in the perception of the rooms through the use of different proportions and hues of colour.
