MYTTINGE Private house, Värmdö (2015-17, built)
The brief was simple, a summer house in bucolic surroundings. We sought out a relationship to the natural setting based on tension, working with scale and order to pursue a reserved architectonic expression. Monumental expression in individual building elements creates unusual effects when used in small-scale and domestic settings. The dark broad piers of the exterior order the facades on all sides. The cornice crowning the facades is very slim, resulting in an ambiguous trabeation, where there is no load-bearing taking place. The interior is abstract and restrained. The vertical windows balance an openness to the surroundings with a firm delineation of interior space.
