THREE SEMI-DETACHED HOUSES
SUNNERSTA Three semi-detached houses, Uppsala (2015-17, built)
Three semi-detached houses replaced an existing villa in a quiet suburb. Each building contains two dwellings. The inherent symmetry is expressed and expanded so that each façade has a symmetric composition. Over every corner symmetrical facades clash and create a free effect. The division of the facades into strong horizontal and vertical elements pronounce the windows as a function of their composition. Between the calm and ordered building volumes and the sculptural qualities of the exposed rock, a free but violent juxtaposition takes place.
