The house in Stocksund, Stockholm, is a thin block with cut-outs for light, double-heights and a roof terrace. Tham & Widegård Hansson Arkitekter projected the house so that it appears as if just a line, a wall with a certain depth to fit in space for living.
The shallow block provides spaces that can introduce light from several directions. This is enhanced by the two double-heights that also guide views diagonally through the interior. The plan is simple: entrance and stairs fits into one box on ground level, a central passage on the upper floor gives access to bedrooms. The interior is one continuous space in two levels.
The main structure is in situ concrete, the interior is finished with white plaster, all floors and wooden details are white ash. Facades are stained black plywood panels, mounted in layers on the slowly grown pine framework.
