Modern Home Design Review
Petra Gipp Arkitektur and Katarina Lundeberg have created a living space located in an island which is based in Stockholm Sweden. This living space is precisely located on a cliff in this island. The clients wished for a living in interplay with the experience of this environment.
The site of this house is located in an area of the temporary dwelling where the small, elemental wooden houses from the mid 1900’s provide holiday housing. The house overlooks the bay from high up on a cliff at the very tip of a cape. The architect clients pictured the dwelling here as an interplay with the experience of this environment with the possibility of the privacy and transparency.
The living space turns away from the settlement, towards the water. To create the conditions for the life which is led here, the two distinct volumes take of each other. Which have a direct connection to the outside via a separate entrance one of the volumes contains the elemental cells for sleeping.
There is also a large bedroom with an adjacent terrace, and a bathroom, which is open to the sky. The other one of the two volumes houses a generous living room and a kitchen here is the public aspects of dwelling take place. The kitchen presents a degree of simplicity and abstraction, which aesthetically as well as functionally brings it into the same realm as the living room.
Modern Home Design Architecture
An internal light well forms itself where the light cuts down through a large lantern as a release between the two volumes. The idea is to allow this release to define a conceptual cut between the two parts of the house; the closed space that turns inwards, and the generously outward looking, open volume.
The clients envisioned terraces to bring the house and the cliff together into a whole. Thus, in order to retain a concentrated totality of form, the generous terraces formally belong to the main structure while they connect it to the ground. On the outside, steps are carved out of the volume to connect the bedroom terrace to the roof. The spacious living room blurs the boundary between inside and outside. Part of the volume forms an outside space with nothing but a roof as protection from the elements, this part transitions into the large terraces.
The architect intention has been to create something sustainable through the use of materials that age with dignity, to enhance the experience over time, both of the house and of the site.
The open foundation rises above ground and leaves the site untouched. There is a strong desire to inflict as little damage on the site as possible, visually as well as conceptually.
