Private House Saltsjö-Boo, Sweden

Located in a typical villa suburb of Stockholm, this project is a full-blown makeover of a dark-brown brick and wood building from the 1970s.

The design intent is diametrically opposed to what was there before.

Materiality chaos and multiplicity has been replaced by a reduced and refined material palette of render, limestone and sheet metal. Irregular features are now strictly regular throughout the facades.

Albeit there is nothing left today reminding of the old, the new basic form was inherited and transformed into something with a radically rethought design language inspired by classical references.
