Villa PH


Villa in Lerberget, a low energy building with red brown danish brick facades.

The front facade is slanting towards the street to create a more private sphere while the house has generous windows facing the garden and the open fields beyond. 

As a concequence of the program for the area which advocates much larger bottom floor space than on the upper floor, we chose to work with a variation in room height. For example the living room is given double height and the upper floor has a slanted ceiling from just below 2 metres to 3.5 metres. 

Even the building technique is different, compared to the surrounding houses. The mortared walls together with the concrete upper floor create a very stable construction, made to stand for a long time without much maintenance needed. Sadly this is seldome the case with villas in Sweden.

Finished in 2017.
