Stockholm architects Tham & Videgård Hansson has developed a nice light-weight building in wood and glass as a summer house in the Stockholm archipelago. The layout of the plan is generated by the specifics of the site, the house being placed on the flat surface between two mountain rocks and turning simultaneously towards the sun the south and frontally towards the sea in the west. With the small rooms located in the back the rest of the house stand out as an open platform crisscrossed by sliding glass. The house is organised in layers. The big rooms expand in open relationshp to the wooden deck outside of the house. The zig-zagged layout also offers several outside places sheltered from the strong wind.
Tham & Videgård Hansson architects was founded by Bolle Tham and Martin Videgård Hansson back in 1999. The practice works in the wide field of contemporary architecture, planning and interior design, in projects for private, corporate and public clients.
