Welcome to a recently built modern villa found on Residence.se, that features an inviting pool and great views of the Stockholm inlet. The plastered facade along with the numerous windows give a sober modern impression to the exterior of the residence. With a total living area of 227 square meters (five bedrooms and three bathrooms), this place is perfect for a large family. The interiors all give away a feeling of space, while the generously sized windows allow natural light inside and connect the house with the outdoors. The living room has an open and airy floor plan with exit to a large balcony all along the southern facade. Sophisticated lighting details, modern furniture elements and subtle color accents that do a great job contrasting the plastered white walls set the tone for this elegantly-designed villa. Since there are so many inspiring home items displayed in the photos below, we will let you have a look and give you further information, if you require so in your comments.
Energy during the construction process was saved by using FSC-certified glulam timber instead of steel to create the building’s distinctive wavy roof, while the store’s external walls use hemclad, a highly innovative insulator made from hemp, which, like all plants, absorbs CO2 from the atmosphere as it grows. An 80,000 litre water tank below ground provides water for the store’s toilets and waters the site’s green wall’, which provides natural insulation, acts as an all-natural pollution filter near the car park, and helps to encourage biodiversity. The result is a building that uses a fraction of the energy of structures of a similar size, and is still very popular with local shoppers.
An example of a huge success is Heneghan Peng Architects’ Giant’s Causeway Visitors’ Centre in Antrim, Northern Ireland. Using the large difference in level across the site, the architects created two folds in the landscape. Bold, but not conflicting with the rather bleak natural environment, these folds draw all the man-made areas together and create one fitting man-made break in the natural landscape. In the words of the architects themselves, There is no longer a building and a landscape, but building becomes landscape and the landscape itself remains spectacular and iconic
