The surrounding nature and the slope dictated the shape of this one family house fully covered in black roofing felt. A darling uncompromising design was the starting point for the development of this villa in Nacka, just outside Stock- holm.

The house was created during a number of workshops with the client,where different volumes were tested in models and several site visits.

It resulted in a narrow and extended house that sits at the very top of the site, hovering on concrete blocks over the rock. The house is fully covered in roofing felt on both roof and facades to give a calm and uniform black exterior, that contrasts with the crispy white interior.

Wardrobes, lighting and sockets are inset in walls and ceilings to give an even and clean look. The different functions within the house appear according to a hierarchy, moving from public towards the private;  from the garage, entrance, then kitchen, living room and farthest away bedrooms and bath.
