Architect Name: Anders Berensson Architects

Zartmann House By Anders Berensson Architects - Sheet2The house is located on a remote island without roads and was built by helicoptering building kits to the sight. Working with a straight kit on a hilly landscape with a demanding local plan we abandon the idea of designing one house as one big volume. Instead we designed four volumes on two separate rocks connected by a deck and a bridge.

This house is divided in a serving volume with a furnace room, storage, bathroom, entrance and bedrooms connected to the living room volume.
