Moutain House

 

 

Location: Edsåsdalen, Jämtland, Sweden

Completion: December 2012

Brief: To design a new holiday house, creating harmony with its surrounding with minimal impact on the terrain and surrounding nature, using mainly local materials.

Starting point: A plot of steep sloping land with mountain birch and fir trees next to the top of a ski slope.

 

This two stories house contains a large open space on its upper level, including living, dining and kitchen space and has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a sauna. The façade material and interior wall panelling are heat treated pine, and the floor is rustic Swedish oak. Despite the steep slope, all rooms – even the bedroom facing the mountain – has windows on at least two sides, inviting the constantly shifting mountain light to activate every corner of the building. The general feeling of the house is rustic but still modern, functional, but at the same time warm and cosy.
