Villa D is situated in Tyresö, east of Stockholm, high above street-level on a rocky and steep site that overlooks a beautiful surrounding. Two main criteria were considered during the design phase: the client’s wish to access the highest point of the site, and an aim to limit the amount of blasted rock.
The choice was made to design a simple geometry with the main volume shooting out from the rock. This resulted in a long, narrow and rectangular shaped plan integrated into the rock on one end and cantilevered with an inclined gable on the other, which gave the house a dramatic effect worthy of the site. The grey tone of the wooden facade cladding has taken inspiration from the colours of the surrounding nature. The living room is located on the second floor, with access to a large private terrace.
