Villa UH1

Villa UH1, Single family house, Nacka, Stockholm

The house is conceived as a part of the landscape climbing gently up a hilly terrain.

An inner courtyard allows for privacy as well as for maximum daylight.

The roof is covered with green moss, making the building integrate with the surrounding nature as the boundaries between construction and landscape dissolve. Project developed by Unika Hem Skandinavien AB.

Villa UH1. Architect: Rahel Belatchew Lerdell, Stockholm
