The Fagerström House, designed by Claesson Koivisto Rune Architects, is a curved S-formed residence situated in Sollentuna, Sweden. Built for a rising household, the house needed to be giant sufficient to accommodate their wants, whereas on the similar time preserving an previous oak tree that was rising in the midst of the property. So, an S-formed design was born.
The exterior is clad with vertical boards that transition in colour from ocher (extensive boards) to darkish purple (slender boards). The colour inspiration got here from a Swedish youngsters’s e-book entitled “Where’s the Tall Uncle’s Hat?”.
If they’d caught with a pointy nook as an alternative of the curve, the stream would have been damaged up. The curve additionally provides the outside a sculptural really feel which is one thing the home-owner requested for.
In the tall finish of the home, there are two flooring with the bedrooms being on the highest flooring that you simply entry by way of a curved stairwell. The two-story finish progressively transitions to a stopping level the place there’s a balcony overlooking the lounge (above). It provides the lounge excessive ceilings the place the highest flooring would have been.
The placement of the massive home windows was strategic as to keep away from the visibility of the neighbors. It helps give the house a sense of being situated in a extra rural location than it’s.
The center of the construction homes the open kitchen that flows into the lounge, all with entry to the outside and with views of the oak tree.
I love how they included the curved bookcase into the steps, all blood purple and matching one of many shades on the outside.
The downstairs flooring are product of Carrara marble and laid perpendicularly to the primary facade.
The loos are coated from the ground, ceiling, and partitions with numerous patterns from Marrakech Design’s assortment that Claesson Koivisto Rune designed.
