Description

House Juniskär is conceived as a reflection on the theme of domestic architecture. The house is composed of two clear building volumes with different proportions and heights, which allows for the adaptation of the exterior to the sloping site as well as a variety of interlocking spaces on the interior. The house has a sort of doubleness, or Janus character, as it is formal and symmetrical towards the garden but informal and plastic on the entrance side. 

»In our work we combine an interest in the fundamental values in architecture with a dedication to context, programme and building process« 

In the interior, the spatial sequence unfolds horizontally and vertically around the large stair that connects all levels. The interior spaces have many different proportions and are painted in slightly different hues and lined with white panelling, all of which further plays with the idea of the traditional home but also create subtle dislocations in how the proportions of the rooms are perceived. The exterior is clad with Danish brick in an English Cross bond, with brick sills in the windows. The uniform and ornamental treatment of the brick surface is underlined by the precise placement of the windows in relation to the bricklaying logic, which also gives the house a classic and monolithic appearance.
