‘By using living materials, the house will become more characteristic with age,’ says architect Calle Smedshammar of Villa Midgård, a private family dwelling in Stockholm, Sweden.
The house, which spans 300-sq-m, was made of concrete and Corten steel with charcoaled beech wood interspersed throughout. The maintenance-free exterior covers the house’s multiple voluments which form seven different façades.
The clients wanted private spaces throughout the home, with a master bedroom that would capture morning sun and large windows to overlook the scenic views.
‘This resulted in a multi‐faceted house where the shape and direction of the different volumes are based on various factors like terrain, light conditions, views and privacy,’ says Smedshammar, an architect and partner at DAPstockholm. via
