Husaro House

Set atop a plateau on the Stockholm archipelago, the Husaro House overcomes its humble building materials with a clever design. The square structure is split into two levels, with an open ground level that houses the kitchen, bathroom, living area, and stairs, and an upper floor that plays host to the bedrooms and a playroom. Added lighting is provided by a skylight that runs along the top edge of the pitched roof, as well as large sliding windows. Glazed sliding doors provide access to the outdoors, while bent plywood between the glulam beams provides a sense of direction, and the folded black sheet metal cladding lets the exterior stand out among the surrounding trees.

  • IT House

    Sustainable. Prefabricated. Yet totally personal. Using an aluminum frame manufactured by Bosch and glass walls, the IT House is designed to be customized yet can be built in just eight weeks. It uses radiant heat flooring and rooftop solar panels to keep its environmental footprint to a minimum, and can be built to stay totally off the grid. Options including moveable walls, fireplaces, and designer furniture, and with packages starting as 1,200 square feet, it can accommodate nearly any needs.

  • Encallada House

    Perched on a Chilean cliff's edge, the Encallada House is part beach house, part mountain retreat. The exterior is covered in charred pine wood, with an angular roof that recalls the rocky terrain. Inside, light wood on the walls, floors, and ceilings contrasts with the house's exterior and the frames of the floor-to-ceiling windows, which afford views of an estuary and the Pacific beyond. The home is split into five levels, with large open spaces and a sizable terrace on the ground floor, and bedrooms spread across the upper levels.
