Enen house

Sjöblom Freij Arkitekter as Architects

The house is located on the western coast of Sweden on the Onsala peninsula. The area is originally a rural landscape with small fishing communities. Today the area consist mainly out of summer houses and smaller marinas. The site can be described as a wild garden surrounded by an old boulder wall made of weathered natural stones from the nearby coastline. A small passage in the stone wall leads directly to the shore through a small field/patch of common reed. The building is constructed as a small independent summerhouse but also functions as a guesthouse to an existing larger building. In order to preserve the views for the neighboring house towards the sea the building is lowered into the ground. This creates a close visual connection between all rooms in the new house to the garden and uninterrupted views toward the ocean. The structure is divided in three parts; glass, larch, sedum grass almost mimicking it´s surrounding; water, reed, garden. The base underneath the soil is constructed as in-situ cast concrete, fair-faced towards the interior. The house above ground is made as a timber frame construction with aluminium framed windows and larch wood panels. Above the windows there is a horizontal larch weatherboarding and a sedum grass roof. The layout of the house is very simple with one bedroom and a combined living room divided by a small bathroom and wardrobe. Above the bathroom there is a small loft with a large roof light.
