Efficient atrium houses in Hässelby This development comprises fifteen terraced houses. They are reminiscent of those commonly built during the 1960s and 70s-small and efficient. The exteriors are reserved and rational, but the buildings' volumes are unconventionally disposed. The homes are not lined up next to each other as one would expect, but rather interlock one into the next, creating protected gardens on the street side. The ground floor is designed as a series of spaces that flow into one another, moving from the garage and diagonally across an outdoor space, through the dining area, kitchen, and living room before emerging in another patio. In addition, the ceiling has a double height in the centre of the house, integrating the upstairs bedrooms with the living area.


The solution is an efficient two-storey house of approximately 105 square meters. The sheltered gardens at the front and the carports filter the noise from the street. The houses have a single-pitch roof. The repetition of houses and interlocking carports create a coherent silhouette.
