Kjellgren Kaminsky Architecture as Architects

In Vetlanda, Sweden, a group home for six multi-handicapped youths is located. Besides that we have put a great focus on adapting the design for disabled people's specific needs, the dwellers expressed a strong wish for the building not to have the appearance of a large complex but rather to relate to the scale of surrounding villas and farmhouses. Therefore we designed each dwelling with its own pitched roof, giving a contemporary form through a reinterpretation of existing context. The houses are gathered around a common dining room. The plans where implementing the latest research developed by master students and professors at the Chalmers School of Architecture. The design is tailored to a strict budget and time frame.
