Överby House in Sweden by John Robert Nilsson

Stockholm-based architectural practice, John Robert Nilsson, has designed the Överby House project. The single-storey holiday home is located close to Stockholm, Sweden.

According to the architects: “A well-appointed summer house built to comply with rigorous requirements in design and precision of execution. Features state-of-the-art solutions that appear simple and uncluttered. Clean forms and clean lines are consistently pursued throughout. This is a technology-intensive house, a piece of civilized life and order perched atop a rocky headland in the wilds of the Stockholm archipelago.

Interior design includes open spaces with high glass walls facing the sea. In stark contrast is the entrance side of the house, comprising a dense, plastered wall in which the only opening is a ceiling-high pivot door, whose latticed surface lets the light seep through.

“A few select quality materials are used consistently throughout the house. Light against dark, creating a stark graphic distinctness. Light materials include limestone from Gotland, silvery white ash wood, matte-white painted walls and ceilings. White lacquered steel elements in the interior.

“Contact between the interior and exterior is enhanced by disappearing walls of glass, leaving a seamless sweeping view spanning from stone floor to ceiling. The exterior of this contemporary Stockholm property is dark with matte-black plaster, roofing felt, and powder-coated steel.

“We also landscaped the surrounding terrain, including an overflow pool set on the outer edge of the stone block, and have drawn up a suggestion for steps down to the bay and docking pier.”
