The Contemporary Håkansson Tegman House, Sweden

Lund-based designers Johan Sundberg completed the Håkansson Tegman house in 2008. The modern home can be found in the city of Höllviken, Sweden.

The architects said: “Höllviken south of Malmö was originally a seaside resort, but the forested rows of summer houses are continuously being transformed into a carpet of permanent housing. The site is a somewhat complicated corner plot with roads to the north and west.

The project was commissioned by a couple who wanted a modern and nature-oriented one-storey house where sensuous qualities were the most important parameters throughout the design process.

The contemporary house is angled around an inner garden and, much like the Bergman Werntoft house, rests on the tradition of the Danish atrium house from the 60s and 70s. Three small bedrooms crowd together in the northern wing of the house, while the western wing is a continuous sequence of spaces consisting of a kitchen, dining room, library, living area, and winter garden.

The outer walls along the streets are clad with Pedersen clay bricks working as a screen. The stucture is a steel-enforced timber frame. Windows and sliding glass doors are made from Schüco aluminum profiles. The front and garage doors are custom made from ammonium smoked oak. Images courtesy of Henrik Magnusson.
