House K is a thin block with cut-outs for light, double-heights and a roof terrace. Using the full width of the property it separates the front yard facing East from the garden in the South-West. The house is built as a three-dimensional puzzle, where the double-height spaces mark the dining and living rooms. The interior forms one continuous space across two levels. As a result, movement through the house is characterised by visual shortcuts, spaces and overlapping activities. The upper level leads on to a rooftop terrace with sweeping views over Djursholm. The shallow block provides spaces that can introduce light from several directions. This is enhanced by the two double-heights that also guide views diagonally through the house. The interior is finished with white plaster, and all floors and wooden details are white ash. Facades are stained black plywood panels, mounted in layers on a slowly grown pine framework. The main structure is in-situ cast concrete. This is exposed in the cantilevered entrance canopy, which is only seven centimetres thick. La struttura attraversa il lotto definendo due spazi differenti all’aperto, un giardino sul lato anteriore ed uno su quello posteriore. Questa posizione consente di avere una costante vista frontale dell’abitazione che viene in tal modo percepita come una parete vuota la cui profondità sembra raggiungere appena la dimensione minima necessaria per accogliere gli spazi abitabili. Le diverse aperture immaginate lungo i quattro lati del blocco fungono da finestre per l’illuminazione naturale, che diventa considerevole nei due punti in cui le vetrate diventano spazi a tutt’altezza consentendo inoltre una visuale in diagonale degli spazi all’interno. Il piano terra è un ampio open space con un corridoio centrale che porta alla scala di accesso al piano superiore. Ne risulta un movimento caratterizzato da spazi e corridoi coincidenti. La struttura, realizzata in cemento gettato in opera, presenta una sporgenza aggettante spessa soli sette centimetri che funge da copertura all’ingresso principale. I muri sono isolati termicamente sia all’interno che all’esterno. Pareti bianche e frassino bianco definiscono gli spazi all’interno.
