Cypressvägen 1

Deepening my knowledge about Swedish design with a fictive interior architecture project based on a real life house just outside of Stockholm.

This residence project is for a Swedish family that lives just outside of Stockholm, surrounded by nature. The concept of their home is based on an extensive research about Swedish culture, traditions, design, and every day life to make the family feel at home.

Some key learnings are the importance of having a social spot for family and friends, but also the possibility to retreat to a quiet and private place. The possibility to enjoy nature and sunlight is a must, and light and natural colours and materials are great too.


As you can see in the floorpans and model, this results in a cozy fireplace on the ground floor, symbolizing the heart of the house to bring family and friends together. The routing and the grains of the wooden floor that subtly form circles around the chimney emphasize this and create more privacy the further away you get. Also, the shape of the house and rooms have a big influence on the active and passive behaviour: being in the basement or under the pointy roof, you feel more privacy and intimacy, while the ground floor is very spacious and surrounded by big windows. This allows for a minimal border between inside and outside to enjoy the nature and sacred sunlight.
