Hamra House in Gotland, Sweden

Words

Architectural practice DinellJohansson created the Hamra House in Gotland, Sweden. The architects aimed to build a simple home as one open space with a large number of possible beds, cooking in the middle and washing facilities outside the house.

The interior space is dominated by two plywood volumes which, in and above, offer space to play and to sleep. Around and between these volumes entrance, cooking, dining and living takes place. All serving functions are organized along a 90cm wide strip running through the house. All technical equipment and all water and drainage is located along this strip which limited the complexity of installation work. Spacial functions like stairs, storage, closets, bookshelf etc. are also located along the serving strip. The furniture is to a large extent assembled out of remaining our reused building material.
