A Weekend House In the Woods Near Stockholm
- Jessica Jungbauer
Located in the woods near Stockholm, ‘The Six Walls’ house is a light-filled weekend home designed by architecture practice Arrhov Frick Arkitektkontor. The concrete building features a sleek rectangular design with walls that are more than five meters high. The same simplicity-guided approach goes for the interior, with a narrow entrance opening up to expansive living areas including a roof terrace overlooking the area’s pine trees.
Speaking of the process behind the concept, the architects say: “Perhaps as a contrast to the context, we wanted to build the house around a robust and clear material and concrete blocks with cement plaster became an important part. Simple geometry and detailing have been essential in order to build the house within a tight budget.” Based in Stockholm, the studio realizes projects with a simple and clean aesthetic across various disciplines, spanning from architecture to interior design.
