Built for industrial designer Jenny Nordberg and artist Andreas Kurtson as an extension to an older villa, House for two artists had a simple brief: create a big, open atelier space at a low budget.
The square footprint and the cinderblock walls of the new building was a cost effective way of creating the requested space.
Carried by the cinderblock wall, the free-spanning glulam beams and the sixteen skylights create a flexible space that can be configured to the shifting needs of it’s owners.
The exterior of the walls and the roof, with its large overhang, are clad in a pitch black tar felt, contrasting with the bright interior.
