Long Narrow House in Sweden

The Widlund House is located in Sandvik, Öland, Sweden. It’s a very beautiful example of Scandinavian simplicity. The house was designed by Claesson Koivisto Rune. The exterior of the house is white and the façade is very simple, with only a few asymmetrical lines meant to deceive the eye. The building has a very simple geometrical shape with clean lines and right angles.

The interior of the house is also very simple and bright. The house is filed with natural light coming through the large windows. One side of the house is completely transparent and features floor-to-ceiling glass walls. It’s an element that creates a strong connection between the indoor and outdoor areas. At the same time it also provides plenty of natural light and allows the users to admire the expansive views of the surrounding landscape.

The Widlund House sits on the west coast of the Baltic Island. It’s an unusual structure that stands out with its simplicity. It’s in fact a white concrete box sitting in the middle of the site. The interior is functionally divided into private and social areas. There’s a private two-storey bedroom volume in the rear of the house and a social double-ceiling-height space in the front. In order to achieve perfect precision and color, the architects that designed the house used precast concrete, not a very common choice for such projects. The house has a beautiful geometry and a very charming plainness that makes it simple but very stylish.{found on contemporist}.
