Situated in Stockholm, Visiondivision have completed design a residential extension for two children, utilizes a landscape surface that is enhanced by elements around and inside the house. By deliberately picking cheap creating elements, such as windows and facade components, the architects saved a larger portion of the price range to generate as several playful components as they could. The landscape becomes not only a series of hills and valleys for play, but a series of considerably a lot more intricate spaces that include an outdoor cinema and a sledge slope. A carpet of artificial grass blankets the artificially made hill to blend in with the organic grass. This carpet continues out onto the terrace as nicely as down the hallway among the children’s rooms, as an try to unite the exterior with the interior environment.
A custom created grass sofa, and a couple of grassy knolls that also function as lighting make the interior “more organic and enhance the nature knowledge even further”. These artificial hills can be moved around and can be put outside, as nicely. The excavations that supplied the necessary dirt for the hills left a huge void below the house which Visiondivision turned into “two secret caves”. Produced from concrete with in-cast IKEA drinking glass as small lanterns, the caves leads to a various grassy places for play.
The house itself is clad is white corrugated metal sheeting which looks like wood from a distance, considering that wood is the predominant material in this area. But, as a single gets closer to the house, the cladding is “more alive and reflecting…and gets great shadow effects from the surrounding trees.
