Designed for carefree family living, Villa J is a generously sized luxury residence located near Kämpinge, a former fishing village east of the town of Höllviken in southernmost Sweden. While the house itself is close to the water, the corner site is adjacent to roads in the southeast and west. The main axes of the plot, the house and the garden work in symphony to create multiple unorthodox angles. The design composition draws on an aesthetic somewhere between collage and a more austere expression.
An atrium, secluded by walls and a pool house, unites the interior and exterior spaces. On the ground floor are the master bedroom and several ample social spaces, as well as a winter garden, kitchen, sauna, etc. The upper floor is the children’s realm, comprising a living room, bedrooms and a sizable family bath.
The floor plan is an attempt to merge different room types without the bulk of unnecessary walls and doors, with spaces opening onto each other in clear sequence and often with subtle shifts. Villa J can provide room for socializing or seclusion and even both simultaneously.
