another project by Skälsö Arkitekter shared on gooood:
The Lime Barn 石灰仓库中的餐厅，酒吧，艺术馆
Littorinahavet 7 is a private holiday home, located on Bungenäs, a former lime stone quarry and military site in the northern part of Gotland, Sweden. The house is built for a young couple who bought this little piece of land almost two years ago.
SkälsöArkitekter, who currently works with many other projects in the area got the commission to design their future summer home. With a tight budget and a not very big piece of land, the client wanted a simple and clean but yet worked through and site specific little house, where inside and outside were as equally important.
Unique for the site is its dramatic location, only a few meters fromthe former lime stone quarry’s steep rock walls. This is also the main view from the house and its courtyard.
The house consists of an L-shaped volume, formed by the landscape and placed to create an intimate courtyard where existing nature is kept as untouched as possible. The exterior façade is made of untreated pine wood panel, interior walls are white and the floors in pine wood from Gotland. The house opens up, with large glass windows and doors towards south and the lime stone quarry, concrete plints are placed by every exterior door as a barrier between the interior wooden floor and the exterior gravel. By request from the client, the only bedroom has no windows but two ventilation hatches. To get even more light into the house a ceiling window is placed in the main room/hallway and the flat roof is to make it possible for a roof terrace from which you have a dramatic ocean view.
This is a house that will, by time, mature and become more and more integrated and almost hidden in its surroundings.
