Villa JJ / Metropolis Arkitekter
Textual content description supplied by the architects. Villa JJ is positioned on a cliff on the shoreline of Stockholm’s southern archipelago. The local weather right here may be harsh, nature is formed by rain and storms as a lot as by solar and drought. The constructing custom was characterised by easy buildings, typically gathered in clusters to guard one another, akin to fishermen’s sheds or small farms. The homes had been low, clad with wooden boards, grey or virtually white.
Constructing on this atmosphere is about working with the few supplies that the placement and circumstances have supplied. The constructing custom is our inspiration, however the circumstances at the moment will not be fairly the identical as they had been then. We need to preserve the perspective of conventional building in such a approach that the best and most obvious approach of constructing has all the time been sought. Constructing elements and assemblies are sometimes clearly declared. The normal constructing is its handbook, see and imitate, it says, then it will likely be good.
In Villa JJ, we attempt to present how one can construct with out repeating how it’s often executed. The roof end is abruptly minimize off with out lining boards to point out what the within of the roof appears like, the rafters are overlong in order that they will assist a water channel of booked sheet metallic, but in addition in order that the ends of the wooden solid shadows on the façade and are ornamental. We need to reap the benefits of the decorative potential of requirements. It is the pure perspective of arts and crafts, whether or not it is about knitting a sweater or constructing a home. Magnificence happens as a consequence of the work.
The challenge consists of three quite simple buildings. The primary comprises the kitchen, eating space, and front room, the second home is smaller and is a bit greater within the terrain, the place we now have the bed room, tub, and garments storage. The third a part of the constructing homes expertise, storage, and area for visitors. Between the three homes is the doorway, it has a flat roof and partitions of glass. The ground is similar as out on the terrace, gray Offerdal slate. An area between inside and outside.
