Peninsula House in Stockholm, eastern Sweden

The clients for this project came to us through a recommendation of an existing client in Stockholm.

The project is located on a sand peninsula on the south-west corner of Sweden. This project holds a special place in our hearts as it is located where Magnus grew up. The area is characterized by long sweeping with sand beaches, low lying marshlands and is a popular place with golfers, watersport enthusiasts, and nature lovers.

Peninsula House

The site enjoys a front-line position next to the nature reserve and the beach. Although the location is very flat, you get a fantastic view of the Baltic from the first floor.

Peninsula House

Strict planning guidelines set parameters for footprint, site positioning as well as determining where on the site a second storey was allowed.

Peninsula House

To take full advantage of the location and the views, we designed an upside-down house.

The first floor sits as an open-sided rectangular volume with a completely glazed façade overlooking the sea. The floor comprises kitchen, dining and living spaces, and a generous terrace for outside living. The glazing is set back to give a balcony to the entire front façade, at the same time this allows generous overhangs to shade the façade.

Peninsula House

Underneath the first-floor volume, the arrangement is an L-shape in plan. One wing, underneath the living spaces contain the family bedrooms, and ancillary spaces. The other wing, contain a sauna to warm up after a kitesurf on the water, as well as guest bedrooms.

The façade to the street is intentionally left blank, as to shield the house from the street, which is one of the main access points down to the beach.

Peninsula House

The ground floor is to be built in bag-washed brick, and the first floor in a sandy-grey micro cement. Timber elements to decks, and some façade details will be weathered to a silvery grey.

Overall, the palette of material takes its cues from the colours of the sand beach and its environs.

Peninsula House

We worked closely with Francesca Oggioni, an Italian interior architect to develop calm and rich interiors. Most internal walls are in a stucco finish in a neutral colour, accompanied by Belgian blue Limestone and white oiled Oak. Oak furniture and some wabi-sabiesque rustic pieces complete the interiors.
