New Houses in Sweden

We’ve selected what we feel are the key examples of Swedish Houses. We aim to include houses in Sweden that are either of top quality or interesting, or ideally both. We cover completed houses, new house designs, architectural exhibitions and architecture competitions across Sweden.

Contemporary Swedish Residential Architecture – latest additions to this page, arranged chronologically:

Timjan, Lund, southwest Sweden
Design: Johan Sundberg Arkitektur
Timjan House Extension Lund Sweden

Timjan House Extension, Lund
Equal parts refined and generous, an extension in Lund’s residential quarter brings new life to an apple orchard. Dating back to the 1920’s and already meticulously renovated by the clients, the existing villa is supplemented with a generously sized entrance hall, guest room, kitchenette and bathroom.

Kattegat House, Southern Sweden
A private house on the West coast of Southern of Sweden, not far from where Magnus Ström grew up. It is an extremely exposed site, but with stunning views and the personal connection with Magnus, it was an especially interesting challenge.

The setting is the Stockholm archipelago, natural ground sloping gently down to the sea in the south, mostly open with a few trees and bushes. Unlike other projects we worked on located on more isolated islands in the archipelago without car access from the mainland, this site was relatively easy to reach also with heavy transports.

Stocksund Villa Roof Addition, Stockholm, east Sweden
Design: General Architecture
Stocksund Housen - Stockholm Property

This unusual roof addition sits atop a private villa in Stocksund, Stockholm, Sweden. The structure is formed by three equal-sized square rooms, that substitute the previous existing pitched. Each room contains big window panes and skylights opening the spaces to the nature outside.

20 Aug 2013
Fagerström House, Edsviken, Sollentuna, east Sweden
Design: Claesson Koivisto Rune Architects
Fagerström House - Edsviken
photograph : Åke E:son Lindman
The client had split his garden city plot in two and moved the old house to the one. The other had a more embedded position, including a big old oak tree in the middle. The gross building allowance had to be fully exploited in order to create a large enough home for the growing family. The stipulated distance to the property line of course limited the positioning from the sides, while the desire to preserve the old oak tree blocked the middle.

Kloster Houses, western Sweden
Architect: Torsten Ottesjö
Kloster Houses - New Rural Building in Sweden

Kloster Properties
Residences located on a strip of land on the west coast of Sweden designed by Torsten Ottesjö. He selectively cut trees from the landscape to create a vision for what the rolling southern ends of the scandinavian fjords could look like. He wanted to open up the landscape to provide an experience, to selectively allow trees to flourish to over time create a place which accentuated the rolling characteristic of the landscape.

Aluminum House Sweden
On the eastern part of the plot is a beautiful old stand of trees. The proposed movement in this project follows the principle often used in Japanese garden art; first you spot the main vista (the orchard), then it disappears out of view – but is not forgotten.

Ankerspelet housing, Malmo
Design: Kim Utzon Arkitekter

Ankerspelet Malmo
The interplay between the variedly displaced facades challenges and yet respects the general urban planning of the area, and creates a spatial filter and an articulated threshold between the private and the public space and the city and the open space of Øresund.

Archipelago House, Stockholm archipelago
Design: Tham & Videgård Hansson Architects
Swedish house

Archipelago House Stockholm
Conceived as a lightweight construction in wood and glass, this summerhouse is built in the outer Stockholm archipelago. The horizontal character of the black stained exterior relates to the verticals of tall grown pines and the mirrored views of the Baltic Sea.
