Stockholm-based practice Elding Oscarson have built a residence on a narrow site in Landskrona, Sweden. The modern house is sandwiched between old neighboring buildings. The 75 square meter house is built for a male couple that love art and run a café.
From the architects, “The openness to all directions generates a building both monolithic and transparent. All facades are treated equally, exposing the interior and offering views through the building with similar apertures whether on the front, back or sides. The neigboring facades are closed, yet there is something deeply humane about their tactility, detailing, and ornaments. We want to contribute to the street with a faded border to the private sphere, with artifacts, furniture, plants, and patios; traces of human presence, consideration, and care.”
