Swedish Minimalism: Villa UH1 by RB Arkitektur

Designed by the creative folks at RB Arkitektur as a German bunker from the Second World War, Villa UH1 is actually a minimalist home with contemporary accents. Meant as a single-family house, it’s actually an eco-friendly example of how to go beyond the boundaries. Located on a soft natural slope in a residential area of Stockholm, it features a roof covered in green moss and uses geothermal energy to harness energy (a heat pump suplies the under-floor heating system). Villa UH1 features an inner courtyard for privacy, has large windows to promote natural lighting, large open spaces and amazing furniture. We love it!  – via

    The unrevealed truth behind the minimalist movement in the 60′s must be the
    search to ease cleaning (imagine the old vacuum cleaner sound) ;)
    Nice house but no color touch

    I love minimalism. And surprisinly in this house the excess of white is not that bad. I normally dislike too much. its maybe the lighting, or the fact pictures were taken during daylight.
