When Architecture and Nature Interact: Villa Remshagen

advertise here

Villa Remshagen was designed by Carl-Johan Smedshammar in collaboration with Andres Holmberg Architects and is located in Vallentuna, Sweden. The residence is surrounded by oak trees and sits atop of a small hill, with views to a nearby lake. The exterior of the house is quite appealing, displaying a simple, yet charming geometry. When inside, a wide hallway leads the way while separating the social parts from the sleeping areas. The interiors are spacious and airy, featuring interesting decorative details. We particularly like the giant bookcase with plenty of integrated storage space which gives a nice, warm feel to the whole room. The project also features an outdoor terrace, that is perfect for meditating or for having people over for a drink. Not far away down from the main residence, there is another similar project (of different size, though) that serves as a guest house. Enjoy the photos!
