Villa Midgård was designed by Stockholm-based studio DAPstockholm and is a three-level modern residence located in Stockholm, Sweden. The client’s brief required a home with a maintenance‐free facade, tall rooms and openness towards the surrounding natural landscape. The result is a building with no less than seven facades. Here is a description from the architects:”Cutouts in the mountain give space for the outdoor seating areas. The second floor is suspended above the entrance floor to shadow and protect the yard. Here the infinity pool, made out of dark concrete, makes you think of a deep forest lake adding to qualities of a wilderness where the water runs over the pool edge. The facade of the souterrain is made out of slate and the stair from the carport out of limestone. Grass covers the roof of the tallest volume and the roof terrace where it is themed with spruce. The house interior also exhibits materials that are close to nature such as walnut, ceramic granite and marble”. Be sure to have a look at the architecture plans at the end of the post for a better understanding of the project and don’t forget to give us your feedback!
