Summer house with triangular profile / Leo Qvarsebo

Summer retreat with triangular profile  Leo Qvarsebo - HomeWorldDesign (9)

The architect Leo Qvarsebo has projected this summer house for himself and his children, trying to take full advantage of the scenic place. The house is positioned between a forest patch and a green field, in the province of Dalarna in Sweden. With a triangular profile, the house is described by the architect as “a tree for adults” because the inclined facade can be used as climbing wall. In the bottom part there is a large living room and a kitchen, while the rooms from the upper levels are more compact and intimate. Three large windows facing south provide a beautiful view and an abundance of natural light. The front part opens to a spacious terrace that offers enough space for lounges and a frame for swings. Qvarsebo house offers an intimate and quiet circumstance for spending summer days, a great place for outdoor cooking, reading or simply sleeping under the stars.

Sea Bright Beach House / Raad Studio

The design solution that resulted is the marriage of landscape and architecture. Though the neighborhood itself is graded flat, the parkland to the north is a wild original dunescape. By restoring our idea of the original natural state to the site, we created a set of hydrodynamic dunes with penetrations that allow water to sluice through the land
