Villa J2 is a lovely family home in Sweden designed by Jonas Lindvall of the Swedish multidisciplinary design firm Lindvall A & D.

The project began as the revamp of an existing summerhouse dating back to the 1940s. However, due to building regulations stipulating that the footprint remain unchanged, the house was rebuilt entirely.

Villa J2

Falsterbo is one of the most popular resort regions in southern Sweden, becoming densely populated over summer. Although the site sits within a residential neighbourhood, privacy was crucial. This was achieved by placing the garage at the street-facing front of the house, with a path leading alongside the garage to the home. Tall shrubbery borders the site, creating a boundary between the neighbouring homes.

Villa J2

A long, narrow hallway runs along the entire length of the house, leading to the master bedroom suite and the children’s bedrooms. A playroom separates the children’s area from the parents’ area and the rest of the home. Central to the plan is the integrated kitchen, dining and lounge area, which opens out to a west-facing patio.

Villa J2

The main objective was to create a hub within the home, a space that encourages social interaction. To the north, a painted steel spiral staircase leading up to the library, home office and outdoor terrace creates a sculptural focal point against the minimal architecture. With a skylight directly above and a sliding partition leading to a smaller outdoor terrace beyond the staircase, the dramatic, light-filled area was inspired by winter gardens of the past.
