Villa Sunnano by Murman Arkitekter

Located in the town of Sunnanö in Sweden, the design of this villa called Villa Sunnano belongs to the Stockholm based studio Murman ArkitekterThe villa is made of wooden barn-like blocks that splay out in various directions to form the exterior design. The way they are placed is important because it allows every part of the home to enjoy beautiful views of a nearby lake and the surrounding woodland that surrounds the house with overgrown pine trees and blueberry bushes.

From the architects: “The brief was to design a family house on a north facing triangular promontory, overgrown with pine and blueberry bushes, covered with large boulders. The first sketches were made in 2010 and were put on hold until 2013. The project was completed in 2015.
Connected with the water front in all directions; except on one side, due to the risk of flooding.
We wanted to take advantage of the site’s unique conditions and make a dwelling with maximum contact with the surrounding nature and water but with respect to privacy.
The entrance to the south welcomes the visitor as the building’s wings stretch out.
The spine like upper floor forms an axis through the house. This line continues to the footbridge in the north where it connects to the lake.
To reduce the scale and to allow clear definition of the functions of the building, the wings end with patio spaces that allow you to take advantage of the light and views in different directions.
Wherever you are in the house, you have access to framed views.
Just inside the sheltered entrance, the kitchen is to the left, which flows on to a patio that provides sunlight in the morning, mid-day and evening.
A dining room is orthogonal to the main axis of the building. The living room with a fireplace faces the evening sun and a framed patio offers protection from the evening light. The media rooms window captures the beautiful terrain.
Towards the east lies a sauna, guest rooms and utility rooms.
The bedrooms are located upstairs.
An existing log cabin has been remodeled to function as a garage and a storage yard.
The wood facade and ‘faltak’ roof is treated with iron sulphate that corresponds with the materiality of the pine trees and boulders.”
