Villa Överby by John Robert Nilsson Arkitektkontor

John Robert Nilsson Arkitektkontor have designed the absolutely stunning Villa Överby on the archipelago off the coast of Stockholm, the capital of Sweden.
The entire design that makes up this residence is extremely simple, which is the key to its wonderful, open plan look that tends to make the most out of the available natural light. Its matte black exterior consists mostly out of glass walls that open up the home to stellar sea views.

A well-appointed summer house built to comply with rigorous requirements in design and precision of execution. Features state-of-the-art solutions that appear simple and uncluttered. Clean forms and clean lines are consistently pursued throughout. This is a technology-intensive house, a piece of civilized life and order perched atop a rocky headland in the wilds of the Stockholm archipelago.

Open space with high glass walls facing the sea. In stark contrast is the entrance side of the house, comprising a dense, plastered wall in which the only opening is a ceiling-high pivot door, whose latticed surface lets the light seep through.

A few select quality materials are used consistently throughout the house. Light against dark, creating a stark graphic distinctness. Light materials include limestone from Gotland, silvery white ash wood, matte-white painted walls and ceilings. White lacquered steel elements in the interior.

Contact between the interior and exterior is enhanced by disappearing walls of glass, leaving a seamless sweeping view spanning from stone floor to ceiling. The exterior is dark with matte-black plaster, roofing felt, and powder-coated steel.

We also landscaped the surrounding terrain, including an overflow pool set on the outer edge of the stone block, and have drawn up a suggestion for steps down to the bay and docking pier.
