Modern architecture is captivating and inspiring. We all have our own idea for our dream home, but contemporary designs and modern elements will change everything. Today we get a look at a beautifully simple structure known as the Dalarna House. The home is situated on a steep slope plot north of Stockholm. It has been designed to fade into the scenery over time, doing so with a unique exterior that fits seamlessly with its surroundings.
The house is comprised of two volumes that are clad in timber planks to resemble the surrounding silver birch and pine trees. The slanted roofs are designed to focus on views of the lake and forest, offering exceptional vistas in the process. The entryway is found at the intersection of the two units, dividing the home between the sleeping quarters and the gathering areas. The expansive windows keep nature in focus, while the home is positioned north to south to take advantage of the morning sunlight and capture sunsets. The glazing even expands the interior to a covered terrace, offering an open-air living space immersed in the surrounding scenery. The home is a stunning example of modern design is a rural location.
