FÖRSTBERG LING  |  House for Mother

LINKÖPING, SWEDEN

"House for mother balances spatiality with intimate rooms - formal simplicity with strong materiality. The raw corrugated aluminium facade creates a variable play with light and shade during the day, a rich materiality contrasting with its simple expression. The fuzzy reflections in the unpainted metal make the house change color throughout the day, changing expression depending on the weather, from blue to grey to white or even pink, when the sun is setting. The wooden beams and trusses along with the walls lined with plywood give warmth to the interior while the concrete floor is a durable surface for everyday use, elevated to a low bench along the perimeter of the building."
