1. A lot of nature in a small space

    Like a reptile, this squamous form snakes its way through the rugged landscape on the Swedish west coast. It is the brainchild of architect Torsten Ottesjö, who built “Hus-1” on this spacious plot of land, far removed from any urban structures. The design was his attempt to unravel the apparent conflict between architecture and nature. In his view, a building shouldn’t stand like some foreign body in its surroundings; on the contrary, its organic silhouette should enable it to harmoniously blend in with the nature that surrounds it. On the outside the convex building is enveloped in spruce-wood roofing shingles, custom-built by the architect for this very project. Some sections of the house are balanced on dainty stilts giving the impression that it has actually sprouted out of the earth itself.
