Braedrahus by PK Arkitektar is a project consisting of two summer houses for two brothers and their families.

Situated in a forest of low birch trees beneath stunning mountains, the twin houses all but melt into the landscape. The narrow approach to the cottages is a wooden walkway enclosed by the birch; the eye does not register the scope of the landscape until it reaches the houses, whose huge terraces offer vast vistas of the nearby river and valley surrounding it. The main spaces are orientated towards the south and are all connected with the terraces that represent the real cores of the houses. The buildings have also been designed as barriers to protect the terraces from the strong winds of the area.
