Malmö-based architects Förstberg Ling introduces its ‘House for two Artists’, a project defined by a wide open atelier space with dramatic timber beams overhead.

Built for industrial designer Jenny Nordberg and artist Andreas Kurtson as an extension to an older villa, House for Two Artists had a simple brief: create a big, open atelier space at a low budget.

The square footprint and the cinderblock walls of the new building was a cost effective way of creating the requested space. Carried by the cinderblock wall, the free-spanning glulam beams and the sixteen skylights create a flexible space that can be configured to the shifting needs of it's owners. The exterior of the walls and the roof, with its large overhang, are clad in a pitch black tar felt, contrasting with the bright interior.
