House on two stairs by Förstberg Ling
Alexander Zaxarov
Sep 28, 2020

Located in a densely wooded plot with undulating terrain on the south-eastern coast of Sweden, the idea behind House on Two Stairs designed by Förstberg Ling was to touch the ground very gently and to keep the intrusion of the natural landscape to a minimum.

To achieve this, the narrow building is placed on the site to avoid as many trees as possible and to keep the footprint small. Slightly elevated on steel legs, the house balances on two cast-in-place concrete stairs that also include ground connections of all the utilities.

The house is concieved as an enfilade of seven equally sized rooms. Each space with it's own unique view and light condition separated by walls of cross-laminated timber. The house is finished with an untreated wood panel and sheet metal roofing.
