Villa Vy by Kjellander Sjöberg
Alexander Zaxarov
Feb 4, 2020

Villa Vy by Kjellander Sjöberg is designed for a family wanting a robust house, tailored for their specific needs with various rooms for joint activities, privacy and flexibility.

The three-storey high volume gives views that connect the house to the nature-both the surrounding site and the distant landscape. At the same time, through stacking rather than spreading the floor plan, the compact volume preserves much of the forested site in its untouched natural state, with tall pines and mossy stone outcroppings. In a way, the house captures the romance of the forest. It brings to mind a hunting lodge. The color tones are natural, the materials robust.

In the floor plan, it's the communal areas that dominate. There are three social spaces that also serve as circulation spaces, one on each level. None is designed for a specific function, except for the fact that the one on the ground floor has a kitchen at one end. Instead, these spaces are more like three surfaces that relate to the landscape.
