Baron House

The site of this vacation house in rural southern Sweden came with a conventional arrangement of farm buildings set around a courtyard and the earliest phases of the project explored the possibility of retaining some elements of the original structures. The final design raises four single-storey wings of accommodation on the cleared footprint of the old. Agricultural precedents are reworked in both the form and materiality of the architecture, producing pitched roofs of corrugated zinc, white rendered walls and timber elements
stained with traditional Falun black paint. Full-height openings fill the interiors with natural light and with views out to the agrarian landscape and inwards across
the courtyard.
