Solbrinken Ordinary House by In Praise of Shadows

Situated between the forest and a former garden, the Solbrinken Residence is a black-painted single family home with a detached studio.

Architect Katarina Lundeberg of Stockholm-based architectural practice IPOS made out of the varied landscape and turned the no-windows walls toward the neighbours.

Inspiration from architect:

In the area between the main house and studio is an outdoor space for recreation and play, with a Japanese or Skåne character. The spacious public zone of the main house runs the length of the plan with interaction between kitchen, living and sleeping areas.
