Residential Architecture: Villa Ladybird by Johan Sundberg: “..Two narrow wings in an open angle create views and the same time just enough protection from neighbors and winter winds. The inside of the open atrium form of the house is glazed with sliding aluminum doors. These parts of the facade has a protruding roof, tapered for slimmer lines and reduced visibility from the interior..The facade is clad with custom profile Siberian larch with metal detailing in anthracite zinc. The foundation is a concrete slab with an outer wall made from light clinker. The structure is based on a wooden frame reinforced by steel over the larger openings. The roof is constructed with trapezoid metal plating covered with insulation boards, eliminating the need for a ventilated construction that would be vulnerable to saltwater air. The aluminum glazing is treated to withstand these corrosive winds, as are the walls which have extra layers of protection beneath the wood..” Low profile, extensive glazing, natural light and views, nature, privacy..
