Residential Architecture: Hus-1 House by Torsten Ottesjö: “..With double curved surfaces, compact and efficient planning it is a house on the human scale that blends effortlessly into the surrounding nature..Situated in the unique cultural landscape of the Scandinavian West Coast, Hus 1 reflects and communicates with its surroundings. The natural materials used in the construction have made it a friendly place for both humans and nature for its whole life cycle..The building was constructed on site. The idea was a house as personification – a structure designed to fit the needs of a two specific people. The majority of the furnishing is built into the house. The dwelling features convex walls which seam together with the floor creating both a sense of airiness and a naturally curved seating space along the sides of the interior. The structure is free-standing, so it can be moved anywhere; though the feeling is that it has actually sprouted out of the ground it rests on..” Original take on a small tailor-made home..article includes a video..
