Residential Architecture:Villa Överby by John Robert Nilsson: “..This house on a rocky hilltop..sits upon on a limestone-covered concrete plinth, which provides a continuous floor surface inside and outside of the house..The exterior of Villa Överby is finished in matte black, interrupted only by glass walls which provide views out towards the sea..The glass wall frames sit in recesses in the limestone slabs, allowing the base of the glass to be flush with the ground..The plinth extends out into a terrace at the rear of the building with a cut-away at the edge that creates a sunken swimming pool..” Extensive glazing, abundant natural light, views, lovely, very clean interior..
