The floating villa has been a challenge in many ways. The task of designing a floating villa became the task of developing a new way of living that recognizes the special qualities of a life close to nature. A residence for a client grew to an industrial project, with leading words as; sustainability, low maintenance, development of materials and building, care for the environment, low energy costs, identity.
A comfortable living and a lay-out that gives you the optimal feeling of the closeness to the water. 178 sqm of living area, 30 sqm terrace close to the water and a 100sqm "garden" on the roof.
And during 2004, in cooperation with the city of Kalmar, Sweden's first city plan that regulates floating living.
