House Lagnö wins the international House of the Year Award 2013 arranged by World Architecure News. House Lagnö is set in the Stockholm archipelago. Designed by Tham & Videgård Arkitekter. The house is designed as an integral part of nature, where the material’s weight and color scale connects to the archipelago granite bedrock.
The exterior character of the house is derived from a number of transverse gable roofs, which connect to each other. This provides a sequence of varied room heights for the interior and create places in the otherwise completely open living room that stretches through the entire length of the main building. Terrace, interior floors and facades are made of exposed concrete with plywood formwork. The interior is painted white with woodworks in ash.
