Hus-1 is a house on the Swedish West coast, nestled in a valley far from urban linearity, it aims to provide an optimal living environment.
Hus-1 is a small house designed and built by Torsten Ottesjö. The building was constructed on site. The idea is a dwelling as personification. 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.
The 25 sqm house aims to provide a living space beyond understanding. It is supposed to fit, to enable – not to distract or cause attention.
