Villa Blåbär by pS Arkitektur

View all 27 Photos

Upon the rocky hillside of Nacka, Sweden sits Villa Blåbär, a sprawling form of a building that mimics the jarring angles of the surrounding ground. Though the slopes and seemingly nonnegotiable terrain challenges the footprint of the villa, pS Arkitektur succeeds in delivering a smooth transition from one end of the building to the other. With a floor plan organized from private to public, the interiors of the black-clad villa represent a journey that culminates in an open, two-story space with a small loft overlooking the kitchen. The villa’s stretch is accompanied by an outdoor deck that accentuates the jogs and bends along the building’s length.
