The Palmgren House – John Pawson

The Palmgren House sits on the shores of Lake Drevviken, south of Stockholm. A minimalist, boxy architecture that quietly blends into its environment with the changing of the seasons. With the use of materials like Granite, Limestone and Teakwood the open plan architecture of the interiors provide a seamless connection to the nature outside. Taking seven years for the project to be completed, the house is a brilliant representation of Pawson’s minimalist, pared-back architecture.

The view is enjoyed from every room in the house. Limestone floors and doors and window frames in teak.
The living area overlooking the enclosed inner courtyard. The table was designed from Öland limestone and weighs 450 kilos. Sofas are from Claudio Silvestrin.
