How To Build A House With A Limited Budget in Sweden

Simple, functional, yet cozy and contemporary. The house spotted on europaconcorsi.com was built with a very limited budget, having in mind a large open space with lots of beds, a cooking area in the middle  and washing facilities outside. I find it very interesting the fact that there is no hierarchy between the doors – anyone can be used as an entrance. Four large openings are placed according to rotational symmetry, one in each facade: a fixed window facing north, and other three glazed doors. And, in order to bring more natural light inside, two roof windows add skylight to the interior. The walls are built out of lightweight concrete masonry blocks and the roof is covered with corrugated steel sheets, preferably used on farm buildings in the region. Measurements of the building volume and openings were chosen to fit the size of the masonry blocks so the waste of material could be minimized.
