The project consists in nine single-family detached houses with a residential activity building. This project is designed to suit the inhabitants who live in Halmstad. It includes green areas to walk, playing areas and gardens. However, for many months the weather in Halmstad is relatively cold, therefore, the project includes a common building where residents can play sports, relax, meet even sunbathe. This will enhance the status of the area.
My work pushes towards a form of architecture with less emphasis on ornament and a greater emphasis on form, function, materials, clarity and quality. All homes in the plot are designed to cater for a more relaxed mode of family living. These dwellings fit with a modern lifestyle, with the main points being comfort and with a balance between private and communal space within the home.
