House for Mother

Far from the Hitchcock reference you're all expecting, House for Mother is perhaps as cozy as concrete and aluminum can get. Located in Linköping, Sweden, the firm of Förstberg Arkitektur och Formgivning (FAF) designed the home as part of the Linköpingsbo 2017 housing exhibition. The aluminum facade and roof avoid feeling intimidating despite the materials reputation and the polished concrete floors "fold up" at the edges to create a parameter of bench / shelf. We especially appreciate that the timber framing features some pretty impressive joinery, but Scandinavia has always has had a way with their woodworking. For more, visit FAF. Via designboom.
