Save this picture!© Frederik VercruysseExtremely profound form-studies, town-planning regulations and a respectful attitude to nature defined the design-attitude. Characteristic to the concept is the rural, amorphous form with a hipped roof with different angles of inclination, flattened on top, and ‘living the other way around’, meaning living on the upper floors and the big roof terrace in order to enjoy the splendid view.

Oyamel emerges from the earth, shyly facing the street yet turning boldly towards the Cofre de Perote and the Pico de Orizaba, which are framed by its architectural tendency to seek the unfolding of interior space to the exterior. It exists in dialogue with its environment, on a large plot of land. The ideal place will be in the center, just at the border of the ravine, under shelter and in harmony with the greenery.Save this picture!Courtesy of RP Arquitectos +Adrián LabastidaThe extensive use of concrete suggests a rock in the hill; the horizontal frame houses the spaces which move in rhythm with the surroundings; walls, slab and floor which boast a tonal palette that remains primitive while the brilliance of color is left to the visuals outside. A board frame was used to reduce the waste of wood. It complements the rustic aesthetic, which is to dialogue with the surroundings. The honest lines of concrete are permeable to the landscape. The juxtaposition of the spaces evokes a photographic frame of the views of the forest.Save this picture!Courtesy of RP Arquitectos +Adrián LabastidaAt first sight, three solid introverted spaces jump out, jealous of the interior but open to the landscape to maintain euphony with the views. In the first are the social spaces that converse directly with the exterior through large openings covered with aluminum and crystal: the living – dining room and the game room are anchored in the same center for their synchrony of activities and the link with the pool and the terrace.

The site for the new house and studio lies at the end of a residential terrace in East London and for many years was occupied by a tumbledown brick storage warehouse and single storey garage.Save this picture!© Fernando MañosoDespite being in poor structural condition it was agreed that the brick warehouse was an attractive and charismatic part of the street and the new building was created around as much of this as could be saved. A new slab was cast inside to increase the ceiling height, a new studio was added to the west, new living accommodation was tied in and around the retained facade, original walls were re-built and the whole was re-roofed and upgraded to modern standards.Save this picture!Floor PlansThe site is surrounded at the rear by neighbouring gardens and one of the main challenges was to bring daylight deep into the building, particularly at ground level where there could be no openings in three of the four elevations.Save this picture!Courtesy of Anthony Carlile ArchitectsPart of the solution was to provide the staircase with large, first-floor windows to bring light down to the spaces below. The open-plan arrangement that allowed this to work was made possible by using fire-rated roof lights which removed the need to enclose the stair.Save this picture!SectionsThe large windows also make it is possible to see right through the building and create a minimal connection between the new studio and the existing warehouse.Save this picture!© Fernando MañosoThe plan of the building is simple and flexible with storage and utility spaces integrated around the stair. Each of the main rooms has more than one source of sunlight and despite the constrained location, the spaces are light.

Villa Radal is a single-family house in Långedrag west of the city of Gothenburg. The name of the place was first recorded in 1766, and then referred to a saltery and a fishing village to the west of Gothenburg. The great herring rush in the late 18th century contributed to the development of the village. But it was only when the tramway extended to the west in 1908 that a larger number of villas, both lavishly architect designed and smaller with a self-built character, began to be erected in the area.Save this picture!© Erik LefvanderThe environment has been characterized by sparsely developed plots surrounded by gardens and parks. By such a park, on the slopes of Osberg Hill, Maritime news editor Fritz Schéel erected a villa in 1915. A park-like garden was also built around the house overlooking the surrounding area.Save this picture!© Erik LefvanderIt is on a subplot from villa Schéel that villa R is erected. The house climbs Osberget’s northern slope and closes the last opening to the neighborhood’s enclosed oak-grove. The building has a bricked ground floor, and a glazed second story looking out into the surrounding canopy. The roof protrudes over the envelope and follows the angle of the surrounding terrain. You enter villa R from the north and are guided through a small hallway towards a central ground floor living room. Bedrooms surround the living room, and an atrium-like staircase brings light into the in-slope story. Save this picture!© Erik LefvanderSave this picture!© Erik LefvanderThe second floor, containing the kitchen, a second living room, and balconies and terraces is like a command bridge: almost entirely glazed to create long views and take in the surrounding landscape. The rooms are interconnected horizontally but vary in section, with roof structures that misalign with the interior rooms. The intention is to achieve a spatial richness with variation both on the inside and outside.Save this picture!© Erik LefvanderSave this picture!Floor planSave this picture!© Erik LefvanderThe construction materials are selected for the harsh Swedish west coast climate. The exterior is natural gray plaster, the inside of the terraces and exterior ceilings are clad in heat-treated pine and the roofs are covered by galvanized steel. The inside of the house is continuously gray with polished concrete floors, and walls and ceilings covered in composite boards consisting of a mixture of wood chips and concrete.Save this picture!© Erik LefvanderProject gallerySee allShow lessKengo Kuma Designs Hans Christian Andersen’s Museum in DenmarkArchitecture NewsAllesWirdGut Win Competition to Redesign Historic Gösserhallen in ViennaArchitecture News Share Sweden Photographs Villa Radal / Bornstein Lyckefors CopyHouses•Långedrag, Sweden “COPY” Architects: Bornstein Lyckefors Area Area of this architecture project Projects Year: Villa Radal / Bornstein LyckeforsSave this projectSaveVilla Radal / Bornstein Lyckefors ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/958278/villa-radal-bornstein-lyckefors Clipboard “COPY” Save this picture!© Erik Lefvander+ 29Curated by Paula Pintos Share Area: 219 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Houses 2019 CopyAbout this officeBornstein LyckeforsOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn FacebookLångedragSwedenPublished on March 10, 2021Cite: “Villa Radal / Bornstein Lyckefors” 10 Mar 2021.
